This delicious Mielie bread recipe is so quick and easy to make and has become a regular standby for braai's (BBQ) and picnics on the weekends. I found the recipe in the Sustained Energy for Kids Low GI, low fat recipe book by Gabi Steenkamp, Tanzia Merlin and Jeske Wellmann (Tafelberg) and I have adapted it to be Wheat, Gluten and Dairy Free.
