--------  ------------  --------------------------------
     1/4  Cup           Cornmeal
     3/4  Cup           Boiling Water
     1/2  Cup           Mashed Potatoes
     2/3  Package       Active Dry Yeast
   1 1/4  Cups          Bread Flour
   1      Cup           Rye Flour
   1      Tablespoon    Sugar
     3/4  Teaspoon      Salt
     1/3  Teaspoon      Caraway Seeds
   1      Tablespoon    Vegetable Oil
     1/4  Cup           Water, Warm

1)  Mix all of the the boiling water with the cornmeal in a small bowl and mix well so that there are no more lumps.  Stir in the caraway seeds.  Allow to cool.

2)  Make the mashed potatoes (do not add salt or other flavourings) and allow to cool.

3)  Mix the yeast with the warm water in a large bowl.  Stir in the sugar and allow to stand for about 5 minutes (or more).

4)  Mix the mashed potatoes and corn meal mush together until well blended and no lumps remain.  Make sure the mixture is cool enough before adding it to the yeast mixture.

5)  Add the salt, vegetable oil and the corn meal and potato mixture, and mix well with a mixer.

6)  Add the rye flour and mix very well.  Put the dough hooks on the mixer if you haven't already done so.

7)  Add the bread flour and knead with the dough hooks for at least 10 minutes.

8)  Grease a bread pan with butter.  Using the dough hooks, scrape the bread batter into the bread pan.  Dip a large tablespoon into water and use the back of it to smooth the batter and press it into the pan.  You will need to keep the tablespoon wet or the dough will stick to it.  You can also wet your hands and use them to mould the dough.

9)  Put the bread pan in a warm place and allow the dough to rise until nearly doubled.

10)  Heat the oven to 200 ° C (400° F) and bake the bread for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the dough sounds hollow when tapped.  Remove the bread from the oven and from the bread pan and allow it to cool on a wire rack.  Bread improves in flavor with age.

NOTES : This bread got its name from a guest who grabbed the last piece at a party, did a little dance and exclaimed:  "It's mine! Mine, mine, mine!".
