I've been searching for a tender, not dry corn muffin. This was as close to perfect as I have found. It was slightly more cake than muffin, a little on the sweet side. The corn flavor came through, but I would have liked it a little "cornier"... if that's even a word! It was very easy to throw together and that's a plus. I will experiment with this recipe and see if I can tweak it to perfection.

I made these recently for a chili supper and they were a hit! They are very tender and tasty with a slightly sweet taste.

Picture perfect golden muffins! And BEST tasting!! I also doubled recipe to use one regular size cake mix. Perfect for a large crowd. Followed directions exactly with no liners and had perfectly baked popout muffins. As a volunteer feild editor with Taste of Home I love recipes that are easy to put together and taste like homemade!

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.

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.
