It all started when I was trying to pass time whilst waiting for my DD to finish her class. So I found myself wondering abt the aisles at a hypermart. Even tho' my initial intention is just to get some apples to munch on, but well, I ended up checking out many other things! LOL...
I picked up a can of corn kernels and then started to dream abt corn muffins! It's been some time since I last made some "Kenny Rogers" corn muffins and I've always wanted to try it with the canned corn instead of frozen ones. I found the frozen ones turned out very dry after baking. So in the shopping basket it went. :P
The muffins were good as expected... what can go wrong with honey, cornmeal and lovely corn kernels... and of course, a good recipe.
1 can of corn kernels measured 2 cups after draining out the brine. So I'm left with 1 cup of corn after baking the muffins. I decided to make a loaf of bread and incorporate the corn into it. So I looked thru' some blogs and settled on the milk loaf. Happy Homebaker has a translated version of the milk loaf, and good reviews too, so I took that recipe and ran! LOL....
I made some minor modifications to it...
What you need
- 1 egg
- 145gm milk
- 25gm sugar
- 5gsm salt
- 38gm butter
- 250gm bread flour
- 4gm dried active yeast
- 1/2 cup corn kernels
What to do
- Add the ingredients in the order as listed above into the breadmaker, except for the corn.
- Set the breadmaker to the sweet function, crust to light and selected 700gms as the dough weight and let it run.
- After 20mins of churning, the breadmaker beeped and I added the corn kernels in.
- After 2hrs 50mins, the bread is done!
The bread turned out really good... soft and airy. Everyone loves it... and so, it's a definate keeper! It looks like a very versatile recipe too... can imagine experimenting with chocolate, wholemeal or some other variations.
