Jiffy Cornbread Mix

5 minutes of work will get you a cheaper, yummy version of this convenience mix, and you get to control the ingredients and the cost! Make a few batches at once to store in your pantry or freezer for the rest of the fall and winter!

I have found that the convenience mixes in the store are getting more and more expensive. I have been using this recipe that I found in a family cookbook for several years.

Let's get started:

  1. Thanks so much. I always buy this once a year on case lot. Now when I run out I'll make my own. Can you tell me if there's an easier way to print one recipe per page? I clicked the print button and it wanted to print the recipe on 3 pages. Thanks!

    1. I just went back and typed it up in google doc's and added a print link before the recipe so you can just click and print a one page recipe. That way your not printing the whole blog page just to get to the recipe!
      THanks for letting me know that is how it was printing, I'll remember to add in this print option in the future!

  2. I love all of your recipes! I, too, am tired of "convenience" items from the store because of their cost and the ingredients that are added to them. Thanks to you, I am making so many of my own! I am definitely going to make this one, too. Thanks for linking up with "Try a New Recipe Tuesday!" I can't wait to see what you share this week. :-)

  3. Love this! How much does one batch make? What size pan should I bake it in? Thanks. :)

    1. about 12 muffins or an 8x8 inch square pan.

  4. May I ask what size of round skillet to bake it in? I have 3 sizes in the trailer , this will be great year round but will be wonderful during camping and hunting season.

    1. 1 batch is good for a 6 or 8 inch round skillet. Use 2 batches in a 10-12 inch skillet for a family sized batch. I use cast iron skillets and preheat them with a 1/8 cup of oil while I am mixing my batch. Then when I pour the mix in, you want to hear it just sizzle. Cook as directed but when it comes out, It has the best crunch on the bottom,and the best moisture on the inside. So good! Best of luck!

  5. how on earth do you get 12 muffins? I barely got 8.

    1. I always pour mine into a cast iron skillet and bake it "cake" style. The "about 12 muffins" is based on the original recipe that I have always had for many years, and muffin tins were smaller way back then as well, not the larger sized ones we have today. Thank you for your feed back, as I know it will be helpful to other readers as well! I love feedback on recipes!
