Sometimes a recipe will call for a box of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix. Here's a clone recipe you can make at home. If another recipe calls for a box of corn muffin mix, leave out egg and milk from this recipe. This recipe is equal to one 8.5 ounce box of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix. Makes 1-1/2 cups dry muffin mix.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F Combine flour, corn meal, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix well with whisk.
  2. Whisk in vegetable oil and mix until dry mixture is smooth and lumps are gone.
  3. Combine above mixture with egg and milk and mix well. Batter will be slightly lumpy. For best rise, let batter rest for 3 or 4 minutes. Stir once or twice after rest.
  4. Fill muffin tins 1/2 full. Bake 15-20 minutes. Makes 6 muffins.

Vegan version: used whole white wheat flour, just 2 T sugar, 1 tsp baking powder, egg replacement made with 1T ground flax seed 3 T water allowed to sit for 10 or 15 minutes, and 1/2 c vanilla soy milk up to 1/4 c water. Splendid! I am a long time user of jiffy mix and this makes a tasty replacement in our new vegan lifestyle.

I made this tonight using a self-rising cornmeal mix that contained flour but no sugar (because I did not have straight yellow cornmeal on hand). I added the amount of sugar called for in the recipe. I also had to add a little extra milk to make the batter suitable for plain cornbread. Other than these changes, I made the batter as directed and baked it at 400 degrees for a little less than 20 minutes. As others have said, it had a really nice texture. It was softer, moister, and less crumbly than Jiffy cornbread. The only thing I might change next time other than making it completely from scratch is to add just a little bit more sugar. After making this tonight, I see absolutely no reason (besides laziness) to ever buy Jiffy mix again. Thank you!

Great recipe, I found the batter quite thick which made it hard to separate, but they look and taste wonderful. I ate Jiffy Mix a lot growing up, but of course you can't find it here in Germany. I made it to go along with chili but I think I would make it in future as well for breakfast and snacks.
