HELP! My corn sticks are stuck
I finally bought a Lodge preseasoned cast iron corn stick pan - the one that shapes the sticks into ears of corn. I brushed it with oil and preheated the pan, but my sticks stuck. Any ideas how to remedy the situation? I never have this problem when I make cornbread in my cast iron frying pan.
This comes from Hints from Heloise:
To prevent corn sticks from sticking:
-Grease the pan.
-Dust it with cornmeal.
-Place in oven or under broiler until cornmeal is browned.
-Add batter to pan and cook normally.
-Finished corn sticks should flip out with a knife and not stick.
Link to original Heloise article:
Preseasoned cast iron usually needs more seasoning. Or so I am told, since I haven't bought any. Just have the old fashioned stuff.
Also when I make cornbread I get the pan screaming hot while I'm making the batter. Pull it out of the oven, add the fat to coat, pour in batter and bake.
