Cornbread

(Misir Ekmegi)

Corn Bread
1 cup yellow corn meal
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk
1/2 cup yogurt, plain
1 tsp sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp lemon zest

Loaf Cake Mold, oiled

Mix the corn meal, flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Whisk milk, yogurt, sugar, egg and olive oil in another bowl. Stir into the dry ingredients and whisk. Pour the batter into the oiled Loaf Cake Mold.

Preheat the oven to 400° F (200° C). Place the mold on the middle rack. Bake for about 45 minutes. Place the Cornbread on the wire rack so it cools. Then slice this delicious Turkish Cornbread and serve.

Hi Annie,
My mum and me used to have Egg Sandwich when we got a chance to be together as a light lunch in Istanbul. Whenever I prepare it here for myself I always remember my mum:)

Hi Ali,
Yes corn meal is misir unu. I also have a Turkish version of all my recipes. I use the same order (same dates). If you need to find translations, this can be helpful :)

Hello,
All your recipes work and the end results are always delicious! You are like the Nigella of Britain, again whose recipes always work. Thank you for all your work you put in and sharing!

I can't wait to try this. Only thing is, I never baked bread before. I only have a dusty (from non-use) muffin pan. Do you think it will bake too quickly and ruin the recipe if I made them in muffin size? Thank you so much for this low sugar recipe!

Hi,
I think you can use the muffin pan. You need to check it with a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread or cake. It should be clean. If there is only a few crumbs on it, return the bread (or cake) to the oven and continue baking. As you said, it may bake earlier:)

Is corn meal healthier than wheat or rye one ?why the bread is popular in turkey? maybe it's because of its beautiful color :) I want to bake it one day...Polonyada sevgilerimler

Merhaba,
The word for bread in Turkish is ekmek. Bread has a major cultural significance in Türkiye. We Türks love our delicious ekmek:) Turkish women cook for centuries a variety of pot dishes, pastries, etc. So
juicy pot dishes can't be eaten without bread or pide. Dishes and
ekmek complement each other:)

If you don't have a freshly cooked dish at home, split the corner of
the fresh bread, stuff it with whatever you have at home like cheese, tomato, cucumber, olive, pastirma, sucuk or break the onion with your fist, peel and fill it:) Or just season with salt and pepper!

We have so many different kinds of bread and we love them all:)
Sevgilerimle,
