Recipe by Benthe (Danish)
When my sister recently was put on a gluten and lactose free diet, I went all over the Internet looking for a rye bread for her. This is what I found at hindbærsnitten.dk. It is so good, that my DB asked if I would make it for him, too. The dough will be thick and sticky like cold oatmeal, don't worry about that it will bake up fine. So I do, using regular flour though. The taste is fantastic, a little hard to slice. Freezes well.

- 200 ml yellow cornmeal
