I love homemade breads (fresh, warm and delicious – what’s not to love…) but rarely find the time to make them – this golden microwave corn bread to SO quick and easy to make and works really well as a braai or grilled meat side dish with some colourful salads!
We celebrate Heritage Day in South Africa tomorrow. It falls on a Monday this year – so we are in the middle of a glorious long weekend here with Joburg really showing off in the weather department. What better way than to celebrate with a braai and corn bread…
