The Easiest Sweet Cornbread

This cornbread is so good, you’d never guess it was so easy! If you’ve ever been to a restaurant called Tippins (as far as I know, there’s one in Kansas City, Tulsa, and Dallas) and had their delicious sweet cornbread, this recipe tastes a lot like that. It’s great with chili or just on its own, warm and served with honey butter.

A friend had told me about this cornbread recipe after I talked about how good the Tippins cornbread was. And when I made this for a potluck, everyone wanted the recipe. They couldn’t believe how easy it was. It’s made with a blend of cornbread mix and cake mix. I typically like to make things from scratch, but I do like to make this every so often. If you’re not crazy about baking with mixes, this recipe may not be for you. But it is really, really good, so you might want to make an exception and try this out!

The Easiest Sweet Cornbread with Honey Butter

  • Servings: 16
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Makes a 9×13″ pan

1 (8.5-ounce) box Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix
1 (9-ounce) box Jiffy Golden Yellow Cake Mix
2 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup water

Preheat oven to 350˚F. Grease and flour a 9×13″ baking pan or line with parchment paper; set aside.

In large bowl, blend the dry Corn Muffin Mix and Golden Yellow Cake Mix. Add the eggs, milk, and water, blending everything well. Beat mixture for 2 to 3 minutes.

Add the batter to your prepared pan and bake at 350˚F for 20 to 22 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven, cool for 10 minutes, then cut into squares and serve. NOTE: You can make cornbread muffins with this batter if you prefer—baking time will be about 15 minutes.

This cornbread tastes really good with honey butter! (see recipe below)
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
3 Tablespoons honey

Mix softened butter and honey until well-blended; spoon into a small serving dish and serve with cornbread.

      A worker at Tippins in KC once told us to us 2 boxes of jiffy corn bread mix and 1 box jiffy yellow cake mix back the jiffy by directions and the cake mix by directions and mix them up well and add honey to the batter. So good.

      Hi Susan–You could probably sub another cornbread if there’s one that works for you. Yes, sweet cornbread is so good! 🙂

    Do you think I could sub a different cake mix? I’ve moved to the UK and can’t get any of the Jiffy brand. Although I was able to find the corn bread on Amazon!

      Sure, Collen, you could substitute the same amount of any yellow cake mix-just make sure it’s the same amount-I think the Jiffy mix just makes 1 layer of a 9″ round cake, so that might be half the amount of a regular cake mix.
