Pile of cornbread muffins
Keep This Store-Bought Cornbread Mix Out Of Your Shopping Cart
Boxed cornbread mix can make your life easier in the kitchen, but out of all the boxed options, you probably want to skip Martha White’s Yellow Cornbread & Muffin Mix.
The main issue with this cornbread mix is its overly dry texture, which practically guarantees that it will crumble in your hands before you’re able to eat it.
You might be able to fix this by adding wheat flour to your mix, which will give it more gluten and thus more elasticity, but that won't solve all your problems.
Aside from the texture, the cornbread has a harsh flavor with a distinct chemical taste that overshadows the subtle buttermilk flavor cornbread should have.
