Corn Bread / Misir Ekmeği

There is no one in my family from the Black Sea Region. Corn bread is mostly famous in that region. It has a beautiful landscape, very green. Lots of rain. They cannot grow much wheat so they depend on corn for their flour. My daughter liked a piece of corn bread offered in a restaurant, however she didn’t like any other one that we bought from the bakeries.  Soooo, I thought I’d give it a try. Here is what I came up with. She likes it very much now and makes me a proud mom when she says my recipe is better than the baker’s. It is so easy to make, she now bakes it herself from time to time.

Corn Bread

I have also used this recipe in my Turkish Cooking Classes so you can rely on it, it has been tested many times by many people.

It is definitely an easy to do. Just don’t forget that the water you add should be very hot.

I hope you like it too. When you make it cut it to small pieces, it looks more inviting. You can always a little extra touch by adding chopped dill or some cheese into the dough.
