Anadama Bread

Yield 1 (1 1/2-pound) loaf, 12 servings
My mother's recipe for Anadama Bread was one of the reasons I bought a bread machine. So once I figured out how the machine worked, I adapted her recipe. It still tastes great but contains much less sugar and fat.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups water, divided
  • 1/3 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup molasses
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 package dry yeast (about 2 1/4 teaspoons)
