Jiffy Cornbread Muffins are hearty, delicious. crusty outside, and moist inside. Easy to make with simple ingredients.
DISCLAIMER (NOT SPONSORED). I purchased pictured product and used it in this delicious recipe. Not a paid endorsement.
I developed this recipe over 20 years ago by trying something different. You see, I had already tried the recipe printed on a box of corn muffin mix.
The muffins were not tasty. They needed more ingredients (my opinion).
At the time of my successful experiment, I was craving some real good cornbread with dinner.
I didn’t have enough flour and did not want to make a special trip to the grocery store.
So, I mixed a little Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix with a little flour, white corn muffin mix and sugar.
Stirred until well combined. Poured in greased muffin tin (6 cups) and baked in preheated oven.
A wonderful aroma filled my home while the muffins were baking.
The muffins turned out great the first time I made ’em with extra ingredients. A little sugar enhanced flavor. Muffins do not taste like cake.
Yes, I still keep some corn muffin mix in my pantry. Perfect substitute for flour.
Oh yeah, I’m the proud owner of a Jiffy t-shirt. Did have two. Gave one to my precious aunt who loves it!

One day, I’ll hang this framed t-shirt in the office connected to my “dream studio kitchen.”

How To Read & Follow A Recipe: Tips for Beginners
Reading a recipe is an important life skill that requires properly reading a recipe’s ingredients, and instructions. Plus, knowing how to prep ingredients and what equipment to use.
Start with clean hands and organized kitchen. Wash hands thoroughly. Make sure kitchen and countertops are clean before making a recipe.
Create a relaxing environment. Play favorite music while in the kitchen. I love listening to classical or gospel music.
Read the entire recipe so you understand it and to make sure you have each ingredient.
If you see ingredient that you and your family don’t use for whatever reason, use a substitute.
Watch Recipe Videos. If you’re a visual learner (like me), watching a video tutorial is a great way to see how a recipe is made.
Mise en place is a super time saver. This French cooking term translates as “putting in place.” It means prepping/measuring ingredients and chopping food before you start cooking.
Make notes in your recipe. Note any special prep instructions and highlight cooking times. Make note of ingredients omitted, favorite substitutions and creative twists. The notes will be very helpful the next time you make this recipe.
