The BEST Jiffy Cornbread

This is the BEST Jiffy Cornbread. So moist and delicious. Slather it with butter and you will think you are tasting a little bite of heaven.

Two pieces of Jiffy Cornbread on a plate.

This is THE cornbread for people who abhor dry, crumbly cornbread. This Jiffy Cornbread is moist even three days later.

It goes great with so many things.

Cornbread is great for turning a southern-side into a full meal. A great way to inexpensively feed the whole family!

Bake In A 9×13-inch Pan

This recipe makes a 9×13-inch pans worth of cornbread, enough for 12 people. If you still have some cornbread left after three days, cut it into cubes, drizzle it with butter, spread it out on a baking sheet, and bake at 350 degrees until crispy. Voila! Cornbread croutons! So delicious.

Quick and Easy Recipe

Jiffy Cornbread only takes about 5 minutes to measure and mix everything in one bowl and then 25 minutes to bake. It’s a mixture of 2 boxes of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix, milk, melted butter, sour cream, eggs, and sugar. The sour cream helps make the cornbread moist and it cuts the sweetness some. You can leave the sugar out if you want the cornbread to be more savory.

This Cornbread Is Sweet!

If you like old-fashioned southern cornbread with no sugar, this is not the cornbread for you. I add one tablespoon of sugar which I think gives it just the right amount of sweetness. You can leave the sugar out if you want the cornbread to be more savory.

  1. So good! Served with catfish, string beans and rice. My 104 year old grandmother thought it was delicious!!

  2. Love this recipe. Baked it in a 9×9 pan for a thicker cornbread. Served it with red beans and rice with fried catfish on the side. Yumm!!

  3. Loved this recipe. The cornbread was moist with a nice amount of sweetness. Not too sweet and not heavy.
    I used skim milk, reduced fat sour cream and less butter. It was perfect.
    My husband said it was delicious and he doesn’t usually like cornbread.

  4. I made this recipe but replaced the sugar with honey and added 1 cup canned corn and a handful of shredded sharp cheddar and my family raved!!! They said it was the best cornbread they ever ate! Even better than the BBQ joints! I’m going to try the batter in a waffle iron next for a twist on Chicken and Waffles!!!

  5. Great simple recipe that tastes great! I halved the recipe & used a 9″ square glass dish. Only took 22 min. in my oven.

  6. I am making it now! Looks great from the recipe. I didn’t have any sour cream so I used
    Greek Yogurt. So far so good🥰

  7. Since it’s just two of us in the household, I cut the recipe in half. It still came out perfectly (and I wish I would’ve kept the original measurements because this cornbread is addicting!). I will definitely be using this recipe from now on when making cornbread. Thank you so much!

  8. This was the best cornbread I have ever had. Made it during the holidays and family and friends LOVED it. So easy and freezes well if you have any leftovers. Making it again for my husband and me tonight. Absolutely delicious!
