See the recipe card at the bottom of the post for the full list of ingredients in this creamed corn cornbread recipe.
Jiffy corn muffin mix. This sweet corn bread with creamed corn recipe starts with two boxes of Jiffy corn muffin mix.
Eggs. Eggs act as a binder and give the sweet cornbread rise.
Sour cream. Sour cream is a key ingredient to super moist cornbread recipe. You can substitute full-fat plain Greek yogurt.
Honey. Honey is a natural pairing with cornbread and is the perfect addition when you want to make a sweeter cornbread. You can also use maple syrup. If you like your cornbread a little less sweet, reduce the honey down to ¼ cup.
Cream-style corn. Sweet cornbread with creamed corn has a little extra sweetness, moisture, and even more corn flavor.
Butter. If you're making cast iron skillet cornbread, you'll need a little bit of butter for the pan.
Preheat the oven to 350.
Spray an 8x8 or 9x9 square pan or casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Add the boxes of Jiffy corn muffin mix, eggs, cream style corn, honey, and sour cream to a large mixing bowl. Stir until completely combined. The batter will be lumpy.
Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish.
Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or with moist crumbs and the internal temperature reaches 195-200 degrees.

Store at room temperature in a dry, dark place for 1-3 days. Store in the refrigerator to prolong the life by a few more days.
