Polenta Bread

I actually don’t eat bread that often, it really doesn’t agree with me. Some days, however, the idea of fresh baked bread is just so appealing, I can’t resist making a loaf to have with dinner. I’ve been thinking about corn bread recently and how good it tastes with a sweet, honey butter. I don’t really like the grainy texture of traditional cornbread, so when I ran across this recipe for polenta bread, I just had to try it. It’s a mix of white flour with a small amount corn meal added in. It’s got a light, crumbly texture with just a hint of the typical corn bread flavor. It has a beautiful soft yellow color, too. It’s a new favorite of mine!
