1-1/2 cups white cornmeal
1-1/2 cups boiling water
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon dry yeast dissolved in 1/4 cup water
1/2 cup milk
3 to 4 cups flour, sifted


Grease a 9-inch square baking pan. Combine cornmeal, water, salt, honey, and butter. Stir until smooth and cool slightly. Add yeast mixture and blend well. Add milk and flour, using enough flour to yield a firm dough. Knead 5 minutes or until smooth. Let dough rise in buttered bowl for 1-½ hours, then punch down. Let rise again for 1-½ hours, and punch down again. Transfer to greased pan and let rise again for 1 hour. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake 40 to 45 minutes, or until top is golden brown.


Serves 6-8.
