What to Make With Jiffy Mix

How to Make Pumpkin Cornbread

For the best pumpkin cornbread, use whole milk for a rich flavor. Another trick is to briefly toast the pecans in a saute pan (or bake them in the oven) to make them extra flavorful and crunchy!

  1. Preheat oven and grease muffin tins or line with cupcake liners.
  2. Mix the muffin mix and then add the rest of the ingredients.

  1. Hi there,
    Is the Jiffy mix different that straight cornmeal? Where I live I buy Purity cornmeal for cornmeal muffins. I am wondering if the mix is different. If I only have the cornmeal, what would I need to add to make this recipe?
    Thanks, Deborah

    1. Hi Deborah, Jiffy Mix is different than cornmeal. I’ve only made the recipe with Jiffy Mix. I’ll add a copycat Jiffy Mix soon, and will let you know!
