New favorite five-minute bread

I have blogged before about Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. I love it, and I resolved to try more recipes this year. So far I have tried three new ones -- just in January! The problem is, I found one I really love and I may never make another.

My new favorite is the Portuguese Corn Bread, called Broa. Mine is a little higher than the one pictured at the Artisan Bread website, but the taste and texture were perfect for me, so I'll not change anything. It was rather crunchy, but still soft on the inside, and made the best toast! Yum!

To make it, follow the same directions for the Master Bread, subbing 1-1/2 cups cornmeal for 1-1/2 cups of flour (as stated at the Artisan bread website). I did not use a cast iron skillet, just my same-old, same-old method for the other five-minute Artisan breads.

This sounds yummy! I think I'll make it my next batch.

Cool! My son-in-law LOVES cornbread, and since my daughter already uses the master recipe all the time to bake bread, I think she should follow exactly what you did! Can't wait to share this with her. Thanks, Barbara!
