This recipe being in the book The Bread Baker's Apprentice actually confused me. I guess Peter was so passionate about this recipe he had to include it along with the other yeasted breads. Anyway, I am not a huge cornbread fan, but Nic was quite enamoured with the end result. Fortunately, we were also able to share with my sister and her family as well.

soaking meal


Sounds crazy, I know, but this was a two day event. The corn meal was soaked the night before

The next morning, I mixed together the soaked cornmeal, salt, flour, sugars, milk, and baking soda.

Then the frozen corn kernels were tossed in

The bacon was fried and put aside to cool. Then the slices were broken into pieces.

The batter was poured into the pan and topped with the bacon before being put into the oven

Taadaaaa! The warm and crusty cornbread. Think sweet, savoury, and bread.
