Portuguese Corn Bread for the Bread Machine (Broa)

Portuguese Corn Bread for the Bread Machine (Broa) created by MomLuvs6

Based on a recipe from Madge Rosenberg’s delightful cookbook, The Best Bread Machine Cookbook Ever – Ethnic Breads. She says, “Light, grainy broa partners chili or a spicy stew or thick soup. Smear a fresh or toasted slice with butter or soft avocado and/or tomato, or ladle a fish stew over toasted broa.” The default measurements are for a small 1 pound loaf; I have placed measurements for a large 1 ½ pound loaf in parentheses. Your bread machine may have a basic bread cycle much quicker than the 4 hour one I reference under the cook time. My photo shows it buttered with honey.

    Really disappointed. I used a Zo and followed the recipe exactly. The dough was wet like runny cake batter. Needless to say, it didn't really rise. Finished loaf was 2" tall. Crumb very tough and rubbery. Taste was very bland. Not for me.

    I substitute some whole wheat flour and some spelt flour into this recipe

    I don't see where the recipe tells you what size loaf this will make but note there are two options for measurements. I have a 1# loaf machine.

    @mersaydees What settings should I use on my bread machie? Just Basic bread, light crust? Oven is broke so can bake in regular oven. Thanks

    I made 3 of these in the last 3 days and each one I've tried something different. My favorite so far is add: 1 Cup of actual corn 2 tablespoons of hot jalapeno nacho slices The bread actually rises a bit taller, must be from the moisture, I don't know. This makes an already amazing bread over the top.
