Baked Polenta

I've made this a couple of times now.
It's easy to lob in the oven whilst pressure-cooking something to accompany it, and avoids the traditional constant stirring on the hob of most polenta recipes.

This method of cooking polenta comes via Joy the Baker.

  • 4 cups Water
  • 1 cup Polenta
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp Salt - use less if your butter is salted, more if unsalted.
  • 4 tbsp Butter
  • grated Parmesan
Heat oven to 180C
Dump polenta, water and salt into a baking dish and vaguely stir together with a fork.
Put the dish of polenta into the oven and bake for 45 minutes.
Take the dish out of the oven, add the butter and stir to combine as it melts.
Put the polenta back in the oven for 15 minutes
Take the dish out of the oven and stir through the grated parmesan.
Let rest for 15 minutes before serving.
