As always with our Knead the Book feature, we have five (5) copies of Fast Breads to give away this week. Enter the contest here.

These corn sticks from Fast Breads use just a little bit of flour with a higher proportion of cornmeal. so they have a crisp crust and a soft interior. The recipe is made for use in a corn stick pan, so it probably wouldn't fare well in a regular pan. If you don't have a corn stick pan, there's also a recipe in the book for standard cornbread.
