best cornbread recipeMy friend Jenny makes the best cornbread I have ever put in my mouth.  I think that it is really her mom’s recipe, but I have only eaten Jenny’s so she is getting all of the credit.  I hounded her for this recipe.  Borderline stalked.  This cornbread could be considered a meal, it is has so much going on, but it is ridiculously delicious and my favorite thing to eat with chili.  If you have been reading Baked Bree for some time, I am guessing that you may have noticed that I use very little packaged foods and make almost everything from scratch.  This recipe starts with a cornbread mix and I make no apologies for it.  It is how Jenny makes it, and it is not my place to make any changes.  I will say this however, use a mix that has some sugar in it.  The reason that this cornbread is so amazing is that it is sweet and salty, crunchy and creamy.  The mix that I used was far too healthy.  I am not sure what I was thinking, I was in Whole Foods and picked up the first mix that I saw.  I would recommend a Krusteaz cornbread mix or Trader Joe’s has a really good cornbread mix also.

    Oh, this looks beyond amazing. Cornbread is such a comfort food but for some reason it feels like cake to me sometimes? I think having ‘all these things going on’ is actually a great thing!

  2. Gloria says:

    Wow. That is some serious cornbread. Your friend Jenny has got it going on! It looks amazing!

  3. Tami says:

    It is pretty similar to the 2-corn hotdish that my family has enjoyed for years-add a can of regular corn (in addition to the creamed), some water, French Fried onion rings….yummy!

  4. Joanne says:

    I would totally just throw some beans on top of that and call it dinner. Or lunch. Or if I put an egg on top…breakfast. Delicious.

  5. Oh that just looks amazing!! I’m with Joanne … some beans, an egg and its a meal

  6. Casey says:

    Oh my word. I am making this ASAP.

  8. This looks like the most delicious cornbread ever. Anything with cheese on top has to be good!
    Will definitely be making this. Have a super weekend-

  9. Jenn says:

    This looks amazing, I am going to make it tomorrow!
    I only have a jumbo sized corn bread mix from costco, so about how many cups would be the same amount you used?

    • bakedbree says:

      I really am not sure. Check on the mix that you have to see if there are measurements for a 9×9 pan. (it is baked in a 9×13, but you don’t need that much batter)

  10. This is totally new dish for me so I don’t want to miss this dish at all.

  11. Shoy Nelson says:

    I love the sound of this but what sized cans of chilies and how large container of sour cream? I’m guessing 4 oz cans and 16 oz. container. And how much cornbread mix?

    • bakedbree says:

      It depends on the size of your pan and how much you want to make, this is more of a guideline and less of a recipe.

  12. clink says:

    Do you think this would work the same if you used a gluten-free cornbread mix on the bottom?

  13. Jenn C. says:

    I made this tonight with the Krusteaz cornbread mix and it was delicious. I decided to only use one can of diced chiles, because I wasn’t sure how my kids would respond. Next time I’ll use 2 cans. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. I’ve never been a big cornbread fan, but this sounded/looked so good. So glad I tried. Please tell Jenny thanks for me. So good!

  14. Tiffany says:

    TOTALLY a hit at the chili cook-off tonight — THANK YOU!!

  15. Kimberly says:

    This recipe came out fantastic! I did make some changes though and they’re listed below. But talk about delicious! I can’t wait to eat more tomorrow. Thanks for the amazing cornbread!

    Used 2 boxes of regular old Jiffy cornbread mix
    2 eggs
    Added cooked bacon

    Baked it in individual ramekins!

  16. [...] with sour cream, cheese, cilantro, and sliced peppers.  I also make Jenny’s Cornbread to go along [...]

    Hi Bree!

    I love your blog and would love to try this recipe on. I’m from the UK and was wondering if you could tell me how many grams of cornbread mix you need please? I haven’t found cornbread mix here in the UK so I was thinking of just making the mixture myself, I am dying to try this!

    Many thanks

    Fatima

    • bakedbree says:

      I would just make a regular size batch or cornbread and add this to it. It usually makes an 8×8 or 9×9 pan.

  18. Brook says:

    Can I make this day before and leave it out and serve the next day or do I need to refrigerate it? Also, when you say 1 stick of butter do you mean 1 cup of butter? Just discovered your blog and can’t wait to try some of these recipes.

  19. maria says:

    Has anyone made these into muffins? Also, I have a 6+ lb bag of cornbread mix from Costco and the recipe only has 8×8 or 9×9 instructions. Would a 9 x 13 be double the recipe (2/3 c milk, 1/3 oil, 1 egg, 3 1/4 c mix). This recipe sounds delicious!!!
