    acerast's Note:

    This is from Carol Robertson's "Portuguese Cooking". The author shared that this is not like American corn bread and is often served with Potato and Kale soup. I can't wait to try it!

      I was looking for a traditional French-type white bread with corn flavor; this isn't it. As indicated in the recipe, the dough has to be baked in a pan; it's too soft for a free-form loaf. It's a little coarse in texture, and not very corn-y in flavor. It's very good bread, but not what I was looking for.
