This is a recipe I adapted from one of my old cookbooks for my family. I didn't have transportation to drive to the store just to get a box of Jiffy Mix. Well, now after I made this, my family wants this over ANY premix. It is definitely Family Approved :-D.

    If you do a half-recipe, try ¾ teaspoon vinegar to the 2/3 cup milk – also use an 8”x8” square pan for baking, and reduce baking time to 20 to 25 minutes.
