Eggless Mealie Bread
Being South African truly is an inheritance of foods...ranging from the very hot Indian curries to the classical Zulu potbreads to the Afrikaner braai...we really are quite fortunate to have such a delicious selection of foods to choose from. Today however, I'd like to share a mielie bread (or mealie bread or maize bread) recipe with you. It contains no eggs so is vegetarian friendly. Careful when popping this baby in the oven, this bread dries out very quickly if you do not take care...so, keep a close eye when baking.
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups maize meal
5 teaspoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
5ml vanilla essence
1 tablespoon margarine / butter
1/2 cup corn
Mix all your dry ingredients together first
Now, add the corn
Separately, combine all your moist ingredients
Add the liquid very slowly, little-by-little to the dry ingredients as you mix, making sure that the dough doesn't become too wet
Knead the dough for a minute
Grease 2 x 20'cm tins or one large tin
Add the dough to the greased tin and leave it to "rest" for an hour
Preheat your oven to 180'C degrees and bake the bread for roughly an hour or till golden brown
* * keep a close eye especially to the latter half of the cooking time to ensure that the bread doesn't dry out during baking
