Reviews for Sweet Corn Bread Muffins
"My family loved these muffins! Nice crunchy crust on top and sweet, delicious taste. I will make these again!!"
"PLEASE read carefully. A full box of DH Premium Extra Moist 19+ oz cake mix is NOT what you want! LOL! I'm going to try it again with the right cake mix. Can't wait!! (btw, yuck with too much yellow cake mix and eaten with beans!) Thanks for the recipe!"
"Delicious!! I've been hunting for a sweet cornbread recipe with a smoother, less-gritty texture after falling in love with the cornbread at a local restaurant. The cake mix is what makes this dish! I halved the recipe since I could tell it would make a lot. I used a cast iron mini-scone pan and the batter filled its 16 wells perfectly. I think I might have to make a second batch sooner rather than later!"
"So so good ! My teenage daughter and her friends gobbled them up ! One friend Asked that I make them for her birthday ! Will definently make these again and again."
"I've been making these for a number of years now. My family prefers a sweeter cornbread and using 2 mixes is so nice and easy. I switch off between muffins and just pouring the batter in a 8" or 9" square cake pan."
"My family loves the slightly smoother texture and sweeter taste of these corn muffins. I make them almost everytime we have chili."
"My daughter-in-law ask for these at every family gathering. I love the smoother texture to the corn bread. I often freeze some since it makes a lot."
"made these muffin for a church funtion and people have been asking for them ever since and that was two years ago"
"I'm not a big fan of the "mealy" texture the cornbread mix gives the muffins. Also you get a little confused as to if its a muffin or a cupcake."
"I know this is much after the fact, but, yes, it can be served as a cake. It is really more of a quickbread recipe. I don't know about the childhood cake, I'm not sure it's the same. Sorry no one answered your questions."
