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.

The Best Jiffy Cornbread

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.

Moist, tender, buttery cornbread. It’s a real winner!

  1. I like mine sweet with a few teaspoons of molasses in it.. put some in a coffee cup hot with heated milk= heavenly dessert!! Try it!!!

  2. Vanessa Brooks

    My favorite way to make cornbread! Going to try to make corn muffins this time since I’m giving some away so I’ll let you know how that turns out.

  3. This recipe is absolutely delicious. Mine took about 45 minutes to cook and when I sliced it crumbled a little but. It’s everything you said it would be .. moist, buttery .. I WILL serve this during the holidays and anytime in between Thank you so much for sharing 🥰

  4. Just as the recipe stated The Best!!! Hands down! This will be the only recipe I use from here on out❤️

  5. Khemary Sok

    This is a super easy recipe that has been our favorite to make when er make chili! My friend’s son loves this cornbread too! So good!!!

  6. I have one better. Take the Jiffy corn bread mix and a Jiffy yellow cake mix and mix them together. Follow both directions as printed. The only modification to make is the temp. I think one says 400 and one says 375, so we split it at 375. You will never change back.

    1. I feel like this post is inappropriate. This is about commenting on this recipe. You changed the whole thing. Please post your recipe somewhere else. This just seems so rude. By the way, I made this recipe and it was very moist bread and I enjoyed the original recipe.

  7. Lyssette Case

    It is definitely a hit with my family! It is very moist and I added cinnamon butter to the top and it was delicious!

  8. Literally the best cornbread ever. I halfed the recipe and baked at 1/2 the time and it came out amazing. Thank you!

  9. Tracy Carlile

    I brought this recipe over to a friend’s house and they loved it!! I forgot to put the sugar in it and it was the way I would have liked it anyway. I think it would have been to sweet! Such an easy recipe too! It’s a keeper!

    1. Rosie Hinshaw

      I prefer a thick cornbread. Can this be baked in a 8×8 pan? If so what changes, if any, would you suggest.

        1. Best cornbread! I made in an 8×8 pan 400° for 30 mins. Excellent!
          Re-heated left over two days later in microwave and it was the same as out of the oven. Will be making for Thanksgiving, it’s that good!!!

    1. Only my second time making cornbread but I will never ever try another recipe. Turned out absolutely more than perfect!

    2. Tracy Carlile

      I would put a damp paper towel over it and heat it in the microwave starting at 30 seconds! Depending how many pieces you have!
