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.
My now go to muffin and cornbread recipe,add 1/2 cup milk for cornbread.
Made this up as mixes to use later and stored in plastic containers. All I needed was to add the egg, milk & oil. First time I used the pre-measured mix I made pancakes. I used the recipe off the side of the Jiffy box for pancakes- added 1 egg, 2 T Canola oil and 3/4 c milk. The best pancakes ever, very light with a lot of flavor. This mix replaces the Jiffy boxes in my pantry. Thanks Antilope for sharing.
This is spot on. Tastes just like the Jiffy Corn Muffins of my childhood. Mixes up easy and quick. The advantage to making your own vs buying the Jiffy Mix? The Jiffy mix contains lard. This is the perfect replacement. You could even mix up the dry ingredients in batches and store for a quick mix up later. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
Exactly like Jiffy! Thanks!
This is a great little recipe. I use it whenever Jiffy mix is called for in a recipe, and it never disappoints! BTW, "Jiffy Mix" is not all that great for you, health wise. Thank you for posting this nifty little recipe~
I was looking for a Jiffy mix substitute to use in Super Corn and was very happy to find this one...it worked perfectly. I just made the dry mix and reduced the sugar to 2 tablespoons. Thanks so much for posting.
We really enjoyed this, very close to Jiffy Mix. I added a bit of additional liquid to make it thinner and pourable, as it was a very thick mixture, but it came out just fine. Thanks for submitting it, Antilope.
