Yeasted Cornbread Loaf

I used to not be the world’s biggest cornbread fan, but this recipe, which I’ve made several times now, turned me around. The other day, I was thinking it would be fun to make a loaf of cornbread, rather than muffins or a pan. I wanted to use it to make sandwiches, but I figured the the cornbread recipe I normally use would be a bit too soft and crumbly.

I started looking around for recipes that were geared more towards loaves, and I came across this one for a yeasted cornbread. I’d never thought to make a yeasted cornbread before, so I went with it.

It turned out great! I feel like mine may not have baked up quite as high as I thought it would, but the dough definitely doubled both times, so maybe I was a bit deceived by the picture. This bread has a great cornbread flavor (though the corn flavor is not quite as prevalent as a standard recipe) and a really great texture, that’s somewhere between a chewy yeasted bread and a crumbly quickbread. It was very easy to put together, and makes a lovely grilled cheese. 🙂
