Boston Market Style Cornbread

This cornbread recipe is a Boston Market copycat. It tastes more like cake than cornbread, but because it’s called cornbread you can get away with eating cake with dinner!

Boston Market Style Cornbread

This Boston Market Cornbread copycat  is a recipe I printed off the internet many years ago. Probably around the time I discovered you could print recipes off the internet. Boy was that a great discovery! I must have printed a gazillion of them. I continuously weed out my recipe collection (or I would drown in them) and this is one of the few surviving recipes from that time period (must have been the mid 90s).

Boston Market Style Cornbread

I absolutely love Boston Market’s cornbread.

And why do I love it so much? Because it’s not really cornbread. It’s cake passed off as cornbread.

Who doesn’t like cake that can be eaten with a meal instead of after?

Boston Market Style Cornbread

These corn muffins are super sweet, buttery, and oh so delicious! They have more similar in consistency to cake than cornbread. I love them with some super spicy Five Alarm Chili.

This recipe only has 5 ingredients (plus water) so it is super easy and quick to make. It makes a huge batch, but you can freeze half of them or cut the recipe in half.

If you like really sweet cornbread, you will love this recipe 🙂

  1. I was craving BM cornbread but ours closed down.. This recipe hit the spot ! it did however make ALOT of mix, what’s your suggestion for splitting 5 eggs in half? I plan on making this for thanksgiving this year 🙂 Thanks!

  2. My husband goes to Boston Market for the cornbread. I always joked that they were tiny cakes not muffins. Turns out I was right!

    These taste very similar to Boston Market cornbread, and absolutely delicious. I like to eat them warm with a little butter. My toddler is currently devouring one.

    Recipe is perfect. No changes needed.

    Thank you so much for putting this out into the world!

  3. Wow …better than BM, definitely a lil more cakey than CBready..but I’m not complaining..these r abso fab..I only had jumbo eggs, so that’s what I used, I got a huge ammt tho..36 total..I added some pumpkin pie spice to last 6..even they r yum! TY..

  4. I make this cornbread almost every year for Thanksgiving and it’s a family favorite. I’ve tried making other cornbread recipes but I always end up coming back to this one. I try to avoid using box mix when I can, but you can’t beat the simplicity and sweetness of this cornbread. It’s like eating cake for breakfast/lunch/dinner 🙂 also it tastes very similar to BM! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Tastes nothing like Boston Market corn bread. But it is still good! I saw on another site, their recipe for BM corn bread used butter yellow cake. Worth a try next time.

    My husband would love these cornbread muffins because he likes sweet cornbread. I can make them and keep them in the freezer for him. 🙂

    Cake in form of cornbread??? How awesome does it sound?? THese muffins look terrific, and the texture seems beautiful. I need them!

    I love Boston Market! I haven’t been there is so long there…that needs to change. Their cornbread is super delicious so I’ll totally be trying this :)…if for no other reason than the fact that it’s made with cake mix!
