I made this cornbread for my mother-in-law and she said it was the best cornbread she’d tasted.  Even my pickiest eater loves this cornbread!  In fact, when I was little, I hated cornbread so much that even the smell of it would gag me.  This is the recipe that converted me.  It’s so good!

The best part about this cornbread is how easy it is to make!  And since you can use your own homemade Bisquick mix, it’s inexpensive too.  Not only that, but if you want to make a cornbread mix, you can add powdered eggs and milk…and then when you’re ready to bake, just add water and butter!  You’re welcome.  ☺️

Sweet Bisquick Cornbread


  • 2 cups Bisquick mix
  • ½ cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup butter, melted


  1. Mix all ingredients well and pour into a greased 7×11 pan.
  2. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.


  • If all you have is an 8×8 pan, remove a cup of batter and add it to a greased or lined muffin tin.  If you don’t remove some batter, it will spill over the sides of your pan during baking.  I haven’t tested the measurements with a 9×9 pan, but I’d say to remove ¾ cup for muffins.
  • If you make muffins in addition to the pan of cornbread, begin checking for doneness at 18 minutes.  They will bake faster than the pan of cornbread.
  • If you have powdered eggs and milk, you can make a super convenient mix that needs only water and melted butter.  Powdered eggs are pretty easy to find at stores in Utah, but if you can’t find them, don’t worry!  Yay Amazon!  You can get a 2 lb can or if that’s too much, you can get a 1 lb bag.
  • One time I ran out of cornmeal, so I ground some dried corn in my Blendtec.  It made the best cornbread of my life.  So I always grind my own cornmeal now.
  • Small clumps in the batter will absorb in during baking.  Large ones will not, so mix well enough to remove large lumps.
