Ingredients

1 cup yellow cornmeal

1 teaspoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup well-shaken buttermilk

1 large egg

4 oz coarsely grated extra-sharp Cheddar (1 cup)

1/4 cup finely chopped scallion (white and pale green parts only)

1 tablespoon finely chopped drained pickled jalapenos -- (1 to 2)

1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted

Directions

Special equipment: 2 well-seasoned cast-iron corn stick pans, each with 7 (5- by 1 1/2-inch) molds or a well-seasoned 9-inch cast-iron skillet

Preheat oven to 425F. Heat pans in middle of oven 10 minutes.

Whisk together cornmeal, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk together buttermilk and egg in another bowl and add cornmeal mixture with Cheddar, scallion, jalapenos, and 2 tablespoons butter, stirring, until just combined.

Remove pans from oven and divide remaining 2 tablespoons butter among corn stick molds. Quickly divide batter among molds (about 3 tablespoons each) and bake until a tester comes out clean and tops are golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool corn sticks in pans 3 to 5 minutes before removing from molds. Serve warm.

Cooks' note:
If using a cast-iron skillet, pour all of batter into it and bake 15 to 20 minutes.
