A soft, cake-like cornbread with just a hint of sweetness.
  • 1- 18 oz. box yellow cake mix
  • 2-1/2 c. yellow cornmeal (finely ground type)
  • ¾ tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ½ c. oil
  • ½ c. butter, very soft
  • 4 eggs
  • 1-3/4 c. lowfat buttermilk
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin tins with paper cups, or spray muffin top pans with non-stick spray.
  2. Whisk together cake mix, cornmeal and baking powder in the mixing bowl of an electric standing mixer.
  3. Add oil, butter, eggs and buttermilk. Mix on low speed until just blended, then turn up to medium speed and mix for 3 minutes.
  4. Use a small scoop to portion about ¼ - ⅓ c. batter for each muffin or muffin top, depending on the size of your pans. Do not overfill. Fill about ¾ths full.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
