Make Your Own: Jiffy Cornbread Mix


5 minutes of work will get you a cheaper, yummy version of this convenience mix, and you get to control the ingredients and the cost! Make a few batches at once to store in your pantry or freezer for the rest of the fall and winter!

I have found that the convenience mixes in the store are getting more and more expensive. I have been using this recipe that I found in a family cookbook for several years.

Let's get started:

Mix in a airtight storage bag:

Cornbread Mix:
2/3 cup Flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
3 Tablespoons sugar or sugar substitute
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt.

Label and store in pantry or freezer.

To Bake Mix:
In mixing bowl mix cornbread mix with:
1 egg
1/3 Cup Milk
2 Tablespoons of oil

Bake 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes

  2. When I was in Arizona I stopped at a restaurant in Scottsdale that served a very delicious cornbread. This isn't for everyday use, but it does make some delicious bread. I add in a can of diced green chilies, sometimes 2 of the small cans. I also add in a stick of softened butter, I know it's a lot, but for those special occasions it's delicious. Sometimes we'll also add in fresh corn off the cob. Corn bread can be very basic and delicious or very decadent and delicious!
