Easy, Sweet Cornbread Muffins

Sweet Cornbread Muffins
My aunt Crystal is the queen of classic foods made easy, and this is her recipe for delicious cornbread muffins that are soft, not starchy and deliciously sweet!  Best of all, this recipe is super simple to toss together and it feeds a crowd! Take a look:


  • 1 box of yellow cake mix (plus ingredients called for on the box)
  • 2 boxes of Jiffy corn bread mix (plus ingredients called for on the box)


  1. Preheat oven to 350˚. Line 2 muffin pans with cupcake liners, or lightly grease 2 9×13 casserole pans with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the cake mix according to package directions, then set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the 2 boxes of cornbread mix according to package directions, then add it to the cake mix bowl. Mix well.
  4. Distribute batter into muffin tins or cake pans.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until cooked through- for approximately the same amount of time mentioned on the cake mix box, depending on what method you are making. Muffins take about 15 minutes or so and the cake takes longer.
  6. Serve and enjoy!

    Gasp! I was planning to make cornbread on Sunday and was just wondering where my recipe ran off to. And now I see this! Thank you!!!!

    Two cornbread recipes in one day! But this one looks even better because I don't have to convert it to muffins and guess at the baking time. Also, anything with honey makes me happy. Thanks for sharing!

    Oooh, this looks so good! Saw on the TipJunkie blog conference post that you were in the Phx area, and wanted to pop by and say "hi"! We just moved here a few months ago and love it (though what's up with the rain?!).
