Italian CornBread/Pane di Granoturco

Bread baking at home is a kind of stress burster for me, love baking bread and cant explain how the whole house will smells while baking bread at home.You should live this fabulous bread baking moment coz we cant explain certain things in our life with words,have to live to realize how true it is. Since am hosting an event with Italian cuisine, i googled for an Italian bread. I crossed ciabatta,focaccia etc as i have baked already these bread, i dont want to make them again. When i searched for an Italian cornbread, i got this recipe from here,this bread sounds prefect for me and started preparing the bread dough and finally baked this beautiful cornbread at home last weekend.

I served this cornbread for our dinner with some grilled meats and salad, enjoyed again for breakfast with butter and jam, this bread turned out simply awesome,spongy with a beautiful crust, obviously the picture speaks a lot na, so guys if you are bored of the usual cornbread give a try to this fabulous bread and am sure you will definitely love it.This bread doesnt need eggs or any other dairy products, its completely vega friendly bread.Sending to Flavors of Cuisines - Italian event guest hosted by me,event by Julie.


1+1/2tsp Dry active yeast
1/4tsp Sugar
1/2cup Bread flour
1cup Luke warm water

Mix the dry active yeast,sugar,bread flour and luke warm water well and keep aside for 40minutes.

1+1/2tsp Salt
3tbsp Olive oil
1/2cup Cornmeal
2cups Bread flour

Now add the salt,olive oil cornmeal to the already prepared bread mixture and mix well.

Finally add the bread flour to knead for few minutes until you get a soft and stiff dough.

(Initially the dough will be sticky, dont forget to dust with enough flour and knead for 10-12minutes)

Arrange the kneaded dough in a greased bowl and keep aside for 2hours.

Once the dough doubled the volume,punch down and roll as a medium sized rectangle.

Roll it as a log, sprinkle some cornmeal over the baking tray. Drop gently the rolled log like dough.

Let it rise for an hour.

Preheat the oven 425F.

Make a deep slash in the middle of the log,place it in the middle rack of the oven.

Place an another baking tray to hold water on the bottom of baking tray and pour 2cups of tape water.

This helps to make the crust crispy, close the oven door immediately.

Bake for 30minutes or until the crust is nicely browned and firm top.

Enjoy with ur favourite spread.
