try it soon, I wanted to create something similar but savory.
This would of course be a lovely addition to my sofa dinner party this coming

Add the stock, sherry, all of the herbs, salt, and dried mushrooms to a large stock pot.
Cover and bring to a boil. Once its boiling, turn the heat o , keep the pot covered, and
let the mushrooms hydrate to become soft, about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl combine the polenta, potato our, baking soda, sugar
and cheese.
Once the porcini mushrooms are soft, uncover and bring the mixture to a boil once
again. Once its boiling, add the Sauted Sherry Mushrooms and turn the heat o .
Now very slowly and gradually, add the polenta mixture in a steady stream, constantly
stirring. Add the butter and stir only until you have a thick, creamy mixture.
Pour the mixture into a 9 X 13 X 3-inch baking dish and use a at-bottomed spatula to
smooth the top.
Bake in the preheated oven until the top is golden brown, about 50 minutes to 1 hour.
Remove the pan from the oven and let it sit on a cooling rack for at least 45 minutes
before serving. (Cover it with foil after the rst 15 minutes.)

Timeline:
Up to 1 day and at least 30 before making the polenta: Make the Sauted Sherry
Mushrooms.
About 1-1/2 hours ahead: Hydrate the porcini mushrooms.
1 hour ahead: Mix the polenta and begin baking.
You can make this 1 day ahead. Let it cool completely and cover it tightly before refrigerating
overnight. Before serving, bring the cake to room temperature, and warm it in a 375 degree F
oven, just until its hot all the way through, about 20 minutes.
Print recipe.
Note:
If you cut and serve this soon after baking it, it will be a much looser consistency than the
cake you see above. Either way, its delicious!
If you want to take one extra step, this is also fabulous if you slice it once its very rm
(the next day), and then fry the slices in olive oil it adds an additional crust.

This looks crazy good! I love the combination of polenta and mushrooms and it
would add variety to our dinner table if I made it as a cake:) Perfect for a chilly night.

We can consider this our chilly season here in SoCal, right?

Hi,
Just wondering if there is anything I could substitute for potato our?
Thanks!

Hi Hannah, if you dont have an issue with gluten, all purpose our would be
great. Otherwise you could use corn our (which might make more of an
overall corn bread-ish cake), but would still be yummy.

Cheers!
