Corn Bread

The Bread Baker’s Apprentice Challenge: No 10. Corn Bread

It feels like forever since I've posted anything for the BBA challenge and I aim to remedy that but getting back into the swing of bread baking this year. Each week (or so) I will be making a bread recipe from Peter Reinhart’s wonderful book, The Bread Baker's Apprentice: Mastering the Art of Extraordinary Bread. I must admit I have missed baking my own bread. There is something theraputic about it and I look forward to improving my bread making skills

The tenth recipe in the Bread Baker's Apprentice Challenge is Corn Bread.

I love corn bread and I must say this is the BEST recipe I've ever tried. The addition of the whole kernels of corn helped keep the bread moist and sweet tasting. The bacon takes this bread over the top in flavour and given a choice I wouldn't skip it in this recipe.

For my corn bread, I decided to make it in muffin tins and I used turkey bacon. They were a hit and taste even better the second day.



Show some love to the other challenge participants in this challenge.

Up next: Cranberry-Walnut Celebration Bread!
