Need cast iron corn mold advice

sudiepav | Oct 18, 2005 11:24 AM

Finally found some cast iron molds at a G-sale...the ones that are shaped like ears of corn. Last night I baked cornbread in them, but had difficulty getting them out in a corn shape. I used plenty of Crisco, and they washed easily, so I don't think the shortening was a problem. I tried getting them out (upending, prying w/ a knife, etc.) but they came out in sort of oblongs...you had to squint hard to imagine a corn shape. What's the problem? DH suggested I bake them a little longer next time, but I hesitate to do that, as cornbread gets majorly dry w/ even a minute too long in the oven. The recipe I used had corn kernels and jalapenos in it...maybe too many added ingredients? Who does this well? TIA
