Here is my JIFFY CORNBREAD HACK using just ONE BOX and adding a few ingredients to make it really moist and fluffy!

It goes from crumbly and blah, to moist and wow! 

JIFFY cornbread mix has been around for decades, since 1930! It is very popular. By itself I find it a little dry. BUT, there are many, many recipes out there to improve it! I have a tried a few. A lot of them use 2 boxes. I like my way because it uses only one box, so I get just enough, and the pieces are not gigantic! And being moist and fluffy is how I like cornbread.

Some people like cornbread made in a cast iron skillet which gives a crispy crust and brown edges. I think there are two camps of cornbread lovers!

In this recipe, sour cream gives the cornbread a little tang and adds moisture.  Butter adds richness.  JIFFY mix already has a subtle sweetness to it, but you can add the optional sugar if you like it more sweet. For making muffins, follow the TIP on the recipe.

See the EASY steps to make this in the slideshow below.

WANT MUFFINS?  Grease a muffin tin or use paper cupcake liners.  You will make 6, or 7 depending on size.  For the maximum crown on the muffins let the batter sit in the bowl for 4 minutes first then continue. Bake at 400° for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
DO YOU LIKE REAL SWEET CORNBREAD?  Add in the optional sugar for more sweetness. 
LEFTOVERS?   Reheat in the microwave for about 15 seconds. 
CORNBREAD TOASTIES:  I love to cut them in half, put them in the toaster oven for a few minutes and then spread some butter and jam on top!
