Help! Corn flour (ground maize) and polenta and corn bread

chunkycheese | Mar 2, 2009 02:45 AM

Please note that: Corn meal is not something readily available outside the USA when answering this question.

I would like to make cornbread and any other recipes...... what subsitute should I use for Cornmeal? I can get fine yellow Corn flour or course yellow polenta? Any good?How is polenta cooked i.e. like cous cous? This is a little confusing for the British as these flours are not basics in our cooking?

When I lived in the UK I could get Masa Harina for tortillas and tamalas but Germany!? Lacking in a few basics like dark brown sugar and translation can be a problem too ..... but were striding on!

Thanks for any advice
