This whole wheat corn bread is packed with whole grain, soft and fluffy and can be enjoyed with a hot soup. It tastes yummy too. I recently made this bread as an accompaniment for spring onion soup, which is my next recipe 😊 This is from my mom’s recipe collection.

The original recipe is by Chef Jyoti N Parekh. The original recipe called for all purpose flour but I have used 100% whole wheat flour.

Note: This recipe is tagged as a toddler friendly recipe. You can use full fat milk or 2% milk that your toddler is used to drinking

Ingredients

  • Whole wheat flour – 1 cup
  • Corn meal – 1 cup
  • Baking powder – 2 tsp
  • Baking soda – 1/2 tsp
  • Brown sugar – 1/4 cup
  • Milk – 3/4 cup
  • Curd – 1/2 cup
  • Melted butter – 1/4 cup

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes
  • Grease an 8″ loaf ton or 8″ square pan
  • Sift the flour along with baking powder and soda. Mix the sugar with the flour and keep aside
  • Beat the milk, curd, and melted butter in a stand mixer on medium setting or using a spatula and a bowl
  • Fold in the flour and sugar mixture carefully into the creamed mixture of butter, milk and curd , mixing gently until well combined. It’s important not to over beat the batter at this stage

  • Pour the batter into the greased pan.Give tin a light tap on table to spread air evenly in the batter and put immediately in preheated oven

  • Bake for 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until a light crust is formed and the bread passes the following tests :
    • Test by lightly touching the centre of bread when minimum cooking time is up. If no imprint is left, the bread is done
    • Pierce a fine skewer in the centre of the bread , if it comes out clean, it is done
  • Cool the bread on a cooling rack for a sufficient time

  • Place parchment paper or wax paper over the bread. The paper prevents the cooling rack from breaking the crust or leaving imprints. Place a second cooking rack on top of the bread and invert the bread while sandwiched between two grids. Remove top grid and the pan. Cool completely on grid

Enjoy the bread with some butter and a hot steaming soup 🙂
