Cornmeal Bread

Labor day weekend is here!  I always have such mixed emotions about this weekend – the end of summer is sad, but I LOVE fall.  It is my absolute favorite season.  I can’t wait for cooler temperatures, gorgeous fall leaves, and pumpkin everything!  TheBetterHalf can’t wait for Notre Dame football to start (tomorrow!).  But I will enjoy this one last summer weekend 🙂 I always love to bake bread when I have a little extra time on the weekends. If you are the same, I have a great recipe for you to try this long weekend!  The name is kind of confusing – this is NOT corn bread.  It is a fluffy yeast bread with cornmeal in the dough. It is very similar to white sandwich bread, but the cornmeal gives it a nice texture and flavor.  There is just a hint of sweetness from some dark brown sugar, which I always love in my bread.  We have been eating this bread all week for sandwiches and toast and have been loving it!  The recipe comes from a great little bread cookbook that my aunt gave me, Beard on Bread.  I have made so many delicious breads from this book. Hope you have a great long weekend, and Go Irish!   Continue reading
