Recipe For Chilli Cheese Maize Bread

My December holidays started with drinks at a friend, followed by supper out at the new Chinese place in the village. We got home late and after reading a chapter of my book I went to sleep hoping for a long lie in. I was awake by 5am and after pretending to sleep so that the dogs would settle down I got out of bed at 6am and made coffee. I had mine hot, read my book and blogs before making breakfast. After doing a few errands I turned my hand to baking this bread using pure instinct as to the baking time. My intention was to make rolls so I halved the recipe, but the batter was too thin for that so I placed the ingredients into my terrine, set the oven temperature to 180° Celsius and 20 minutes baking time and hoped for the best. I was most impressed with my guess work! Be careful however as this bread has quite a kick to it – and if you can handle the heat add another chilli. I served it with chopped coriander mixed in to plain cream cheese.

can you handle chilli heat?

  5. Awesome! Thanks T, will be trying this for sure! I found a recipe for 100% whole wheat bread, and it worked like a bomb, I think largely because I used good quality stone ground flour, and because of the quality of my breadmaker 🙂

    1. I am not sure of the textural differences but as they are from the same vegetable I am sure the taste will be quite similar 🙂
