Why Cornmeal Bread With Barley Flour?

Cormeal Bread is usually very soft and light as it is mainly white bread flour with the addition of the cornmeal. My recipe like a lot of cornmeal bread recipes also included the addition of an egg. The egg adds extra fat and a little sweetness so the recipe uses less of each of the ingredients that are used for this.

I found that the recipe I had for cornmeal bread tended to rise too much. It occurred to me that on the other hand the recipe for barley bread never rose enough. I thought about it for a while and then decided to combine the cornmeal and barley bread recipes to come up with a cornmeal and barley loaf. I had never heard of this but thought that the flavors would combine well. Boy was I ever right the combination is delicious and this recipe was born.

Cornmeal Bread with Barley Flour - Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 3 hours 20 min
Ready in: 3 hours 30 min
Yields: 2lb loaf - 16 Slices

Ingredients For Cornmeal Bread with Barley Flour

  • 1.5 Cups Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk, Could Use Soy, Flax or real Milk
  • 1 Large Egg, Add to measure and then add Milk to make 1.5 cups
  • 2 Tbs Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Could use Canola oil or Butter if you prefer
  • 2 Tbs Unpasteurized Liquid Honey, Could use sugar
  • 2.5 Cups White Bread Flour, Or unbleached general purpose flour
  • 1 Cup Barley Flour
  • 1.5 Tsp Sea Salt, Or Kosher Salt
  • 1.25 Tsp Bread Machine Yeast, Or Quick Rise / Instant Yeast
  • 0.5 Cup Cornmeal, Bob's Red Mill is good

The Bread Machine I Actually Use

Some Bread makers may not yet have bought their machine; this is the one I use and highly recommend. To clean it just empty out the loaf once baked add a couple of drops of dish soap, then add warm water and let it stand for 15 to 20 minutes. Empty the water out remove the paddles (gently wiggle them back and forth until they self release) and rinse out any softened bread that was caught in the paddles. Dry with soft paper towel and replace in machine for next use.

This machine is consistently the best seller on Amazon or close to it and definitely is worth the extra in price. If you are not sure, read all of the reviews on all of the other machines first! I know you will return, and will not be disappointed.


  1. Add Milk to the bread pan first.
  2. Add the Olive Oil to the pan.
  3. Add the Liquid Honey. Tip:- Use the same measuring spoon you used for the oil the Honey will slip right off! You can also warm the Honey for approximately 15 secs in a micro Wave to make it easier to pour.
  4. Carefully add the White Flour. Level each Cup with a knife and spoon the flour into the cup so that it does not compact too much. You want to leave a mound in the center of the pan.
  5. Make an indent in the top of the White Flour, and carefully measure the salt, level each measuring spoon with your knife, before adding.
  6. Measure and add the Barley Flour over the salt and White Flour. Level with a knife as before.
  7. Make an indent in the Barley Flour then measure and add the Bread Machine Yeast.
  8. Measure the Cornmeal and add about half on each side of the yeast.
  9. Put the bread pan back into the machine, ensuring the yeast does not get wet yet.
  10. Set the machine to Basic Bread course or program and press start.

Bread Machine Recipes For Canada and USA

The American and Canadian Flours are different, and probably this applies to other countries too, as a consequence you should always use a bread recipe for your native country. I am including Amazon links to the best books for US and Canadian citizens here.

    For the bread or the maker? You can have either or both if you pay for them! LOL

    I am actually making the Historic grains bread right now, but have added 2 tablespoons of Wheat Germ and a tablespoon of ground flax seed. It makes a rich moist grainy bread that is really good!

    Congrats to you for coming up with an original recipe. I'll have to buy some barley flout, but this seems like it will make a great bread. Voted up ++

    The Zojirushi Virtuoso that I use seems to be the strongest and most highly rated Bread machine from Amazon. I have a Hub where I reviewed it. I hope that you found it and if you buy one please give this recipe a try. There are also some great bread machine recipe books that are gluten free. I have the book 125 Gluten Free Bread Machine Recipes by Donna Washburn and Heather Butt.

    I am seeking a great bread machine as I am happy with my wheat free lifestyle and wish to make homemade bread. Cornbread from Trader Joe's is my favorite but I will have to give this a try.

    Thank you! Voted up!

    Cinnamon Raisin Bread sounds yummy! I will have to find a great recipe for that, or better still come up with my own variation of it! Good Hub idea.

    I am a big believer in breadmakers. Cinnimon raisin seems to be what I gravitate towards.

    @Rachel L Alba, I just made a loaf yesterday and it is delicious, I really hope you enjoy it too. I have started using Almond and/or Cashew milk to make it and find that adds a slightly nutty flavor and of course prevents any issues for the lactose intolerant.

    Hello Stephen - There's nothing like a great recipe for cornbread and yours is great! I like the idea of using barley flour as I am a vegetarian and health conscious.

    All I need now is a bread machine. Any of my kids listening? I have a birthday coming up. :)

    I'm excited about trying out your delicious recipe. Thanks for the photos and easy step-by-step instructions.

    It is certainly a lot healthier than the bread we used to eat! It has a really delicious nutty sweet taste from the honey and Barley flour. I hope you try it and enjoy it as much as we did.

    Hi Ghaelach,

    This recipe is delicious we bought the Zojirushi bread machine after a great deal of research and it is very durable and works really well. If it did break I would probably use the oven too, but I like being able to be really lazy, it takes me just 5 to 10 minutes to put the ingredients in and then just over 3 hours later I have fresh bread. It saves me a fortune on bread and pizzas and I have started creating my own recipes using the almond milk, which I find is so much better for us. I feel much healthier and that matters when you are over 60!

    If you do replace it I highly recommend Zojirushi's.

    Hi Stephen.

    This sounds good. Never tried cornmeal bread with barley flour. In the winter months I bake my own bread, which is mainly a multi-corn brown bread.

    These days I bake my bread in a loaf tin in the oven. Loved my bread automatic, but since it died a death I never got round to replacing it.
