When I am in a hurry and don’t have time to grind my own meal I keep America’s favorite standby in my secret pantry cabinet – Jiffy mix cornbread. Jiffy is a great quick cornbread and my kids love it. It is great made exactly like the box instructs or it is easy to jazz it up.
Here is one of my recipes:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In your cast iron skillet add 2 tbsp of lard, bacon drippings or your choice of oil. Place the pan int he oven and let it come to temperature with the oven – the full 400 degrees.
Prepare your cornbread mix as follows:
2 boxes of jiffy cornbread mix
1/3 cup of milk
1 can creamed corn
When your pan is hot and the oil has been spread around the sides and rim pour the batter in. Bake until golden brown and a toothpick in the center comes out clean.
Cool 10 minutes. Turn out of the pan. Cut into wedges. Serve.
You can also add a small can of green chilies to the box mix for a quick change.
