All Corns Square and Round - Round 2

Corn Bread

True to my word, I tried something different with yesterday's cornbread, this time a sweeter take with bite. I used a different recipe from the same book, my adaptation as follows:

*100g Polenta
* 50g Plain Flour
*50g Sugar
* 7 1/2g Bicarbonate of Soda
*150g Semi Skim Milk
* 30g Unsalted Butter
* 1 Egg
* 140g Plain Yogurt
* 1 Can of Corn Kernels, Drained

1. Sift the day (polenta through bicarb).
2. In a saucepan, melt the butter in the milk.
3. Whisk the wet into the dry.
3. Beat in the egg and yogurt.
4. Mix in the corn kernels.
5. Tip the mixture into a 20-25cm round tin, or cute mini muffin cases.
6. Bake for 30-40mins, till golden brown and passed the inserted skewer test.

Poppin' Out For A Walk

These babies passed the skewer test, and they passed the taste test as well. I still love the crunch of the polenta, and with the creamy corn kernels, they make a very enjoyable snack.

The best part of this, as is all my baking experiments, is packing them for family and friends. These sit pretty in the little boxes above and make neat little gifts. Me like.

Poppin' Ready To Eat

Yes I am poppin' mad about these little tykes. Poppin' happy too. :) Try it sometime and let me know if you have a poppin' time as I have.

A love poem for me, and for you.

I love you.
I love you for who you are.
I see you.
I see you for all the good you do.
I know you.
I have known you from your days of youth.
Promise me.
That you will love yourself as I have loved you.
To care for yourself as I have cared for you.
To be kind to yourself as I have been kind to you.
For you are a part of me, as I am a part of you.
And my love is everlasting and will not change.
Love yourself, for I love you.
