Blue Corncob Bread


Few things are as delicious as a warm, freshly made blue corncob bread—especially on a cold fall day when served with a bowl of soup or stew. But these are just as good for breakfast with jams or jellies. You can purchase cornstick pans in many specialty cooking stores, or you can use a round cast-iron skillet or round cake pan.
