Directions

  1. Place boiling water into a large mixing bowl. Stir cornmeal slowly into boiling water to make mush, stirring constantly to eliminate large lumps. Add baking soda to molasses, and beat until light and foamy. Add molasses mixture to cornmeal mixture. Mix in butter or margarine and salt. Stir in cold water to make mixture lukewarm. Dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm water, and add to cornmeal mixture. Gradually add flour.
  2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead until smooth. Place in a large greased bowl. Grease the top of the dough. Cover with a damp cloth, and allow to rise until doubled.
  3. Punch down dough, and divide into 6 parts. Shape 4 parts into loaves, and place in 9 x 5 inch loaf pans. Use the remaining dough to make into 2 dozen rolls. Allow to rise until doubled.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 35 to 40 minutes, or until brown.

This bread was very dense, but had a wonderful flavor because of the molasses. The loaves turned out much better than the rolls. The rolls were too dense from the beginning. I love the bread as a breakfast bread, toasted with jam.

This was tasty bread. I made it entirely in my new KA so it was very easy. I scaled the recipe to one loaf as it is only for me. It is a very dense bread. I did store it in fridge which did seem to cause it to get rather gummy on the bottom. Toasting that fixed it right up, but be advised this happens if you store it in fridge
