Cornmeal Batter

Hi all,

I made some cornbread last night, and have quite a bit of batter leftover, which I stored in the refrigerator in a bowl with a lid on it. I'm thinking it should still be good, but wanted to ask for advice. I'm not too experienced with cornmeal. I did add eggs to the mix.

Easily good for 1 to 2 days... I store a batch or two of pasta dough (made with eggs) in a 40 fridge and it easily lasts 2 days.

The leavener may not be able to do its thing after X number of hours.

The batter is still good in the sense it has not soured/gone bad. But it is not good for cornbread any more. The leavening has been spent/used up.

You can make hoe cakes, though!

If the recipe called for double-acting baking powder it should be ok if it contains baking soda then it will be too pooped to pop.

Bake it off and see what happens you don't have much to lose.

I was going to mention double acting baking powder. It will lose some of its oomph. The double part is that some of it works when it gets wet and some of it works when it gets heated.

Just a shot in the dark idea here.

If you have some hot dogs and wooden skewers, you could put the
dog on the stick (from end to end) Roll the dog in some all purpose flour and then dip it in the batter.

You'll need to have a deep fryer going with hot oil at 350 F or so to place the dog into.

You may get some decent corn dogs from this.

As long as you don't over bake it, cornmeal takes well to freezing or even refrigerating, so just use it all up. You can also cook it like pancakes and slather it with butter.

I too like the idea of corn dogs, or with kielbasa, or even chunks of ring bologna. If you don't have a deep fryer, a chicken frying pan, or duth oven, or even a large wok will hold enough oil to fry the corn dogs. You can wrap the sausage in a chrese slice, secured with a toothpick, then coat with batter and immerse in the hot oil.

Another option is to add some cornstarch, and a little more baking powder and use the batter to make onion rings.

Just a thought.
