Description

Known by its traditional name, Broa bread, this Portuguese cornbread is a dense, moist yeast bread. With a texture similar to rye bread, this bread is made purely from a blend of corn and wheat flour. Give your dough plenty of time to rise so that the yeast has time to react with the other ingredients giving your bread a lovely rise and texture. Expert tip, you will know your bread is done baking when it sounds hollow when you tap on the bottom.
