Recipe Description
Anadama is an old fashioned bread made with cornmeal and molasses. The dough is dense, but as it rises it lightens and softens. The finished loaves slice perfectly for sandwiches. This recipe makes too much dough and it is too heavy to mix in a food processor, but Anadama bread can be kneaded in a stand mixer or by hand.

Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
1 1/2 Tablespoon(T)  active dry yeast
2 1/4 Cup(c)  warm water
1 1/2 Cup(c)  cornmeal
1/3 Cup(c)  molasses
1/3 Cup(c)  honey
1 Tablespoon(T)  vegetable oil
1/4 Cup(c)  wheat germ
2 Teaspoon(t)  kosher salt
2 Cup(c)  whole wheat flour
3 Cup(c)  unbleached, all purpose white flour


In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in the water. Add the cornmeal. Beat in the molasses, honey, and oil by hand or in a mixer fitted with a bread hook. Stir in the wheat germ, salt and whole wheat flour. Stir in the white flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until a soft dough ball forms. Knead until smooth and elastic. Place the dough in an oiled bowl. Turn it once, cover with a damp cloth towel, and let it rest for 1 hour or longer, until double in bulk. Punch the dough down to deflate it, divide it in half, and let it rest 5 minutes. Coat 2 loaf pans, about 8 1/2 by 4 1/2 inches each, with nonstick spray. Shape the dough into 2 loaves. This can be accomplished by using a rolling pin to flatten each dough ball into 2 rectangles, which are then tightly rolled up to form loaves. Or, they can be shaped by hand. Place the loaves in the loaf pans. Let rise, covered with a damp towel, until double in bulk, about 45 minutes to an hour in a warm, though not hot, space. Meanwhile, put the oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat it to 375° F. Slash the tops of the loaves and place them in the oven. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until golden brown and the loaves sound hollow when tapped. Remove the bread from the pan and cool on wire racks.
