WOW! This is the first timed I've tried cornsticks. Had them a lot when I was a kid, but I guess they went 'out of vogue'? Anyway, they turned out pretty as well as easy to prepare AND tasty! Thanks SouthernBelle,for sharing this recipe! Hubby LOVED them - and ate 3 as well as reminding me to be sure and wrap up the rest!!!!!

My husband made these DELICIOUS sticks this evening in a recently purchased Griswold cornstick cast iron pan. We can't say enough about them! He followed the recipe exactly & they came out perfectly, firm but not hard. The cayenne added just the right touch.....wonderful aftertaste without too much heat. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe!
