  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. Mix corn bread mix, milk, sour cream, honey, and eggs in a bowl until batter is well combined yet slightly lumpy; allow to rest for 5 minutes. Fill muffin cups 3/4 full with batter. Lightly sprinkle each muffin with sugar.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until muffins are golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes. Brush tops of muffins with melted butter; repeat brushing muffins with butter 2 to 3 more times.

  • Yield depends on the size of your muffin tin. I used a standard size for this recipe. If you have extra batter, just make some extra muffins!

This recipe made a usually dry boxed cornbread moister and more flavorful. It was a tad too sweet for us, I would make this again but cut out the additional sugar.

This is definitely the way to go as opposed to just following the directions on the Jiffy box. I halved the recipe and also put it in a small round cake pan instead of making muffins because my muffin pan is MIA. I also omitted the sugar just as a preference and I am glad I did because it would have been too sweet for us. The cornbread turned out moist and fluffy with a wonderful honey flavor. This will be a permanent switch for our house. Thanks!!

These muffins were so great and so easy. I have made them just by the Jiffy directions and they were so dry. This recipe fixed the problem and made them fabulous. Thank you!!!

I was looking for a great sweet cornbread and this was it! My entire family loved it. It was perfectly moist. I cooked mine in a preheated cast iron skillet.

I had two boxes of Jiffy at home but didn't want to use the recipe on the box. I omitted the extra sugar per the reviews and these came out very tasty and fluffy. The Jiffy box says that it contains 8.5 ounces of mix, not 7.5 ounces as stated in the recipe so I added a couple tablespoons more milk. Taking these to Thanksgiving dinner and I think I'll use this every year! Thanks!

This was great! I used brown sugar and no honey. I didn't sprinkle the extra sugar either. Kids loved it. Seeing as how my last attempt to cornbread ended up like a door stop :)

I was looking for an easy way to up the level of a box of Jiffy and this was it! I did not add the sugar as per other comments. It would have been too sweet for us.

I have tried this recipe and I thought it was delicious. Made them for Easter and they were eaten up like hotcakes. Will be making more tonite.
