On this noble occasion I thought of baking a herb cornmeal bread that often dotes my kitchen top. Seeing Deeba’s Moroccan holiday bread, I went on adding 1 tablespoon of instant yeast instead of regular 1 teaspoon and it did a make difference to my regular cornmeal bread. It was soft and here goes the list of ingredients to make a nice loaf and that too for a worthy cause.
½ cup cornmeal
4 teaspoon sugar
3 teaspoon mixed dried herbs (rosemary, parsley and basil)
2 teaspoon olive oil
½ cup plus two tablespoons lukewarm milk (110”F warm)
1tablespoon instant dry yeast
Few tablespoons of corn kernel
1 heaped teaspoon of sesame seeds
In a bowl mix all the ingredients expect corn kernel and sesame. Knead to smooth and soft dough for about 7 to 8 minutes. Kneading is an important step and I am glad that my kitchen aid with a kneading attachment does a good work.
I prayed silently as I dunked and enjoyed it with roasted red pepper soup.
I have tagged the following bloggers to join in the campaign, please do feel free to join the campaign and if for any reason you can’t let us pray in our special way that the world is a little less cruel on the underprivileged. Like someone said “poverty is the biggest crime against humanity”.
