  • 2 cups (250g) yellow cornmeal
  • 1 package (15.25 ounces) yellow cake mix
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup (55g) vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and prepare a 9x13 pan with non-stick spray.
  • Sift together cornmeal, cake mix, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
  • Combine buttermilk, oil, eggs, brown sugar, 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.
  • Pour batter into 9x13 baking dish. Bake for 25-30 minutes and then check to see if the top is browning. If it is already very golden brown, you may want to cover with foil for the next 5-10 minutes. Keep a close eye on cornbread though, you do not want it to get overdone and dry. You may not need the addition baking minutes depending on your oven.
  • Serve warm.
