Quickie Cornbread from Rush-Hour Recipes

Rush-Hour Recipes Cookbook
This is another delicious recipe that is part of my review of Gooseberry Patch's Rush-Hour Recipes

 This one is for my neighbor! 

I was at the grocery store one day and I ran into my neighbor.  She was staring at the cornbread mixes trying to decide which one to get.  

She told me she had to bring cornbread to a dinner party and she had no idea what to do?  

She said she had looked up a few recipes and they had a million ingredients.

I hurried and ran through the ingredients in my head and I am thinking - okay they might have like six ingredients (I did look at my cornbread recipe just now and it has 8 ingredients)?  She considers that a million?  All of the ingredients are probably things she already has on hand, except for the cornmeal?  Plus, a box mix probably calls for at least 3 or 4 ingredients, so that is really only a few more than she would already be adding?  Whatever - it made me laugh?  I can see how it would be intimidating to make something from scratch if you have never done it before.  So, this recipe is for her! 

A cornbread recipe with only TWO ingredients!
I am a HUGE sweet cornbread person.  I already have several recipes on my blog and I haven't even posted my favorites yet?  Eventually, I am sure you will all get sick of seeing new cornbread recipes, but I never get sick of trying new ones!  I didn't eat cornbread a lot while growing up, but when I did, it was always a homemade, from scratch, recipe that my mom would make!  I never knew any different?

This was the FIRST time I had EVER used a box mix for cornbread.  I had no idea what to expect.  The end result turned out good!  The creamed corn made it extremely moist.  I drizzled a little honey on top and it was very yummy!  I actually preferred this at room temperature rather than warm.  Not only is this a quick and easy recipe, but it is also a budget-friendly one too.  I picked up the box of cornbread mix for 50 cents and the creamed corn for 69 cents!  How cheap is that?  I think you guys will really like this one!

(Printable Recipe)

1 (8 1/2 oz.) package cornbread mix
1 (14 3/4 oz.) can creamed corn     

In a bowl, stir together cornbread mix and creamed corn until moistened.  Pour into an 8''x8'' baking pan sprayed with non-stick vegetable spray.  Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes, until set and golden.  Cut into squares.  

Jenn's Notes: I baked this for 29 minutes and I think I could have even went another minute or two.  This cornbread is extremely moist and has the "mealy" texture from the cornmeal with a yummy "corny" flavor from the creamed corn.  


  1. Hi Jenn, I'm not normally a cornbread fan but the look and sound of this recipe could change my mind. Thanks so much for sharing it. It looks delicious, and that little drizzle of honey just did it for me. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  2. This sounds great. I love how easily it comes together. I love to visit here. I never leave empty handed. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  3. Ok...so I have never made cornbread from scratch, so maybe creamed corn is a normal ingredient? But it sounds so weird. I will have to try it though. I use that corn muffin mix to make cornbread pancakes...they are so yummy! And I just remembered that I haven't sent you those curry recipes. I will do that as soon as Derek gets home, promise.

    1. Do you want to know something funny? One of my favorite corn bread recipes from scratch is a recipe that my mom said is your Mom's? I can send it to you if you want? It is super easy. I never had creamed corn in cornbread either, but Jake told me that is how his dad used to make it, so I have tried a few recipes with it. It just gives it a more "corny" flavor and makes it super moist. Yes, I still would love those curry recipes! - Jenn

  4. Yummy! Thanks so much for stopping by and linking up to the Tuesday To Do Party!

  5. Will definitely be trying this especially since the ingredients on the back of the box is not required! Thank you for sharing. ~LadyOsu

    1. Yep, just the two ingredients is all you need. Super easy. Thanks.
