Preparation Time: 1 hour 40 minutes   Baking Time: 35 – 40 minutes

Ingredients

500 g Cake flour ( 4 x 250 ml / 4 cups )
5 ml Salt ( 1 tsp )
5 ml Sugar ( 1 tsp )
3 ml Cayenne pepper ( ½ tsp )
30 ml Chopped onion ( 2 tbsp )
410 g Tin whole kernel corn, drained and reserve about 50 ml of kernel water
250 ml Cheddar cheese ( 1 cup ), grated
10 g Anchor Instant Yeast ( 1 packet )
60 g Margarine ( 4 tbsp)
160 ml Warm water ( ⅔ cup )
2 Large eggs, beaten

Method

  1. Mix the cake flour, salt, sugar and cayenne pepper together. Add the chopped onion, drained kernel corn
    and grated cheese and mix. Add the Anchor Instant Yeast and mix.
  2. Dissolve the margarine in the warm water and add the reserved kernel water, allow to cool down. The liquid must rather be cooler than too warm.
  3. Add the eggs and beat the mixture together.
  4. Add the liquid to the flour mixture and mix until the ingredients are well distributed.
  5. Cover with greased plastic and allow
    to rise in a warm place for 20 minutes.
  6. Knock the dough down and place
    into a well greased cast iron pot.
    Even the dough neatly into
    the pot and sprinkle with
    50 ml of grated cheese.
  1. Close with the lid and allow to rise in a warm place
    until double in volume, about 30 – 45 minutes.
  2. Place the pot on a solid cast iron plate and arrange
    prepared warm coals around the pot and place
    3 – 4 coals on the lid. Should the coals be too warm, move
    coals further away from the pot and remove 1 from
    the top of lid. Add hot coals, should the coals be too
    cold.
  3. Check from time to time and bake for about
    35 – 40 minutes, until golden brown.
  4. Allow to stand for 10 minutes and turn out. Wrap or
    cover in a tea towel, until ready for serving.

until golden brown. Stand in the pot to cool and turn out
for serving.

Mini Loaves

Make little pot breads or mini loaves but reduce the
