Cornbread Sticks

READY IN: 35mins
SERVES: 12-15




  • Set oven to 400°F.
  • Coat cast-iron stick molds liberally with oil.
  • In a bowl, mix together cornmeal, flour, dark sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda.
  • In another bowl whisk together buttermilk, melted butter and egg; add into the dry ingredients.
  • Add in the chopped bell pepper and shredded cheddar cheese; mix to combine (add in more buttermilk if needed to create a pourable consistency).
  • Place the oiled cast-iron molds in the oven for about 5 minutes (make certain to have the cornmeal batter ready to pour into the hot molds after 5 minutes).
  • Carefully remove the hot molds from oven and evenly divide/fill the batter between each mold.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes, or until the corn sticks test done (it might take more or less time depending on the size of molds).
  • Using a sharp knife, gently lift out the sticks from the molds.
