Peter ThomasPeter Thomas describes himself as living "near Johannesburg in South Africa, am 53 years old and my interests include photography, web design, computers and of course, most of all, my online friends!!"

He forgot to also mention that he is passionate about food as well! This is one of his recipes.


3 cups white flour
5 teaspoons white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
5g instant dried yeast (or half a packet)
½ cup fresh yellow sweetcorn (cut off the cob)
1 cup of lukewarm water

  • Mix all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl, until it forms a dough, taking care to add the water slowly at the end so it doesn't become too wet. Knead for only one minute.
  • Put into a greased 20cm (8") loaf tin and leave in a warm place covered with a damp tea towel for about 1 hour, or until double in size.
  • Then place in a preheated oven (180ºC) for about 1 hour, or until golden brown.

Makes 1 loaf
