This is a variation on corn bread but made in a cast-iron mold for corn. If you don’t have one, another cast-iron mold pan or even a muffin pan will do but you may have to adjust the cooking time, so watch carefully near the end of cooking.
Thanks to The Best of FamilyFun Cooking and Parties cookbook for this great recipe. Find the book at Amazon.com. It’s a great all-purpose book for cooking with kids.
Serves up 21 corn sticks. Do we have to mention that kids love them?!
You will need:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup cornmeal
2 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ cup brown sugar
¾ cup milk
½ plain yogurt
1 egg, lightly beaten
¼ butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 425° F and spray a cast-iron corn baking mold.
In a large bowl, mix the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and brown sugar.
In a separate bowl, whisk the milk, egg, yogurt, and melted butter together. Gradually add this mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Don’t over-mix it!
Preheat the cast-iron mold in the oven and spray with cooking spray. Pour the batter into the mold and bake for 15-20 minutes, until the top is golden and lightly browned.
