I inherited this need to fill the oven when it is on. I blame my maternal grandmother and my mother. These moments result in some interesting rushed bakes and generally the results are good. This cornmeal loaf was a good one and I need to record my slap dash recipe on here so I can make it again.
I have toasted thick slices in the sandwich press at work and enjoyed it with a good wedge of Whitestone Brie. The cheese with the chutney baked into the middle made for a tasty lunch.
The above photograph is two thick wedges cut into quarters, just enough for a good lunch. I used Barkers Red pepper and Chilli Jelly for the sauce.
