Sweet Old Fashioned Cornbread


  • 1 bag Pamela's Cornbread & Muffin Mix
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 8 TBSP butter* (1 stick) or butter substitute, melted
  • 2 eggs, large
  • 1 cup water or milk
  • *recommended for best results


Preheat oven to 375°.

Melt butter. In medium bowl, combine Cornbread & Muffin Mix, sugar, melted better, eggs and water. Pour into greased 8-inch square pan and bake in the middle of the oven for 23-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. To make muffins, spray tins or papers well with non-stick spray, fill to top, and bake 15 to 20 minutes.

To re-heat cornbread, wrap in paper towels and re-heat in microwave, or wrap in foil and re-heat in oven.


Sugar substitute

Sugar can be reduced or deleted for a less sweet cornbread. Or, substitute ¼ cup honey or agave liquid to replace the sugar.

Butter substitute

Equivalent butter substitute or ⅓ cup oil can replace the butter.

Buttermilk Cornbread

Replace water with 1 cup buttermilk.

Cheddar Cheese Cornbread

Add 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (omit butter for a lower fat option).

Green Chili Cheese Cornbread

Add 1 can (4 oz.) roasted green chili peppers (drained) and 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese.

Green Onion and Sour Cream Cornbread

Add 1 cup sour cream, 1 cup chopped green onions and ½ teaspoon black pepper (optional). Reduce water by ¼ cup.

Corn Kernel Cornbread

Add ¾ cup fresh or frozen corn kernels (thawed & drained). Optional: for color add 2 TBSP chopped pimentos.

Sweet Pepper Cornbread

Reduce sugar to 2 TBSP and add ½ cup diced bell peppers (any color combination).

Chef’s Note: The cornbread variations will take longer to bake than plain cornbread. For 8 x 8” pan bake 35 to 45 minutes, muffins 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick in the middle comes out clean.
