Antebellum rice bread

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 tablespoon Melted butter
½ tablespoon Melted shortening
1 cup Cooked rice
½ cup Cornmeal
1 teaspoon Salt *
1 dash Cayenne pepper (optional)
1 cup Milk
3 Eggs, beaten

This one is from The Bread Winners Cookbook by Mel London.

This recipe was given to me by an old friend in Savannah, who told me that it was a favorite breakfast bread on the plantations.

* The salt, though traditional, may be eliminated if you choose to do so.

Place the melted fats and the rice in a heavy saucepan, covered, over very low heat. Mix cornmeal and salt and pepper, then stir milk into beaten eggs and blend in the cornmeal. Blend together with the rice mixture and put into greased 8- or 9-inch square pan.

Bake at 450 deg.F. until firm when tapped with finger and well browned on top--about 25 minutes.

Cut into squares to serve.

Makes 1 to 1½ dozen squares. NOTE: This just looked like an interesting combination... and like something that would create a little more (or different) texture.. a fun bread. It almost sounds like it might come out a custardy bread...
