Yeast Corn Bread Loaf Recipe

The golden brown crust, tender texture and mild cornmeal flavor make Yeast Corn Bread Loaf, from Fred Barnsdale of Pahokee, Florida, worth the effort. It's easy to slice, too.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 35 min. + cooling YIELD:16 servings


  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) Red Star® Platinum Superior Baking Yeast™
  • 1-1/4 cups warm water (110° to 115°), divided
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup nonfat dry milk powder
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2-1/4 to 2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour


  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm water. Add the cornmeal, milk powder, butter, sugar, salt, 1-1/4 cups flour and remaining water. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • 2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 3. Punch dough down; shape into a loaf. Place in a 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • 4. Bake at 375° for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack to cool. Yield: 1 loaf (16 slices).
