2 oz (50 g) cornmeal
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp salt
1 cup (8 fl oz.) milk, boiling

1/2 tsp Bicarbonate of soda (Baking soda)
2 tbsp (1 oz) 25 g shortening

method

1. In a large mixing mowl, mix together the salt, sugar and boiling milk. Cover and leave it in a warm place for 12 hours.

2. After this time the mixture should have bubbles in it.

5. When risen, knead in the remaining flour and the shortening.

6. Shape the bread into a loaf shape and put it into a 2 lb (1 kg) loaf tin. Leave in a warm place for about 30 minutes or until it has risen above the top of the tin.

7. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) gas mark 4.

8. Bake the loaf for 45 - 50 minutes, or until it browns on top and sounds hollow when tapped.

9. Cool it on a wire rack.
