The Best Jiffy Cornbread Recipe! Taste just like homemade cornbread with a boxed mix and a few hacks! Pairs perfectly with a big pot of beans or chili!


  • 2 boxes Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix
  • 4 Large Eggs
  • 2/3 cup Buttermilk
  • 1/2 stick Salted Butter


  1. Mix your cornbread mix with 4 large eggs and 2/3 cup buttermilk. Stir to combine, but not overmix. Set aside while you preheat your oven and skillet.
  2. To a cast-iron skillet, add half a stick of salted butter. Place in a cold oven, and preheat the oven and skillet to 400˚.
  3. When the oven dings letting you know it’s preheated, give your cornbread batter a gentle stir.
  4. Carefully remove the skillet from the oven, and pour batter over the hot melted butter.
  5. Bake at 400˚ for 25-30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown, the sides are pulling away from the skilet, and a toothpick comes out clean in the center.


Jiffy Cornbread Hacks:

  1. Double the eggs. And use large eggs!
  2. Use buttermilk instead of regular milk.
  3. Add in vegetable oil or melted butter, for a very moist cornbread.
  4. Use a cup of sour cream or greek yogurt instead of milk. This helps create an amazing moist texture.
  5. Add in a can of cream-style corn or creamed corn.
  6. Zhuzh up the flavor with a can of green chiles or cheddar cheese.
  7. Add in a teaspoon of baking soda to help the boxed cornbread mix rise.
