Corn Bread

I have written about my search for the perfect cornbread before. I have tried many, many recipes and never been happy with the results.

It occurred to me today to think about all of the cornbread I REALLY liked and see if I could find the recipe. Well, as bad as it is, the corn bread I really like comes from Boston Market. So I Googled it and came up with a recipe clone that I think I will be making tonight after Nate goes to sleep. Here it is:


  • 2 (8 1/2 ounce) boxes Jiffy corn muffin mix
  • 1 (18 ounce) box butter recipe cake mix
  • 5 egg
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter (softened)
  • 15 oz can of creamed corn
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and mix all dry ingredients.
  • Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
  • Pour into greased cupcake pans or mini loaf pans.
  • Bake 30 minutes or until golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool slightly in the pan (until pulls away from side a bit).
  • Remove from pan and serve warm.
If I can get my act together I will try and take pictures and let you know tomorrow how it turned out.

This is a little more like a corn casserole muffin type recipe but I saw the cream corn in the one that you posted and thought I'd give you this recipe. I made it today and everyone really liked it.

1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
1 can (8 ounces) whole kernel corn, drained
1 can (8 ounces) cream-style corn
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 egg, beaten
1 package (8-1/2 ounces) corn bread/muffin mix
3 tablespoons sunflower kernels
In a bowl, combine the first seven ingredients; stir in corn bread mix just until moistened. Spoon into greased miniature muffin cups. Sprinkle with sunflower kernels. Bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until muffins test done. Cool for 2 minutes before removing from pans to a wire rack. Serve warm. Yield: 3-1/2 dozen mini muffins.

(notes: I used regular onions instead of green onions simply b/c I did not have them on hand. Nor did I sprinkle sunflower seeds for the same reason).
