I heard about Anadama bread this past weekend in Paintsville. I had never heard of it – but we had everything at the house to make it. So, that was the first thing we made for this Thanksgiving meal.
It was much better than I thought it would be -much better than plain rolls.
1/2 cup warm water
2 1/4 tsp yeast
3/4 cup boiling water
3 T butter
1/2 cup yellow corn meal
1/4 cup molasses
1 T sugar
1 tsp salt
3 1/2 cup bread flour
Mixed warm water and yeast – stir to mix, set aside. Mix everything but flour. Mix with the yeast. Mix in flour. I would probably use a little less flour next time.
Knead till smooth. Put in buttered bowl, with top of bread buttered – covere and let sit about an hour. Punch down, knead about 3 minutes, cut 3 slits, let sit covered again for about 30 minutes.
Grease and corn meal a loaf pan. Bake at 375 for about 45 minutes.
