Boston Market Cornbread

April 4, 2014Teresa

Boston Market Cornbread is absolutely sensational! This copycat recipe is the best I’ve already tried and so close to the original recipe. I made a batch of Boston Market Cornbread a few weeks ago. It was so scrumptious I didn’t want to stop eating it. No kidding. I should have stashed most of it in the freezer and got it out of sight. But, instead, the cornbread just sat there on the counter staring back at me every time I walked by. So I kept eating piece after piece after piece! Boston Market Cornbread is so over-the-top in flavor that I can’t wait to make it again!

I have no idea if this is Boston Market’s real cornbread recipe or not. But it sure does rival the Boston Market Cornbread recipe in taste and texture, that’s for sure. In my opinion, it is one of the tastiest most delectable cornbread recipes I’ve ever eaten. I mean, you will salivate over this recipe. Seriously.

Boston Market Cornbread is sweet and tastes much like my Longfellow’s Wayside Inn Corn Muffins and Honey Buttermilk Cornbread. But it is so much quicker and easier to make. It uses only five ingredients. Yes, it is VERY EASY! It’s the perfect side dish for company and holidays too. It’s so irresistible everyone always raves over it.

I’m not going to sell you a bill of goods, here. The recipe can in no way be considered healthy, because it uses two boxes of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix and a box of Duncan Hines Butter Recipe Golden Cake Mix. Both processed foods with all kinds of fillers.

But it is simple and easy to whip up. And, you can serve this with just about anything, including soups, salads, main dishes, Tex-Mex entrees or otherwise. I served Boston Market Cornbread with Chicken and Dumpling Casserole with Veggies  and we sure enjoyed it.

If you’re looking for a super-fast cornbread recipe to make, then this is it! It is also one of the best cornbread recipes you’ll ever sink your teeth into. You be the judge of whether or not it is as good (or even better) than Boston Market’s cornbread. 🙂 We sure love it.

I initially made this recipe in April 2014. Unfortunately, my pictures were really not as good as I would have liked. I recently remade this recipe (April 2019) for our Friday night care group. Everyone loved this amazing recipe. I served it with Herbed Beef Stew and Orange Poppy Seed Cake. Everyone had seconds and thirds!

Seriously, this is the BEST copycat recipe for Boston Market Cornbread I’ve ever eaten. It really tastes like the real thing. I hope you give it a try.

In a large mixing bowl, place butter recipe golden cake mix.

(You can’t use regular cake mix as they all have pudding in the batter and the recipe comes out too cake-like and does not have the texture of cornbread).

Add two boxes of Jiffy corn muffin mix, eggs, oil and milk.

    Our rural grocery store quit carrying Jiffy Yellow Cake mix. I was thrilled to find your recipe using Duncan Hines Butter Recipe Yellow Cake mix. Can’t wait to start making Boston Market corn bread again. Many thanks!

      Hi, Cindy. I think this recipe is just awesome – and so close to Boston Market’s cornbread. I should have made it in the individual loaves since I have one of those large pans. But I forgot. Anyway, no matter what kind of pan you bake it in, the taste is wonderful. Hope you enjoy it.

    I’m always looking for a good corn bread recipe because the one I have (with honey) falls apart too easily but this recipe contains too many unhealthy ingredients. (Box stuff, canola oil)….I will not be making this for fear of liking it too much when it’s so bad for you. Thanks anyway…but if you come up with a “home-made” one with healthy ingredients, I will be waiting. Thank you…June S.

    Teresa,

    This Boston Market cornbread sounds amazing. I knew their cornbread was very sweet, but I never thought about using cake mix.

    I am stopping by to get a few of your cornbread recipes for my biscuits and cornbread roundup tomorrow.
    Thanks and have a great Sunday!

    This looks delicious. My daughter’s Dance Team is having a bake sale and I understand cornbread is a good seller. Does the cornbread have a sweet taste or is there even a slight taste that it contains cake mix. I found your website by accident and really thank you for all the wonderful recipes. In fact, I have chosen several that I will be making for the bake sale.

    1. Teresa

      June 22, 2014 at 8:59 pm

      The cornbread definitely has a sweet taste as a result of the cake mix. I hope it’s a great seller for your bake sale, Bonnie. I loved the taste of this recipe when I made it. I’m so glad you enjoy the website and hope you try out many of the recipes for your bake sale! Thanks for stopping by.
