Boston Market Style Cornbread

Sharing is caring!

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 copycatΒ  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?

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 πŸ™‚

  1. 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!

  2. 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..

  3. 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 πŸ™‚ also it tastes very similar to BM! Thanks for sharing!

  4. 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.

  5. 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!

  6. I live for some sweet cornbread!!!! You are 100% right about Boston Market’s cornbread being little cakes passed off as a side dish! And I love them! I can’t wait to try these. Pinned. (Well truthfully they were pinned several minutes ago as soon as I read “Boston Market cornbread”.)

  7. I used to go to Boston Market a lot before my kids were born, and I always ordered the cornbread! Yours turned out perfectly, and I’ll bet it’s even better. πŸ™‚ Have a great weekend, Christin!

  8. Oh my goodness, I haven’t had it in over a decade but I absolutely loved it too! I will be trying this with my next soup recipe! Thank you for sharing!

  9. This cornbread looks fantastic Christin! I have never tried the Boston Market ones but I know that I would love this – cake-like cornbread that is sweet and buttery sounds like a winner to me πŸ™‚

  10. Love love love cornbread and this looks so yummy!
    PS just started following you on twitter. πŸ™‚

  11. I’ve always loved their cornbread, mostly because it’s essentially cake. You nailed it on the head with this recipe with cake mix! I can’t wait to make this for my brother; we love Boston Market!

  12. Christin, this recipe is so interesting…cake mix and corn muffin mix…the texture looks fabulous, light and airy…thanks for sharing it.
