This cornbread bundt cake recipe is easy to make and always a fabulous addition to the dinner table. Serve it up with your next meal and enjoy!
Making cornbread in a bundt pan is a great way to make your side dish look presentable and easier to slice and serve. No more digging it out of a baking dish when you can simply slice and place it on a plate.
We love cornbread around here and while we usually opt for Jiffy Cornbread With Cake Mix or Jiffy Jalapeno Cornbread, this cornbread bundt cake is perfect for holidays and gatherings.
Why This Recipe Works
- Minimal ingredients. This 6 ingredient bundt pan cornbread is an easy side dish perfect for any meal.
- Cornbread with corn. This cornbread is delicious and made in a way that it's sweet, savory, moist, and packed with whole corn kernels in every bite.
- Easy prep. Just mix everything together in a bowl before adding to a budnt pan and baking to perfection. This is a simple side dish that hardly takes any time to prep.
Jiffy cornbread mix- You will need the boxes of Jiffy corn muffin mix, but do not prepare the cornbread as directed on the box. We only want the dry cornbread mix from the inside.
Sour cream- Adding sour cream will make our bundt cake nice and moist.
Whole kernel corn- Use a can of whole kernel corn (drained) for added crisp corn in every slice.
Creamed corn- Using a can of creamed corn will give us a better corn flavor and will help the bundt cake stay moist.
Large eggs- Eggs will help as a binding agent, and they'll help with eh overall consistency too.
Melted butter- Use melted butter to give the cake some necessary fats and a little more richness.

Check out how to make cornbread bundt cake with these simple step-by-step instructions:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease the inside of a 10 cup bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray or butter. Then dust it with flour to help prevent sticking.
In a large mixing bowl combine all of the ingredients with a whisk until well mixed.
Pour the batter into the prepared bundt cake pan and place it into the oven.
Bake for about 50 minutes or until a toothpick can be inserted and come out clean (or with just a few moist crumbs).
Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes before flipping over onto a serving plate. Wait about another 10-20 minutes before slicing and serving.
Butter. If you wish to exclude butter from this recipe, you can choose to use vegetable oil or canola oil instead.
Sour cream. If desired, swap out the sour cream for plain flavored Greek yogurt. This will give you the same results but make the cornbread just slightly healthier.
🍴 Recipe Tips
If desired, instead of making this Jiffy cornbread in bundt pan recipe, you can swap out the Jiffy mixes for a larger box of cornbread (like Krusteaz). Try to find a box or bag of cornbread mix that adds up to the combined size of 2 boxes of Jiffy.
Different sized baking dishes
You can make this cake in a larger baking dish (9x13) bake for about 40 minutes at 350 degrees F and test with a toothpick to check for doneness.
🍰 How to Grease Your Bundt Pan
To grease and flour your bundt pan, rub the inside well with softened butter and then sprinkle flour inside. I used 1 tablespoon softened butter and about 2 tablespoon flour. Dust it around until it is well coated and then flip the pan upside down to tap out the excess flour. I recommend doing this over a clean kitchen sink because it makes the cleanup much easier.
Homemade cornbread can last about 2 days at room temperature if stored in an airtight container or up to 1 week in the fridge. I recommend keeping this cornbread in the fridge when not being eaten and then just reheating before serving.
Cornbread goes great with anything from baked potatoes and chili to an oven-roasted chicken or turkey. There are so many great possibilities and options for serving up this tasty side dish that you can serve it up with just about any comforting meal or holiday feast.
You should allow cornbread about 10-30 minutes to cool from the moment it comes out of the oven. This allows the bread to finish the cooking process and begin to cool which means the soft center can hold up better against the blade of your knife and your slice is less likely to crumble.
