Molasses and cornmeal distinguish this dark, sweet New England-style classic.
Cornmeal and 1/2 cup water should be combined in a small saucepan.
Over medium heat, bring to a boil while stirring occasionally.
Cook for 5 minutes or until mixture thickens.
Remove from heat and stir in molasses and butter (or margarine).
Allow to lukewarm.
Mix yeast with 1/2 cup warm water in a small mixing bowl.
Let stand for about 10 minutes or until creamy.
