I love cornbread! It might just be a southern thing but give me a plate of cornbread, white beans, and cabbage and I'm golden. ;) My mom's recipe for cornbread has not been working out for me. It turns out for her every time but for me it always ends up crumbly and dry. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. My guess is not using her magical 30+ year old iron skillet. Clearly that thing has to have some kind of magical cooking powers. ;) Since I kept having this cornbread problem I was on the search for yummy moist cornbread until I found this recipe and it is a big two thumbs UP. It is so moist and has the texture of a cake but tastes like sweet cornbread. So good! If you like sweet cornbread it is definitely a recipe I recommend you giving a try. Around the web this recipe has also been known as Boston Market Cornbread as apparently it tastes like how Boston Market makes their cornbread. I have never ate Boston Market cornbread so I can't attest to that. If you have and you give this recipe a try let me know how it compares.
2 boxes Jiffy muffin mix
1 box Duncan Hines Butter Golden cake mix
***You can substitute the butter golden cake mix for just yellow cake mix but it might end up sweeter and taste more like cake rather than cornbread. The butter golden from Duncan Hines will give you the best cake-like but still taste like corebread recipe.***
You Will Need:
1/2 cup water
2/3 cup milk
5 large eggs
7 tbsp softened butter
2 pkgs of muffin mix
1 pkg of cake mix
Mix muffin mix and cake mix according to their directions or use the "You will need" directions above (which is all the ingredients from the boxes listed together for you). It can be mixed all in one bowl together so don't worry about mixing each package separately. Combine and place into a 9x13 dish. Cook on 350 for approximately 30 minutes. If your fork comes out clean (just like baking a cake), it's done.
I have a few Monday Munchies I want to get up in the upcoming weeks. I'm hoping to do more recipes this year since I only did a handful in 2012. Cooking isn't my fave thing to do (I'll be honest) but I do love me a good recipe. :)
