Corn Sticks or Muffins

We wrap up the year of Modern Family Cookbook menus with this recipe. Grab some nice butter and molasses to serve on top. Heating the pans beforehand really gives a nice texture to the finished product. So, give it a try and give the Jiffy folks a day off. It really is a satisfying thing to make corn sticks from scratch.

Corn Sticks or Muffins

3 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
¾ teaspoon salt
¾ cup yellow or white corn meal
1 egg
1 cup milk
