How to Make Cornbread with Mayonnaise & Jiffy Mix

We love this easy doctored up Jiffy Mix. It is SOOOO much better than the plain box recipe and just as easy to make. There are only 5 ingredients in this Super-Moist Cornbread and it is ready in 30 minutes. To make the cornbread, simply combine the Jiffy Mix with some mayonnaise, eggs, corn, and butter. Pour the batter into a baking dish, muffin tin, or small cast iron skillet and bake. That is it! SO easy!

You can use any type of corn you prefer – fresh, frozen, canned. Any of it works just fine in this recipe. If you are using frozen corn kernels, there is no need to thaw it first. It will bake right along with the cornbread and be perfect.

  1. This was amazing. I didn’t have corn but did as one of your commenters suggested and added 7 oz chopped mild green chiles. This is my new go-to for cornbread. So moist. Thanks!

    1. It would change the recipe. Unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

  2. I can’t eat corn kernels unfortunately ‘ what do you think would be a good substitute for it?. I’m fine with ground corn. Thanks

  3. We have missed our cornbread since going on a low carb diet. We now make it with almond flour with about 5-6 drops of cornbread extract. Still not quite right but the taste is good. The addition of the mayo might be just what we are looking for to lighten it up from being a little dense. Thanks!

    1. Yes, after draining liquid, if using canned corn. I always add a 4oz can of mild diced green peppers also.

      1. If you live in the Deep South, like we do, you can’t. I know I tried that once and it didn’t go over well. haha
