I have always been a fan of classic Jiffy cornbread– easy and OMG, CHEAPPP!! Right?!

I’m also a fan of sweeter cornbread and doctoring up a box of Jiffy corn muffin mix makes my perfectly sweet cornbread–and it takes hardly ANY effort at all!

While some recipes call for extra “fat” such as sour cream, butter, or oil, I love adding a can of creamed corn for sweetness! Plus it makes the cornbread super moist and gives it the best texture!!

Slather on some butter and a drizzle of honey and honestly, I could eat the whole pan myself! I suggest you share though….alongside a big bowl of Taco Soup or this Red Chicken Chili 🙂 It also makes a great side for these Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Thighs!
