This yellow cake mix cornbread is a favorite way to make cornbread. If you love a sweet cornbread you will love this recipe.


  • Jiffy corn muffin mix
  • Yellow cake mix
  • Eggs
  • Water and milk
  • Butter
  • Honey

Some people have asked me what type of cake mix do you use?

You can use Duncan Hines, Betty Crocker or even a homemade recipe. Just make sure if you buy a cake mix that it has pudding in it.
This cornbread is so moist it is seriously so delicious.

Store any leftover cornbread in an airtight container at room temperature.

IF you do not find a Jiffy Cake Mix I found this Homemade Jiffy Cake Mix Alternative from Miss Vickie that works the same.

  • One and a half cup of ALL PURPOSE Flour
  • Two tablespoon Baking Powder
  • One tablespoon Salt
  • One to two cups of Sugar
  • Whisk all ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to one month, or use right away to make a Jiffy yellow cake.
  • This mix equals 1 box of store bought Jiffy Yellow Cake Mix, which is the small box.

This is a great side dish for fall and winter to serve with a hearty stew, soup, or chili.  Once you make this recipe for cornbread you will not make it any other way.
