Sweet Corn Bread Muffins Recipe

Linnea Rein of Topeka, Kansas uses two convenient mixes to create these sweet corn bread muffins. The yellow cake mix gives them a smoother texture than traditional corn bread.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:14 servings


  • 1 package (9 ounces) yellow cake mix
  • 1 package (8-1/2 ounces) corn bread/muffin mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup 2% milk
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the mixes. In a small bowl, combine the eggs, water, milk and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  • 2. Fill greased and floured muffin cups half full. Bake at 350° for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks. Serve warm. Yield: 14 muffins.

"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!"

"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."

"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."

"Can this recipe be eaten as a cake? With a little powdered sugar sprinkled on top maybe. As a young girl, I remember being served a rough textured sweet cake in a rectangular pan. It had the texture almost of cornbread and had a deep yellow color. Could this be it?"

"A tad sweet but it was expected due to the cake mix. The coworkers enjoyed them tremendously, and I would definitely make these muffins again. I doubled the recipe to compensate for the larger, regular sized box of cake mix."
