Sweet Corn Yeast Bread

In case you hadn’t noticed, I’ve starting getting into baking some breads.  And by “getting into,” I mean I have done it one other time.  I made some No-Knead bread and it wasn’t nearly as hard as I thought.  This is another bread recipe on one of my favorite websites, Serious Eats.  I had some corn that I had to make and in this recipe, the corn acts like the liquid or water to bind the dough together.

This is the type of bread I like now, easy to make, less kneading.  This bread will be crispy on the outside, not quite like regular corn bread, its more of a corn loaf.  Its great with a nice pad of butter, honey or even apple butter.  Its the season for that now.

Here ya go.  It would go great with my chili.

Makes one loaf

1/2 cups fresh corn (about 3 small cobs)
2 1/2 teaspoons (1 package) instant yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 tablespoon sugar
 2 1/2 cups bread flour (I only needed 2 1/4.  If you “scoop” your flour in the bag, you will need less.
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
Olive oil for greasing bowl
Cornmeal for dusting

Puree the corn in a food processor until smooth.  Add yeast, flour, salt, butter and sugar.  Proccess about 2-4 minutes, or until it forms a ball and doesn’t stick to sides.  If it appear too dry, add an additional tablespoon water, or if it is too wet, add flour a tablespoon at a time.

Knead the dough for about 2 minutes on a floured work surface.  Place in a bowl with a little oil and cover with plastic wrap.  Let sit at room temperature for about 90 minutes, until doubles in size.

Place a rack in the center of your stove and heat to 350.  Knead bread again for a minute or two and put it on a cookie sheet with a little cornmeal below.  Cover again and let sit for 40 minutes.

Remove wrap and make three small slices about 1/2 deep.  Cook for about 30-40 minutes, until completely golden and dark brown, but not burned.
