Stilbaai Recipes – Meilie bread


Werner’s mom, Sonja said to me a few nights ago “I used to make a mielie bread years ago, but I lost the recipe” my answer “lets google it, I’m sure we can find a similar recipe”

I looked and found the below recipe, we slightly adapted to what she remembered it as.
I must say, very delicious.
We served it with chops and a green salad with a yoghurt dressing.

1 1/2 tins creamed sweet corn
2 eggs, beaten
5ml salt
60g melted butter(measured into 2 bowls of 30g each)
60ml warm milk
350g self raising flour
2ml paprika

Place sweet corn, eggs, salt, milk and 30g melted butter into a bowl and stir.
Mix in flour and paprika to form a dough.
Brush a bread tin with some melted butter, dust with flour and pour in the dough.
Bake at 170°C for about 45 minutes or until well risen and lightly browned . (insert skewer – when it comes out clean, its ready)

Brush with the rest of the melted butter to keep the top soft
