Kumquat-Cranberry Cornmeal Loaf

    Very surprised at how well this turned out; it makes me want to revisit the various polenta cake recipes I've seen over the years. I had no problem with it sticking...did previous reviewer remember to use the wax paper at the bottom of the pan and spray it as well? Like her idea of putting more cranberries in, but expect they would sink to the bottom anyway. I didn't bother with the flour, just used my olive oil misto, and didn't bother to slice the dome off. Didn't have kumquats, so just used orange rind in both the topping and the loaf. I used this as a dessert, with some orange flavored whipped cream. Will keep this in my rotation all year!

    I followed the recipe exactly as written and it came out great. I did use kumquats as I found them in the grocery store in late December. I would like more cranberries throughout the bread, but agree that most likely they would sink to the bottom. This bread has received rave reviews from friends as well.

    I used honey and turbinado sugar in place of the agave, and was very happy with the result. The corn meal really gave it a nice flavor. Next time I'll try to put the cranberry mixture in the center of the batter instaed of on the bottom, as it really stuck to the pan. (though i used my olive oil misto and floured the pan instead of using a canned spray, maybe that would work better?). Definitely will make this again, but the sugar and oil is really too high to be a cooking light recipe...
