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!
- Preheat oven and grease muffin tins or line with cupcake liners.
- Mix the muffin mix and then add the rest of the ingredients.
- Scoop into prepared muffin tins (using a cookie scoop or spoon) and bake for 16 to 18 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted into the center of one comes out clean.
- Let cool on a wire rack about 3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container such as Stasher bags or zip top bags. Be sure to label them!

Recipe from Jiffy
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?
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!
Looks good. How much liquid honey would you add to make it sweet without drowning it?
Hi Deborah, I’d say you could easily add 1-2 Tablespoons of honey to this recipe and it’d be amazing!
