Cracked, sweet and hearty—cornbread grows up

Portuguese Cornbread (Broa)

Traditionally, broa is made with corn flour, which is dried corn that is ground finer than cornmeal. You can use finely ground cornmeal, but the bread will have some granularity in the crumb. This dense, hearty loaf is delicious sliced and spread with salted butter. Stored in an airtight container or zip-close bag, leftover broa will keep for up to three days at room temperature; the flavor and texture are best if the bread is toasted.
