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.

- 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.

Best ever, easy.
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
Not sure than adding sugar to the recipe. Maybe you can start with a tablespoon or so of sugar.
I just tried it with a 1 to 1 and it was almost perfect. If you are doing 2 to one maybe add a small amount of creamed corn to add the sweetness you are looking for. Just make sure to keep an eye on cooking time with the added liquid.
If I’m not mistaken, BM spread honey on top when done
Really enjoyed this cornbread. I served it with butter and honey.
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?
I don’t recall the cornbread having any chunks in it. So I don’t know how to make that more accurate. I really felt the recipe was fairly close.
The recipe directions have the baking time listed. I hope this is helpful for you.
It was Kenny Rogers restaurants that had corn in it.
I have been making this recipe for my family for couple years now and they love it, thank you for sharing

So make the corn bread per box and the cake mix per box and then combine the two mixtures?
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.
This is much go to cornbread. Totally awesome.
Can it be made dairy and soy free
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.
Boston Market cornbread is probably the best corn bread you can eat
Going to use 3 boxes of corn muffin mix with one cake mix for a less cakelike texture.
Hi Stephanie I want to try your cornbread recipe but how many eggs do I use and do I use butter in the mix
The box mix has the ingredients on it, I think it will take no more than 4 eggs. I do not think there is any butter used in the recipe.
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.
The cornbread is 8.5 ounces, their cake mix is 9 ounces.
Hi Stephanie can you please help me, I am in charge to do the dessert . What dessert is good with BBQ ribs, please
I would try whatever you like best. For me BBQ ribs mean summer so that I would do a homemade ice cream.
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.

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
Well they should have some corn muffin taste. How did it go with the fudge marble?
You used a marble fudge cake mix with a corn muffin mix? Really……..
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.
Interesting, well I appreciate your suggesiton.
Hi can you share the recipe? I live in Australia and don’t have Boston Market here any more and don’t have those jiffy mixes available here either. Thanks
Funny then why try this one if you know the real one??
So how do you make BOSTON MARKETS cornbread?
Maureen, did your company actually make the cornbread mix for Boston Market? May I ask who it was?
I use butter yellow cake insured and it’s amazing
Oh yeah, I love the butter yellow cake mix.
