Boston Market Style Cornbread

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?

 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. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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”.)

  4. 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. 🙂 Have a great weekend, Christin!

  5. 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 🙂

  6. 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!

  7. Christin, this recipe is so interesting…cake mix and corn muffin mix…the texture looks fabulous, light and airy…thanks for sharing it.
    Hope you are having a great week 😀
