How to make your own jiffy/quick cornbread mix

 This is the way I do it. 

You can customize this the way you like it.

To make the mix combine all the dry ingredients
Mix 1 cup cornmeal
1 cup flower
add 1 table spoon of baking soda or powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
Note you can leave the sugar out if you prefer or add more

 When you are ready to make corn bread
add 1/2 stick butter  Melted or cut up
1 egg
Start with 1cuk milk. add up to to 2 cups milk to create a consistency of what you saw in the video. It will be a little thicker than pancake mix.

Grease cast iron pan or 8 or 9 in pan Preheat oven to 400f or 204 c bake 20 -30 min
.Test by inserting a fork. If it comes out clean it is done. You can change this recipe to 2 cups corn meal 1 cup flour for a thicker bread. Yellow corn tastes better and needs less milk and sugar. You can change any part of this to make it better for your corn. I grease the pan with butter or lard bake till to starts to brown. around 20-30 minuets temperature (424 f or 218 Celsius )
Top with butter or honey to eat


This is better than a Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix Copycat mix.

Simply use the dry ingredients from your normal recipe and add wet ingredients when you are ready to use. 
Have a wonderful day and remember to laugh and play.
