This recipe for Copycat Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix is a really good one because just about everybody makes something that calls for it. It takes no time at all to make a big batch of the mix and it keeps for quite a few months on the shelf or longer if stored in the freezer.
Ingredients for the mix (1 serving):
- 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
- 3 Tbsp. granulated sugar
- 1 Tbsp. baking powder
- 1/4 tsp. salt
I then created a label for the back of the jar with instructions that say:
“Measure out 1 1/2 cups of mix. Add 1 egg, 1/3 cup milk, 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil (I use canola oil). Mix well. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 mins.”
I printed both of the labels out at home using using a free design site called Avery.com. They have hundreds of templates. Simply log in or sign-up for an account, decide on what template you want to use, design your project, and print. I used white, plain card stock for my labels. I attached them to the jar with with double-sided tape.
Step 1: Measure and mix all of the dry ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl.
*Note: The plastic container that I used is a 2-quart capacity canister that I bought at Walmart and it holds 5 (1 1/2 cups) of the Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix.
For each single batch of muffins, add: 1 egg, 1/3 cup milk, 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil. Mix well, pour into muffin tin and bake at 400° for 15-20 mins. Makes 6-12 muffins depending upon what size you make.
