Recipe Ingredients for Bread - Broa Portuguesa

1 cup (4 1/8 ounces) yellow cornmeal
3/4 cup hot water
1/2 cup skim milk, warmed
2 teaspoons instant yeast
1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon olive oil

Recipe Directions for Bread - Broa Portuguesa

  1. Mix together the cornmeal and hot water in a small bowl. Stir in the warm milk, and let the mixture cool to lukewarm. Then add the remaining ingredients and mix and knead them together ? by hand, mixer or bread machine ? to form a smooth, slightly sticky dough.

  2. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl and turn it over, so that the top is oiled. Cover the dough and let it rise for 1 1/2 hours, or until it?s puffy; this rising time will develop both the flavor and the gluten.

  3. Turn the dough out onto a lightly greased or floured work surface, knead it lightly (just once or twice), and form it into a ball. Place it onto a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheet, or one that?s been sprinkled with cornmeal. Cover it and let it rise for 45 minutes, or until it?s very puffy.

  4. Just before placing the loaf in a preheated 450F oven, spritz it lightly with water and make four slashes, each about 1/4-inch deep, into the top crust. Place the loaf in the oven and bake it for 10 minutes, then turn the oven down to 400F, and continue to bake for another 15 minutes, or until it?s golden brown.
