Expert Tips

Cornmeal--or dried, ground corn kernels--gives a crunchy sweetness to breads. Keep cornmeal fresh by storing it in a covered container in the refrigerator or freezer.

Rise to the occasion! If using self-rising flour, there is no need to add baking powder and salt.

Want to try corn muffins instead? Grease bottoms only of 12 regular-size muffin cups, or place paper baking cups in muffin cups. Fill about 3/4 full with batter.
