When I chose this recipe for the Bread Bible Alpha Bakers, my intention was to find something that would make a great addition to the American Thanksgiving table and/or for the holiday table, in general. I worried a little that the reception wouldn't be huge since it wasn’t a loaf that we’d become so accustomed to baking, but variety is the spice of life, and the Corn Spoon Bread certainly fit the bill. The spicy and smokey Chipotle in Adobe sauce intensified the corn flavour, giving the bread a real wintery feel. Not only was it quick and easy, it was super delicious. I could easily see this spoon bread next to a turkey or ham with gravy and all the other fixings. - This was as easy as motherhood and apple pie (wink), however taking pictures of cooking onions, red pepper roasting, green cilantro and other savory ingredients was all new to me—different color palette and all.

MIXING THE SPOON BREAD BATTER

  • This was quick and easy. The most time consuming thing was to take everything out of the cabinets and put it all back.

  • The one egg white seemed to take forever to whip into stiff peaks. The egg white wasn’t old, so I don’t know why it took so long. I whipped it to a soft peak instead.

  • WHAT ARE THE ALPHA BAKERS? : Here's how it works: once a month, for the next two years, 25 Alpha Bakers commit to baking their way through every recipe of Rose Levy Beranbaum's The Bread Bible. Each month we post our experiences on our blog sites: our successes, our failures, our like and dislikes . The recipes are scheduled in advance so that everyone is baking the same recipe at the same time. No recipes can be shared in my Alpha Bakers Bread Bible posts due to publishing restrictions enforced by the publisher, but if you love to bake bread, this is a must-have book.
