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.
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)
How to Make It
Combine 1/2 cup water and cornmeal. Bring 1 cup water and salt to a boil in a small saucepan. Stir in cornmeal mixture, and cook 2 minutes or until thick. Stir in molasses and oil; cool.
Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Follow manufacturer's instructions for placing flour, yeast, and cornmeal mixture into bread pan; select bake cycle. Start bread machine.
