Almost every Southerner has their favorite cornbread recipe and everyone thinks their recipe is the best, of course! Well, today I’m here to share the top Southern Plate recipes with Jiffy cornbread.
I mentioned this in my Jiffy corn casserole recipe post, but the Jiffy corn muffin mix is a tried-and-true Southern staple in my neck of the woods. Jiffy mix added a lot to my childhood. They were (and are) incredibly cheap and only required one egg and 1/2 cup of water to make a single-layer cake.
But besides cake, you can make everything from cornbread to casseroles to cornbread dressing, another Southern favorite, with a good ol’ box of Jiffy corn muffin mix. You can also make meals from breakfast to dinner. We’ve covered all bases in this post. So without further ado, let’s dive into the best recipes with Jiffy cornbread. Happy baking!

I was raised on hot water cornbread which is my all time favorite. When hub and I got together in ’75, he had never heard of it but it didn’t take him long to want it all the time. Thanks for the recipe for the ones that don’t know how good and easy it is.
I make two boxes of Jiffy, add a little cinnamon to taste bake it in the form of (2) Pound Cakes 8x4x2 pans divided equally (different) form of “Johnny Cake”. I freeze one and eat the other in slices w/ butter on top of the slice.
The Keto cornbread is wonderful ! The texture is more like a spoon bread. Slathered butter over the cornbread and just loved the bread. Easy to make and reheats in microwave so nice. Thank you so much !!
So glad you loved it!!
