Welcome to Fast2eat! If you’re looking for easy-to-prepare, nutritious, delicious, and Fast-2-eat recipes, then you’re in the right place.

This bread recipe using bread flour, whole wheat flour, and cornmeal is amazing! I love the hint of corn. It rises beautifully and tastes as good as it looks, with a satisfying, slightly crunchy texture lent by the cornmeal. And it always comes out perfect.

This is a fabulous bread for toasting and makes delicious sandwiches, too.

The cornmeal and whole-wheat flour add just enough texture to the bread, and a small amount of sugar sweetens it perfectly.

It’s good to know that healthy stuff goes into what we eat daily.

Whole wheat cornmeal bread Fast2eat

Whole wheat cornmeal bread Fast2eat

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 3 hours 48 minutes
Waiting time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 4 hours 8 minutes
I have replaced half of the bread flour with whole wheat flour. More fibre, more nutrients, better for you. 50% whole wheat bread with a crunch of corn meal. A very light and tasty bread! I love the nice mild cornmeal texture.
Servings: 16 slices

Ingredients

  • 1 1/3 cups Milk - 80-90°F/26-32°C
  • 2 tbsp Butter - room temperature or Margarine
  • 1 Egg - (lightly beaten)
  • 1 3/4 cup Whole wheat flour
  • 1 3/4 cups Bread flour
  • 3/4 cup Cornmeal
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Vital wheat gluten
  • 1 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 2 1/2 tsp Active dry yeast

Instacart is available in the US only at the moment.

Instructions

  • Attach the kneading blade in the Bread Maker pan.
  • Place ingredients into the bread pan following the recipe order (or following the order and method specified in your Bread Maker's manual – mine is: FIRST, liquid ingredients; SECOND, dry ingredients; LAST, yeast). Note: Make a small indentation in the middle of the flour with a finger or a knife. Add yeast to the indentation, making sure it does not come into contact with the liquid ingredients.
  • Carefully insert the bread pan into the Bread Maker and gently close the lid.
  • Plug the power cord into a wall outlet. Select the “Whole wheat” bread setting. If available, choose crust colour (I usually set Medium, but if you prefer, set Light or Dark), loaf size (1.5LB), and Press the Start button.
  • Caution: Do not use Delay Timer* for recipes with ingredients that can spoil, like eggs or milk. More information at: "Using the Delay Timer".
  • Open the lid and while using an Oven Mitt, firmly grasp the bread pan handle and gently pull the pan straight up and out of the machine. CAUTION: The Bread Maker and pan may be very hot! Always handle with care.
  • Use a non-stick Spatula to gently loosen the sides of the bread from the pan.
  • Turn the bread pan upside down onto a Wire Cooling Rack or clean cooking surface and gently shake until bread falls out onto the rack.
  • Cool for about 10-15 minutes before slicing.
  • To make perfect slices every time, use a Bread Slicer.

Notes

It’s always a good idea to open the bread machine’s lid during the second kneading cycle (after about 10 minutes) and check the consistency of the dough ball.
The dough is “just right” when it is a smooth round ball in appearance, soft to the touch, leaves a slight residue on your finger, and the bottom of the bread pan is clean of dough residue. 
  • If it’s too dry, add lukewarm liquid a teaspoon at a time until it looks right.
  • If it looks too wet, add flour a tablespoon at a time until it looks right.
  • If there is flour on the sides of the pan, use a Silicone Spatula to wipe the flour from the pan.
Important: This can be done during the knead cycle only. DO NOT remove the pan. KEEP it locked in the machine. Do NOT turn off the bread maker to adjust the dough.

Weather can affect your ingredients
If you live in a moist climate, chances are you’ll need at least the recommended amount of flour, maybe even 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup more. Bread dough should be sticky but still manageable, especially after the first rise. While you’re kneading, the dough should come together and pull away from the sides of the bowl, leaving the bowl mostly clean. I usually aim to have the very bottom of the dough still attached to the bowl. Try not to add too much flour because your bread will be denser. When you pick the dough up, some will stick to your fingers. After the first rise, it will be easier to handle!

You may also make this bread without the aid of a bread machine or make the dough in a bread machine and bake it in the oven.
Simply make the dough using your usual method (by hand, electric mixer or bread machine); allow it to rise until puffy, then shape it into a log; and place it in a lightly greased 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch (21.5 x 11.5 cm) bread pan. Allow the loaf to rise, covered, until it's crowned about 1 inch (2.54 cm) over the rim of the pan. If you want, brush the risen loaf with the beaten egg white, and sprinkle it with seeds. Bake it in a preheated 350°F/175°C oven for 35 minutes, or until its interior temperature registers 190°F/88°C on an instant-read thermometer. Remove the bread from the oven, remove it from the pan, and cool it on a wire rack.

How can you tell if the bread is fully baked?
I like to use a food thermometer. Mine is digital, so it’s very easy to use. Fully cooked bread will be 190-200°F/88-93°C. Bread recipes that include milk will need to cook until 200°F/93°C, but without, you can take it out once it reaches 190°F/88°C. The top will be golden brown.

However, the avoidance of gluten may result in reduced consumption of beneficial whole grains, which may affect cardiovascular risk. The promotion of gluten-free diets among people without celiac disease should not be encouraged.” (Source: http://www.bmj.com/content/357/bmj.j1892)
