Sweet Easy Cornbread

I can promise you this will be your new favorite cornbread! Not just because its crazy easy to make but because it is sooo good! This easy cornbread recipe is fluffy, moist and has a delicious sweet flavor. Perfect for feeding a crowd or cozying up with a bowl of chili on a busy weeknight.

I like to call recipes like this semi homemade. It will taste homemade, you’re baking at home but using two box mixes to make it so all the complicated measuring is taken out. It’s basically fail-proof.

To make this semi-homemade cornbread combine a box of jiffy and a box of your favorite yellow cake mix.

eggs, milk, oil water all ingredients for cornbread


On the back of each box is a list of ingredients you need to make that mix. In a large bowl pour in both mixes. Add the ingredients listed on the back of each box. This usually includes

  • eggs
  • milk
  • oil
  • water

Mix throughly all the ingredients until it is a smooth batter.

Because we combined to mixes you will have a lot of batter! Use a cake sheet pan to bake. Make sure you lightly spray it with a non-stick spray.

Bake your cornbread until it is golden brown, about 30 minutes. You can see how perfectly soft and fluffy it is in this photo!

    There! I bake cornbread by a bit another recipe, it isn’t sweet. I usually bake it when I get bored with rye or cereal bread. By the way, I have never tried sweet cornbread with honey or to eat it as a side dish… I guess, I will try something new. Anyway, cornbread is a good idea, both sweet and unsweetened. Thank you for the recipe! Now I want to try your Smoked Chili. Love your blog, kkep it up.
