Frontier Corn Dodgers Recipe.

Corn dodgers were famous during pioneer life because they were very versatile and easy to carry around. You can eat them as a side to your meals or munch on them as a snack when you get hungry.

They’re relatively small, so pioneers would keep these in their pockets.


2 Cups (coarse) yellow cornmeal
2 Tablespoons butter [or margarine]
1/2 Teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon sugar
2 Cups whole milk
1 Teaspoon baking powder

  • Preheat oven to 400° F.
  • Cook cornmeal in a saucepan with butter, salt, sugar and milk until the mixture boils.
  • Turn off the heat, cover, and let stand for 5 minutes. 
  • Add baking powder and stir.
  • Spoon the mix onto the Baking Pan in heaping tablespoon-size balls, then bake for 10 to 15 minutes. 
  • They are done when slightly brown around the edges.
