I love having cornbread in the summer. It tastes so good with barbeque and mexican foods. But cornbread can be really dry and lacking in flavor. I have a great recipe for you today for really moist, flavorful, sweet corn muffins! You may be surprised to see that I used cake mix in these…I don’t even use cake mix to make cake! There is just something about yellow cake mix that gives these the perfect flavor. Using butter, flour and sugar just didn’t do it – maybe if I would have added vanilla that would have done the trick? I will have to try that next time.
If you like to have actual corn kernels in your muffins go ahead and add them. I was going to but the husband vetoed that idea. They were fabulous anyway, I hope you try these for your next picnic or mexican fiesta!

What an interesting idea! I’ll have to try this next time I make cornbread.
I always know something good is cooking over here:) I almost never make cornbread in the summer. I am not sure why but your right it’s perfect with BBQ.

I’ve never made cornbread with buttermilk before. Sounds wonderful!
I love cornbread. I’ve never made it with buttermilk, but I’ve never met a baked good made with buttermilk that I didn’t like! Definitely need to try this!
Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust says
These sound delish! I always have the dry problem when I’m making from scratch – and cake mix always makes it moister. Love these muffins!
Ericka Breedlove says
These look tasty! And the photos are lovely too! Thanks for sharing on Foodie Friends Friday!
Yellow cake mix to make corn muffins? Oh my goodness!! This is amazing. Must try these. Corn muffins are surprisingly one of my favorites, which says a lot because I need chunks in my muffins… but not with these. 🙂

I love corn muffins of any kind, and these sound great!
