Newbie here. Re read recipe for Jiffy corn muffins several times.... Can't locate temp to bake them... am I missing something? TY aqhead of time for any help... My sisters 70th BD tomorrow and she LOVES these... Do I use my normal Southern Corn Muffin recipe temp? Not sue... and... what makes them so sweet out of the box? I see no sweetener added? :)
Excellent! 5 star rating from me! I don't know if this recipe yields 6 LARGE muffins, but a box of Jiffy very generally yields 12 regular sized muffins for my aunt. I rarely use Jiffy mix, but I will use this copycat when my brother visits. He LOVES Jiffy cornbread. I will be baking another batch, I usually sprinkle the tops with sugar prior to baking.
I have used your recipe for years, as I make all we eat from scratch. My husband, a devoted Jiffy lover, was won over the first time. I use fresh ground sprouted wheat, masa corn flour, and stevia for the flour, cornmeal, and sugar. The only major change has been the need to increase the water amount (I always eye-ball it)-- then it bakes up beautifully. Today I had to make it egg and dairy free so I subbed bacon grease for the oil, coconut milk for the milk, and 1Tbl ground flax and 3Tbl water for the egg. Again, it was scrumptious. Thank you for posting.

Hi .. The pic is of my beautiful son, born on 2/5/2005. His name is Tariq, meaning Bright Star. As I type this, he is blowing bubbles in his water cup and watching cartoons. He whined to get this water for 15 mins and now he won't drink it, he will only play with it. Sigh.. A few days ago he came up with this song, so sing along to the tune of "Old McDonald" : Old McTariq Laq Laq Laq E I E I OOOOOO LOL I thought it was the cutest thing :-) When I'm not running around after my son, or cleaning up the mess he makes wherever he goes, I cook and bake (my husband loves the blueberry muffins I make) and I love trying new recipes .. I also love to read, and collect sci-fi/fantasy novels .. I have over 500 books and still counting ..
