Sweet Cornbread?

How do you make sweet cornbread? I make regular cornbread from the package, and I was wondering if there is a sweet cornbread package or do you make it sweet by adding to that package or do you have to really just home make it? My husband doesnt like regular cornbread, but he likes the sweet kind and i'm wanting to make some with red beans and rice next week.

any suggestions and recipes will help :) thanks ladies

  • I just add sugar to the package, or I do make a homemade version, but I also just add sugar.

  • Krusteaz has a boxed honey cornbread that I love. Not sure that is as sweet as you're wanting, but it's fairly sweet. You could always add sugar or honey to most other mixes I would think.

  • add about 1/4 cup BROWN sugar. and if you ust use the recipe on the back of the cornmeal container, its SOOOO much better if you make it from scratch!!! and it doesnt take that much work.

  • I buy Aunt Jemima corn meal and follow the recipe on the bag, but I add some extra sugar and I bake it in my cast iron skillet. It is soooo good, everyone who's had it has said it's the bomb! It's definitely better than the prepackaged mixes. You could easily add some honey, but leave out a little of the liquid called for. I don't do that though as it makes me sick.
