Homemade Cornbread Recipe {Jiffy Cornbread Copycat}


Ya’ll? I love cornbread. Slap a piece down on my plate with a good bowl of chili, alongside a piece of fried chicken, serve it along side my hearty beef stew recipe or honestly? Just slather it up with butter and a tiny bit of salt and I am in Heaven. I’m not big on boxed mixes though so I needed to come up with something that fed my love of cornbread but tasted amazing too! Enter this Jiffy Cornbread Copycat Recipe.

Skip the boxed mix and make this homemade cornbread recipe {Jiffy Cornbread Copycat} instead! Warm, just the right texture and oh so good! You'll wonder why it took you so long to make it!

 

If you like cornbread, you’ll love this homemade cornbread recipe just as much as I do. It’s not too dry but it’s also not so moist that it comes across as a cake. It’s sweet but not too sweet. Really it’s the best cornbread recipe that I’ve ever tried and once you bake it up? I’m sure you’ll agree. This recipe was one of the ones that I turned to when we started removing as many chemicals as possible from our home. We have stopped buying and started making over 60 items by this point. This one? Has been in my list of things to make instead of buy for over 10 years now. In other words? It was one of my first replaced items.

It really has the kind of taste that keeps you coming back again and again. I’ve tried a lot of copycat recipes, but it wasn’t until I gave up on others and made this Jiffy Cornbread Copycat that I found one to stick with. If you want to make this up ahead of time, you’ll have to do with the dry mix only. The wet mix and the finished cornbread do not freeze well. You can however make the dry mix up and store in an airtight container or freeze to use at a later date. Just write the measurements for the egg and wet ingredients along with the instructions on the baggie and you’re good to go.

Ready to get started? In a medium mixing bowl, combine the all purpose flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt. Use a fork (in other words, don’t use your mixer) to make sure they’re mixed together well. Once they’re combined, add the egg, milk and oil and mix well again.

Pour your batter into an 8×8 baking dish and tap it a couple of times to level it out. This should also bring any air bubbles that are down in it to the surface.
