  • 11.5 oz. cornbread mix (I use Krusteaz Southern Cornbread, but Honey Cornbread is great too)
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup melted salted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. pumpkin spice (or 3/4 tsp. cinnamon, 3/4 tsp nutmeg, a pinch of cloves and a pinch of ginger)

Serving suggestions:

  • salted butter
  • regular honey or hot honey
  • pumpkin butter


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 8 or 9-inch square pan with non-stick spray.
  • In a large bowl combine the cornbread mix, pumpkin puree, milk, melted butter, eggs and pumpkin spice. Whisk until smooth.
  • Spread the batter evenly into the pan.
  • Bake for 26 minutes or until set in the middle.
  • Let cool for 15 minutes before slicing into squares.
  • Serve with butter and honey.
  • If you want to make the batter into muffins, bake as directed on box.


Can I use a different mix?
Yes, use pumpkin puree for half of the liquid directed on the box. I calculated these brands for you (bake as directed on the box for the pan you are using):
  • Famous Dave's Cornbread: 1/3 cup milk, 1/3 cup pumpkin puree, 1 egg, 2 tsp. pumpkin spice, the cornbread mix.
  • For Jiffy Cornbread Muffin Mix (use 2 boxes): 1/3 cup milk, 1/3 cup pumpkin puree, 2 tsp. pumpkin spice, 2 eggs, both cornbread mixes.
  • Marie Callender's Cornbread Mix: 3/4 cup water, 3/4 cup pumpkin puree, 2 tsp. pumpkin spice, the cornbread mix.
  • Betty Crocker Cornbread and Muffin Mix (use 2 bags): 1/3 cup milk, 1/3 cup pumpkin puree, 4 Tbsp melted butter, 2 eggs, 2 tsp. pumpkin spice, both cornbread mixes.
