Molasses Cornmeal Bread (Anadama Bread)

I traded a loaf of bread with someone at bible study. This is the bread I received! It is great for sandwiches. We made grilled cheese with almond cheese to go with our tomato soup.

7-8c flour
1.25 c cornmeal
2.5t salt
1.5T yeast
1/3c softened butter
2.25c very warm (120-130F) water
2/3c molasses

Mix 2.5c flour, cornmeal, salt and yeast in KitchenAid bowl.
Add butter.
Gradually add water and molasses.
Beat and scrape the bowl as needed.
Add enough flour to make a stiff dough.
Knead 8-10 min.
Allow to rise in a greased bowl covered with a damp cloth until doubled in size.
Divide into two loaves for second rise in greased loaf pans.
Bake @ 375F for 45min.

Annie also said: "This dough is stiff enough to do free form loaves by doing the final rise on a pizza shovel and baking on a preheated stone if you want to."
