Sweet Corn Muffins, Corn Bread or Corn Cakes, Like Chi Chi's

Sweet Corn Muffins, Corn Bread or Corn Cakes, Like Chi Chi's

If you loved the Chi Chi's corn bread, which they called Chi Chi's sweet corn cakes, but your local Chi Chi's has closed, you are in luck.  These sweet corn muffins are incredibly fast and easy to make!

If just takes a few things!


  • 1 (8.5 oz.) box Jiffy corn muffin mix, available at most grocery stores, or online here (or the box at right)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 (14.75 oz.) can creamed corn
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup sugar (yes, if you are on a sugar-restricted diet, you can substitute an equivalent amount of Splenda or Truvia (Stevia)) Honey and Agave don't seem to work so well, but your welcome to try.


Step 1 - Get set up

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Get a medium sized mixing bowl (2 quarts - 2 liters or larger), mixing spoon, spatula

Step 2 - Mix everything

Mix all ingredients together in the mixing bowl

Step 3 - Grease a pan and fill

I use a little coconut oil to grease the muffin or loaf pan, but you can use a spray food lube, butter or anything similar.

Pour the mix into the pan.

Step 4 - Bake

Bake for 20-25 minutes (until a clean knife inserted in the middle comes out clean)

Step 5 - eat!
