These honey cornbread muffins have the sweetness of all-natural honey with the ever-popular Jiffy mix – Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix to be precise. This is one of the Jiffy cornbread mix recipes that I remember as a little girl when I used to help Mom make muffins on Sunday mornings.
Honey is one of our favorite things to add to cornbread mix. Instead of making honey butter cornbread, make these honey cornbread muffins and serve them with honey butter. My most popular recipe is my Mini Jalapeno Popper Corn Muffins, a perfect combination of corn muffin, jalapenos and cream cheese. Trust me, there is a reason they’re so popular!

Is Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix The Same as Cornbread Mix?
Yes, Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix can be used to make cornbread. Jiffy does not make a separate cornbread mix. Some may say that there is a difference because corn muffin mix contains sugar and cornbread shouldn’t, but that seems to be a matter of personal preference.
Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix is made by the Chelsea Milling Company, a family run business, which has been making baking mixes since the 1930s. Jiffy makes more than 15 different mixes. The Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix is the most popular and widely distributed across the US and 32 other countries.
Some funny Jiffy ads from the ’30s and ’40s said, ” It’s so easy that even a man can make perfect muffins.” Not so PC (my hubby didn’t like that one :)), but the Jiffy Mix is goof-proof.
What Are Corn Muffins Made Of?
Cornmeal is the key ingredient for corn muffins. Jiffy Corn Muffin mix ingredients include flour, sugar, baking powder, and makes perfect muffins. We add egg and milk, as well as honey for the corn muffins. Can you substitute almond milk for regular milk in corn muffins? Yes, almond milk or soy milk will work in these muffins.
My fondest memory of these muffins is when we were getting ready to move houses. It was a sad time for me to pack up all my memories from my room. I was helping my mom pack up the food from the kitchen and we came across a box of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix and a jar of honey at the back of the cupboard.
Mom saved these items to make our final breakfast of honey cornbread muffins before the moving truck arrived. That was the first time I remember making these honey butter cornbread muffins. I always think of moving day when I eat this honey cornbread recipe. Since then, we have Jiffy corn muffin mix add ins to this dish such as: cinnamon, nutmeg, chocolate chips, blueberries, finely chopped nuts or pumpkin pie spice, depending on the season.
Honey cornbread muffins also pair so well with savory foods, like my favorite chili, bacon corn chowder, creamy tomato soup and baked beans (which we serve with sausage and eggs!). If you’re looking for a change from jalapeno corn muffins to serve with Mexican Lasagna, these are the perfect choice.
How Many Muffins Does a Box of Jiffy Make?
The mini honey cornbread muffins are always a hit and the perfect size, especially with the kids! This recipe, using one box of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix, makes 20 mini moist cornbread honey muffins or 6 regular sized honey cornbread muffins.
Honey cornbread muffins, Pumpkin Cornbread Muffins or Blueberry Corn Muffins, served with honey butter are a big hit for breakfast along with Pumpkin Overnight Oats. The kids think drizzling the muffins with honey using the honey dipper is super fun. And they love it when we include them in their lunches with Jalapeno Popper Quiche. Try it, and you’ll “bee” very happy!
