After preparing a full dinner for the family, the last thing you'll want to work on are the corn muffins. Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix keeps the mixing process simple - just add egg and milk to the mix, stir, and bake. Making a batch of corn muffins doesn't get any simpler than this!

Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix has been around since the 1930s, and the taste is still great. The muffins are moist and delicious. What's more, you can easily add a few extras to the mix to spice it up, such as your favorite cheese or sauteed peppers and onions. In older cookbooks, such as recipes books from the 1970s, you'll find recipes calling for Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix as a base for the bread or muffins.

There are only three immediate negatives that can be found with this mix. The first is that the mix contains animal fat. Vegetarians will have to search for a vegetarian friendly mix or make their corn muffins from scratch. Secondly, the mix may contain partially hydrogenated lard, a big no-no for some dieters. Finally, people with wheat allergies must avoid this product.

Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix continues to be an excellent corn muffin mix for many families. Tight budgets appreciate the low cost of the mix.

Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix, Member coxen

I have enjoyed your product for many years; however, my experience recently has not been positive: the muffins crumble when the baking cups are removed. I end up eating them with a spoon. There is no surface on which to place butter or jam on it. Have you changed your basic recipe to cause this to happen? I am not going to buy any more Jiffy products because of the above stated problem.
