This steamed Corn Bread Recipe is a favorite with the Zulu peoples of kwa Zulu Natal.

Although I have given the traditional method for making this corn bread the recipe may be altered by using whole kernel canned corn or sweetcorn if fresh cobs are not available.

Please do not attempt to substitute canned creamstyle corn into this Corn Bread recipe unless you want to end up with a gooey mess.

Corn Bread Ingredients

2 cups green mealies (shucked corn)
2 cups all purpose flour
2 Tbsp sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
cold water

Corn Bread Method

Grind the corn using a mortar and pestle or the griding blade of a blender/liquidiser

Mix all the ingredients together and add enough water to form a stiff dough.

Set aside for 10 minutes

Place the mixture in a greased loaf pan and steam for about 1 hours.

The traditionally correct way to make this corn bread is to put the dough into empty, clean, greased, 1lb vegetable tins, filling them full. These are actually easier to steam.

This corn bread recipe will make the equivalent of a 1 lb loaf, and as a steamed bread has an unusual texture and delicious taste

Corn Bread may be served either hot or cold, either way it is delicious with lashings of butter.

It makes a very pleasant change when served in place of toast with a traditional breakfast of bacon and eggs.
