Balkan-Style Savory Cornbread

Savory, salty, and tangy, this cornbread is great for breakfast, lunch, or a snack. The recipe is a mashup of Bulgarian banitsa and Bosnian razljevak. Serve warm, topped with plain yogurt or eat it by its lonesome self. If you love sweet cornbread, this probably isn’t your cup of tea.



Step: 1

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Butter 9x13-inch baking pan; sprinkle 2 tablespoons cornmeal on bottom.

Step: 2

Sift all-purpose flour, semolina flour, 1/2 cup cornmeal, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. Whisk spinach, buttermilk, feta cheese, eggs, and vegetable oil together in a separate large bowl. Stir flour mixture into spinach mixture just until pourable batter forms. Pour batter into prepared baking pan.

Step: 3

Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes.

The quality of the flour could make a real deal to your bread. Different brands do vary.

To made this in a dough , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.

A dough’s first rising can be done in the fridge overnight . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can start it night before , then clear it off the next day.
