Really wanting to try this, however I have another kind of cornbread mix that only calls for the addition water.
Do you think I should still add the 2 eggs or skip them as on my box instructions?

I’m sorry Shawn, I don’t feel like I can give you good advice on the matter because I’m not familiar with that particular mix! Every kind of cornbread I’ve ever made has had eggs incorporated.

I did the recipe from the box and threw that brick of an excuse for cornbread away — and then tried this! Like night and day. Thank you. Delicious!

Can I substitute the sour cream with plain Greek yogurt?

Reply
Amy D December 14, 2018 - 10:28 am

That should work just fine Jane, I use the two interchangeably in recipes a lot of times depending on which one I have on hand.

Just made these with my son! OMG, they are amazing . We added 1 tablespoon of melted butter and sugar into the mix and drizzled some honey on top when we removed them.

It will be a perfect accompaniment for a chili cook off, and how fun, it’s perfect weather for a chili cook off. I’m kind of jealous. I have to work this weekend.

Just tried this recipe and….amazing! What I also do is, right after taking out of the oven, spread some pats of butter over all of it, cover pan tightly with foil for 15-20 minutes. Seals that goodness in and makes it even more yummy and moist. 🙂
