THE MAIN INGREDIENT
I keep several boxes of corn muffin mix in my pantry. Perfect substitute for flour.
MY INSPIRATION FOR THIS RECIPE
I developed this recipe over 20 years ago. I had made a batch of muffins using the recipe printed on a box of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix. They were not tasty in my humble opinion.
The next time I had a taste for muffins, I whipped up my own recipe. DEEELICIOUS results!
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 a preheated oven.
The muffins are hearty with a mild sweetness. They do not taste like cake.

MY JIFFY COLLECTION
I’m the proud owner of several Jiffy items that were given to me by Howdy Holmes, the company president waaaay back in 2010.
I own a Jiffy t-shirt. I kept one and gave the other to my precious aunt who loves it.
My “Jiffy” book is autographed by Howdy Holmes, president of Chelsea Milling Company.
One day, I’ll hang this framed t-shirt in the office connected to my “dream studio kitchen.”
