    Can I use corn flour baking bread?

    Sun Oct 13, 2013 10:22 pm Groupie
    Hi all,

    I have corn flour in stock and expect using it for baking bread. I have searched a while unable to find a recipe. All recipe found on my searching were using cornmeal.

    Please help.

    Corn flour - very finely ground corn kernels - would be used in conjunction with other flours, as it contains no gluten. It is not that common an ingredient here (except as masa harina, which is made from treated corn kernels and is not quite the same thing). I'll see if I can find something.

    Forum Host - the first recipe does suggest using masa harina if corn flour is not available so that might be another ingredient to use in searching for bread recipes.

    Hi duonyte,

    Thanks for your links.

    I have a pack of bob's red mill corn flour, stone ground, on shelves for sometimes. I expect finding a way using it for making bread.

    I'll try following recipe

    Brazilian Cornbread ( Bread Machine )

    We'll be interested in hearing how it works out, Satimis. There is a What Have You Baked Thread - why not share your results there?

    I wouldn't hesitate to substitute corn flour for up to 20% of the flour in a bread recipe. It won't rise as high as if all wheat flour were used, but the flavor might be interesting.

    There are cracker recipes here that call for "cornflour", but that term in British and Australian recipes usually means cornstarch. One of the recipes below is referring to the corn flour you have as it specifies the color.

    Oatmeal Wheat Crackers
    Just Healthy Crackers

    It's also used in gluten-free bread recipes.

    Hi all,

    Here comes the result;

    Brazilian Cornbread ( Bread Machine )

    Ingredients (suggested on above link)
    milk 1 cup
    water 1/4 cup + 3 tsp
    egg 1
    butter 43g
    sugar 37g
    salt 9g
    corn flour, yellow, stone ground 188g
    bread flour 318g
    anise seed (not available)
    active dry yeast 2 1/2 teaspoons

    Machine setting: basic white bread
    Loaf: 750g
    Bread crust: light brown

    The top of the bread rose first and then collapsed before baking finished.
    (unfortunately I couldn't upload photos)

    Texture is NOT bad but it tastes similar to biscuit rather than bread, easy to break.

    Suggestion would be appreciated. Thanks
