Boston Market Style Cornbread

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 Recipe

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).

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.

5 Ingredients

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.

  • 2 boxes Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix
  • 1 box butter flavored cake mix (I use Betty Crocker or Duncan Hines). If you can’t find butter-flavored, just use yellow cake mix.
  • Eggs
  • Milk
  • Butter

    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”.)

    Isn’t corn bread just the best thing ever?! I love how it’s a little bit sweet, but not too sweet! Perfect side to chilly or a hearty soup and salad! YUM! Your recipe looks so tasty! Hope that you have a great weekend!

    I only go to Boston Market for the cornbread, plus I just love cornbread! Wish I had some now, with a big smear of softened butter.
