Cover the bowl with a plastic sheet, and leave in a warm place for at least 2 hours.

These cornmeal baps are very soft, and can be eaten with either sweet or savoury additions, but are delicious on their own too.

This cornmeal bread should not be confused with the traditional American cornbread, which has a more cake-like texture.


Home made.
