Copycat Boston Market Cornbread

Hands down. this is my favorite way to make cornbread. The Boston Market Cornbread is a sweet cornbread that always gets eaten up when it is served. The first time I brought this to a family dinner it was eaten up in a hot minute.

This recipe is not from scratch. Over the years I have never been able to recreate this unique flavor from scratch. Boxed mixes provide the base of this recipe.

For this recipe, Jiffy cornbread and cake mix are used. I have found Jiffy mix to be available at most grocery stores. I always pick up a few extra during the holidays as they are always on sale then.

Is Boston Market Cornbread Gluten Free?

It is not gluten free. You can make gluten-free cornbread, but this is not the recipe you should use, the golden cake mix contains flour.

Ingredients for Boston Market Cornbread.

How to Make Boston Market Cornbread

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix both boxes according to package directions and combine the batters in a large bowl.
  3. Alternatively, you can place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix until combined.
  4. Fill an 8 x 8-inch prepared baking dish with the batter.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown. You can test for doneness by inserting a toothpick to the center of the cornbread, and if it comes out clean, it is done. If not, cook for an additional 2 to 3 minutes and test again.

  • Use 2 boxes Jiffy mix cornbread mix and 1 box (15.25 ounces) yellow cake mix.
  • There may be additional ingredients needed. Check the yellow cake mix package.
  • Use the deepest pan that you have and fill the pan only 3/4 of the way full. If you do not do this, it may over-fill the pan.
  • You may also want to pour the batter into mini loaf pans for a more authentic restaurant experience. You could also pour the batter into cupcake pans or muffin pans.

This makes sweet cornbread with a cake-like texture. If you have never tried this, it is lighter and sweeter than typical southern cornbread.

    Best ever, easy. I added 1/4 cup of honey to each batch. Of course this is my own choice.
    Made mini muffins for a birthday celebration as they were serving Chili. Times the batch by 4 and got about 160 mini muffins.

    It tastes just like Boston Market I am going to try making it again for the second time tonight. I lost the first recipe highly recommend. I also recommend buying the book copycat.

    I made this with yellow cake mix & 2 jiffy – it turned out Great, however, it was not really as “sweet” as Boston Market’s – is there any way to make it sweeter without ruining it? I don’t think adding sugar is the answer……. but I just don’t know

  4. Amy

    Doesn’t Boston Market’s version have actual corn chunks in it? Just trying to figure out how to get a more accurate version, if possible. Any ideas?? I probably shouldn’t use cupcake liners either right, in order to get the edges crispy? do I need to change the cooking time if I’m doing cupcake size versus baking a whole sheet?

      • Stephanie

        If you are using Jiffy mix (cake and cornbread) 1 box of each. IF you are using regular boxed cake mix it’s 1 box of cake mix, and 2 boxes of jiffy corn bread mix.

    I’ve never had anything Boston Market. I’m just looking for a good corn bread recipe after eating at a small diner in South Carolina. Thanks Stephanie for all the great recipes.

  6. Alix Winslow

    Can you tell me the ounces in a box of Jiffy Mix Cornbread Mix and the box of Jiffy Mix Yellow Cake Mix I’ve never really cooked so am pretty ignorant but I want to make this. My friends
    will faint when I serve it.

  7. Walter

    This was a disaster. Cornbread stuck to the pan. Ended up scraping it up out of the pan in little pcs. I’ve been making cornbread for years. Nothing like this ever happened. The Jiffy cake mix box said to line the pan with wax paper. I’ll have to try that next time.

  8. Shelby Cindy Welinder

    Made them today but did not have yellowcake mix
    So I subsuted it with yellow mix. In fudge marble from ducan Hinz

    They still tasted like corn muffins

  9. Maureen Harrison

    I used to make the cornbread for Boston Market. This is good but doesn’t taste anything like the real thing; it is much too cake-like. I will try making it with half a box of cake mix and 2 boxes of Jiffy next time.
