Corn bread p 139
« on: May 08, 2010, 05:44:30 AM »
The home recipe for corn bread in the 10th printing calls for 8 oz or 1/4 cup of fine cornmeal.  It should be 1 3/4 cups of fine cornmeal.

8 oz for me (227 grams) ends up being 1 1/3 cups, almost a half cup less than Anne Marie's. It seems that, depending on the cornmeal, your volume can vary. A lot.

So weigh it instead! pompom

I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

ADDITION: Multiple corrections to this recipe (mostly on the larger amounts) in the Hamelman Errata:

Page 139, Corn Bread:
Several  changes:

Under POOLISH in the U.S. column, the correct weight for Yeast is .01 lb, and the correct weight for TOTAL is 10.01 lb

Under POOLISH in the Metric column, the correct weight for Yeast is .005 kg, and the correct weight for TOTAL is 5.005 kg

Under FINAL DOUGH in the U.S. column, the correct weight for the Yeast is .29 lb, and the correct weight for POOLISH is 10.01 lb

Under FINAL DOUGH in the Metric column, the correct weight for the Yeast is .145 kg, and the correct weight for POOLISH is 5.005 kg

I agree: Weighing is always better than measuring by volume ...
