  1. These are awesome! Hubby couldn't get enough me either! Its great with honey on top too


  1. I made these for a friend who is used to the boxed cornbread mix. He loved them! I did make one change - didn't have cornmeal so used polenta. I think I'm going to make them that way all the time. Extra crunch!! My friend went home with the bag of leftovers. (I kept a couple, of course!)
  2. My husband and declared these the BEST and most authentic cornbread sticks he's found yet. And being raised in Texas that's a great review as we've tried a LOT of cornbread stick recipes and he's not been happy until now. Not sweet, but that crunchy cornbread texture that goes so well with soups and stews. I'm willing to bet this is the last recipe we'll try
  3. This was an excellent recipe. I will be using this from now on. Thanks for posting.
  4. 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!!!!!
  5. 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!


I am 30 years old. I am married and have a wonderful family. My hubbie is the greatest. We have a 2 1/2 year old little girl. Her name is Lizzie Belle. I have pics if anyone wants to see. I work for a bank in Brandon, MS. My hubbie is a police officer in Jackson. I have a great cookbook that is called "Any Blonde Can Cook". It is awesome. I love to cook...when I have the time. My family keeps me pretty busy though. I enjoy reading books, going to the movies, traveling, spending time with my family, cooking, playing with Lizzie Belle, tanning, and getting my nails done.
