ISO - Anadama Bread Recipe

When we were young we used to visit our grandparents in the central Vt. mountains near Norwich Military Academy. I specifically remember a homemade bread, I think it was called amadama bread. I believe it was made with cornmeal flour and molasses. It may be American Indian or French Canadian in origin. I remember eating it hot with maple butter on it. It also made great French toast. Does anyone know anything or have a recipe. It would be much appreciated . mysterychef

I remember it well. This bread was around during the early Colonial days.

The kitchens at Williamsburg, Plimouth Plantation and Strurbridge Village in Massachusetts make the bread in their Colonial Kitchens.

I was there to greet the Pilgrims. I am the one who laid out the red carpeted stone.

Thanks for all the help. I am not a baker per say. I now have time to try things I normally didn't have time for. I will remember to use '' King Arthur's'' Flour recipe resources. Many years ago I visited them in Vt. and was very impressed with the company and it's customer servce. Being from Vt. My grand mother would only use ''K.A.F.''mysterychef
