How to Make Sweet Maple Cornbread

As I said, this cornbread only takes a few minutes to make. Mix together cake mix, cornbread mix, eggs, oil, water, and maple syrup with a hand-held mixer. Pour the batter into a 9×13-inch pan and bake.

  • I used a box of Betty Crocker yellow cake mix.
  • Make sure to use real maple syrup in this recipe and not pancake syrup.
  • Can Cornbread be frozen? Yes! You can freeze the baked cornbread for later.
  • How long does Cornbread last? The cornbread will keep 1 to 2 days in an airtight container.
  • Feel free to mix in a can of corn kernels or cooked bacon to the batter.

  1. I’ve never really cared much for “traditional” cornbread but this sounded so good to me I had to give it a try. It is FABULOUS! My boyfriend (who loves any cornbread) said it was the best he’s ever eaten. High praise, indeed! Thanks, Steph for a wonderful new recipe.

  2. I just received my Martha White prize with all of the great muffin mixes and I'm especially excited over the Nashville Eats cookbook, thanks so much!

  3. I L O V E cornbread and could eat it all day, every day. No joke! This looks great! Lately I've just been using Jiffy Cornbread mix and eating it with butter & honey but I am excited to try it with Maple Syrup!!

  4. WHEN are you going to post a recipe that starts: "I just got back from an incredible trip to Rome…" When are you coming Steph?! Thought it was this month…. Wendy
