225g butter (I use Vitalite; a stable, dairy free margarine. don't use Pure and don't use oil.)
225g plain flour sifted
225g polenta grains  (fine works better imho)
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
125g caster sugar
2 large or 3 small eggs
475ml full fat milk (I used half fat, still works lol)

preheat oven to 180.c or gas 5

put the butter/fat into a 23cm square or round baking tin and put in the oven to melt
while butter melting put the flour polenta salt sugar and baking powder into a large bowl and make a well in the centre break in the eggs and add the milk and the melted butter/fat
mix well until all combined but will need to do this quickly or the butter/fat will harden
pour the mix back into the tin and bake for 30-40 mins until well risen and golden brown

the bread will sink a little after cooking
can be eaten hot or cold. I like it hot form the oven with a little more marge on the top. it's much like a corn scone.
