Corny Cornbread – From a Mix!

I took my all time favorite cornbread mix, Marie Callender’s, and doctored it up by adding golden, sweet whole kernel corn, a little water and baked it for just a quick 20-minutes!  This is the best cornbread EVER!  And duh….easy!

I bake.  From scratch.  All the time.  And I have made cornbread from scratch before too, but I have a deep rooted love for Marie Callender’s cornbread mix.  Plus, it’s easy and I made this cornbread to go with my Super Easy Weeknight Meal, which I will be sharing with y’all soon.  I also have fond memories of the good ol’ Jiffy cornbread mix too.  I grew up on that stuff!  Whenever my mom was making Jiffy cornbread with dinner, I always asked to help make the cornbread.  Because I like the raw cornbread batter and would always sneak a few spoonfuls.  Is that weird???  Am I the only one that likes raw cornbread batter?

So I made a few changes to the ingredients and directions from the original directions on the back of the Marie Callender’s mix, to come up with this Corny Cornbread!  Yum!

Easy as 1-2-3 to make this cornbread batter!

Serves: 12 Cooking Time: 18-20 minutes


  • 1 (16-ounce) bag of Marie Callender's cornbread mix
  • 1/2 cup of canned golden, sweet whole kernel corn
  • 3/4 cup water



Preheat oven to 375-degrees. Line an 8x8-inch baking pan with parchment paper or foil and spray the bottom and sides with baking spray. Set aside.


In a large mixing bowl, dump entire pouch of cornbread mix, water and 1/2 cup of corn. Mix until combined and then pour out into prepared baking dish.


Bake in 375-degree oven for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out without raw batter on it.


Remove from oven when done, and set on wire rack to cool for several minutes before slicing into desired sized squares.


Serve warm, cold, with butter or honey!


Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

Mmmmmm….the perfect addition to any meal if you ask me!

    Kelly I love the addition of corn! Cornbread always reminds me of of my mom making ham hocks and beans to go along with the corn bread and we always used Jiffy Mix. I didn’t know Marie Callendar had a cornbread mix, so I’m gonna have to try it now! Yum!

      Hi Kim! Awww I love the memory you have of your mom making cornbread to go along with dinner! I haven’t had Jiffy since I was a kid….good memories 🙂 They sell the Marie Callendar’s mix at grocery stores, Walmart and sometimes in huge bags at Costco here in California! I know they sell them online too (Amazon, Walmart, etc) 🙂 XOXO
