Default Corn Bread!

Made some cornbread last night to see how it would go. User a recipe from www.taste.com (best website EVER).

I made this in a slice tin as that's what the recipe called for, however I realise now as I'd be using it in place of regular bread I should have used a loaf tin lol. Next time.

http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/19991/mexican+cornbread

Ingredients
- 1 3/4 cups polenta
- 2/3 cup plain flour (Gluten Free)
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 cup caster sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon Mexican chilli powder
- 1 2/3 cups buttermilk
- 1 tablespoon extra light olive oil
- 1 egg, lightly beaten

1.5. Pre-heat oven to 180 Degrees.

1. Mix polenta, flour, sugar, baking powder and Mexican chilli powder in a bowl.

When I found this recipe I read as far as needing polenta, bought that and assumed I'd have everything else at home.... I was wrong. But who needs to buy pre mixed powder when you have the internet readily available.

http://www.masterfoods.com.au/Produc...li-Powder.aspx

I'll probably get some now but if you're looking to try some for a once off this was pretty tasty!

2. Add to your dry mix: Egg, oil and buttermilk.

Again, didn't read very well and don't have any buttermilk. Got the 1 2/3 cups of milk and added a bit more than a tablespoon of vinegar, left it to sit for like 20 minutes and was good to go.

3. Add to the pan and cook for ~40 min (until a fork comes out clean and dry)

*tip* if you're going to cut it up, do it whilst it's still warm as it's very.... brittle once it cools.

if you want to die a happy cholestoral clogged death I can highly recommend making creamed corn and then using it as part of the liquid portion of baking cornbread.

Same here.
The bacon and eggs looks good with the corn bread.
Is corn bread better for you then regular wheat based bread?

Take a handful of corn, a piece of sponge cake ($4 coles stuff) and sprinkle it with sand for texture.

OP - thanks for posting this up, it's something I've always wanted to try

It's certainly alot better fresh than when it cools down.

I think it has a strange texture, kinda like a slightly granular sponge cake. it's sweet but a tiiiiny bit spicy (or I've just miss-measured because I don't have the proper spice mix)

I didn't think it was better for you but apparently polenta has a fair bit more iron than plain flour, however has more calories and carbohydrates (according to the calorie counting website I use, amusing the info is right)

Per cup
----------Polenta Flour
calories----520----445
carbs------108----91
fat-------- 0------2
protein-----12----13
iron--------40-----0
