bonnie’s 1930’s jiffy mix (clone recipe)

This cornbread is just like the Jiffy Mix cornbread I grew up with. I loved Jiffy cornbread, and so did my kids when they were growing up. But Jiffy IS a processed food, and I can't eat that, so I did some research, and this is the best one I could find. It is perfect! I made an 8 inch pan, which is just the perfect size for the two of us. You can get four nice squares of cornbread from this recipe. The secret to making it like Jiffy is to use your mixer to "make it mealy". Enjoy!
