Yield: Makes 1½ dozen cornsticks


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • 1½ teaspoon sugar
  • 1 cup buttermilk or milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 eggs, lightly be eaten
  • Bacon fat


  • Cast-iron corn stick mold


Preheat the oven to 400°.

In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. Stir in the buttermilk, butter, and eggs.

Generously great the corn stick mold with bacon fat and place in the oven for 5 minutes, or until smoking.

Removed the mold from the oven and spoon batter into each mold until one-third full. Return the mold to the oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden. Remove the cornsticks, regrease the mold with bacon fat and repeat until all of the batter is used.

    That's an odd number of corn sticks that recipe makes .... the corn pan holds space for seven. Times two that's 14 and four little sicks left!
