You are probably wondering what the heck is going on here.

This is a cake baking blog.   Why do I have corn bread on here?

Well.  Its all very exciting you see.

This corn bread is a “copycat” recipe I found.  And its main ingredient?

Yellow Cake!  Ha.  So yeah.  This is basically an extremely delicious corn-mealy-tasting cake.

Keyword: Cornbread
Servings: 6 servings

  • 2 cups yellow cornmeal
  • 1 9oz. package yellow cake mix
  • 1 t. baking powder
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1/8 t. cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 C milk
  • 1/2 C buttermilk
  • 1/4 C vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 2 T light brown sugar
  • 2 T honey
  • 1 T plain yogurt
  1. Sift together cornmeal, cake mix, baking powder, salt, and cayenne in a bowl and set aside. Combine milk, buttermilk, oil, eggs, brown sugar, yogurt and honey in a bowl and mix well. Add to the cornmeal mixture and mix gently. You will want all ingredients fully incorporated, but do not want to over mix.

  2. Place in refrigerator for at least thirty minutes. (Can let rest overnight if needed)
  3. Preheat the oven to 400. Pour batter into 9x13 baking dish. Bake for 25-30 minutes then reduce heat to 350 and bake for 5-10 more minutes. Cornbread is done when top is golden brown. Keep a close eye on cornbread though, you do not want it to get over done and dry. You may not need the addition baking minutes depending on your oven.

  4. (optional) Serve with butter and syrup.

Its just like my favorite cornbread muffins from Famous Daves.

In all seriousness, it is extremely delicious.  I promise you.
