    IF YOU WANT A MORE MOIST MUFFIN ADD 1/3 CUP OF MELTED BUTTER... YEARS AGO THE DIRECTIONS ON THE BOX CALLED FOR THE MELTED BUTTER... YUMMY

    What size of pan should be used to make it into a cake instead of muffins? I'm looking to make enough for a 9X13 pan.

    Can you use self rising cornmeal with this? Would you adjust the baking powder at all?

    I loved the simplicity of this recipe, it was almost as easy as using a box of Jiffy...seriously! I think next time I will use melted butter instead of the oil just to add a little more flavor because why not!! Everything is better with butter, right?!

    WOW, tasted just like the real thing. Can make it as sweet as you want it by adusting the sugar. I made this tonite cuz I was out of the Jiffy box mix. Won't be using that anymore! Served with #87433, WW Texas Chili over brown rice.

    I got tired of the cost of cornmeal and cornmeal mixes rising, so I got popcorn kernels, and I started to mill them myself at home. The first time I made this recipe, it turned out a bit dry, so I lowered the flour from 2/3C to 1/2C, and it turned out perfect. My husband eats it obsessively. ??

    I have made this multiple times now, to answer how much for a 9x13 I personally triple the recipe.. And for that I use 3/4 c sugar also.. The milk needs to be increased for the recipe by a quarter cup (for single batch).. Over all good though =)

    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.

    Instead of milk I added sour cream instead of salt I added lemon pepper. Delicious! This is my second time using this recipe and each time it turned out scrumptious!

    I used white cornmeal instead of yellow, and added butter instead of oil. Came out great, and the butter gave it a little yellow color.

    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 ..
