Recipe Box, Jiffy Jiffy Cornbread

Ok, I have a confession to make…I hate cornbread…


I’ll be kicked out of the South if word gets out!

When your husband is slaving over  making a batch of chili, and asks you to make cornbread, you must rise to the challenge right??

Shhh…never admit you used a mix….

This cornbread is so moist, made with creamed corn, cheddar cheese and buttermilk

With just a touch of sweetness from the mix

It’s dense and rich, and just a slender slice is all you need

Leftovers freeze beautifully!

AND, now I love cornbread!

So sit back and sip your sweet tea

this cornbread practically makes itself!

  1. Jenna, your cornbread looks so moist and delicious! I am so glad that you now like cornbread. I had rather have cornbread than a biscuit or yeast roll. I can eat it anytime, anywhere. Jiffy mixes are always good!

    Jenna, I have two boxes of Jiffy in my pantry at the moment! So easy to doctor with cheese, jalapenos, additional corn or sour cream! I’d rather have cornbread than banana pudding. 🙂

      I will try this cornbread, and I do love cornbread. We in the rank and file of Southern eaters salute your bravery in your admissions. We will form a support group to find ways to bring you into the fold. Our fervent prayer will be that a great banana pudding recipe comes your way and a conversion takes place. ; ) Seriously, this looks like a great bread with chili. I enjoy all your recipes.

  3. I have used a similar recipe for many years, LOL!! Jiffy is just so easy and it is good!

  4. Ellen says:

    What does a New England gal know about cornbread…only enough to recognize a great recipe when she sees one! Jiffy corn muffin mix is a staple in my pantry and this sounds like another fantastic way to use it. Thank-you!

  5. I could live on cornbread! Yours looks delish. Have a wonderful week, Jenna.

  6. I use this mix in my breakfast casserole that trip loves. Your secret is safe with me…. I promise we won’t kick you out of Alabama! BTW I enjoyed having lunch with you and Emily so much on Monday! Y’all are the sweetest!

  7. This looks good! A couple of years ago, I went to the Jiffy factory and they gave us samples. I’ve been enjoying a Jiffy corn casserole. Making the mix like the box says — boring. THIS sounds well worth the time and extra ingredients! (Here’s the link to the factory post!

    YUM! I would like a slice with coffee this morning! LOL! I love me some Jiffy corn bread mix. Years ago my dad ate dinner with me one Sunday and I had made a pan of jiffy corn bread. He bragged and bragged on it and said it was the best he had even ate. Of course I did not tell him it came from a box! Have a great day sweet lady. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  9. Sharon Mann says:

    As long as it tastes good, right? Love you funny post today.

  10. LOL, Jenna, I can keep a secret! I make my own but when I was young I did like using Jiffy because it was quick. I have to say I do like how you’ve doctored this up. I sometimes add corn and jalapeños when I make chili. Looks yummm! I’m still thinking about you and Ricki Jill and how much I enjoyed lunching with you both.

    • I’m hoping my son doesn’t read this post, he loves to make cornbread and does it the old fashioned way with an iron skillet, but I just don’t like it 😝 I hope we can lunch again soon!

    I love cornbread, but glad to see a new recipe. We do the same thing, well sort of, we “doctor” the mix, with well, whatever the heck we want!

  12. Cyndi Raines says:

    I’m a northern girl who likes cornbread, but my mom would add a little sugar and would call it Johnny cake. Thanks for the tip on how to make regular milk into buttermilk. Will pin, sounds good to me😉.

  13. Lynn says:

    Well I’m glad to hear you won’t have to move now:@) Sounds like a tasty cornbread!

  14. Miz Helen says:
