  5. Finally, add the box of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix and mix well.

Pouring melting butter into a baking dish.

Melt the butter and pour it into a greased 8″ x 8″ (or 9″ x 9″) baking dish.

I used a stoneware baking dish for this recipe, but a glass dish or a cast-iron skillet will work perfectly for the recipe.

I happened to use a 9″ x 9″ dish, but 8″ x 8″ will work perfectly, as well.

You can grease the pan with some nonstick cooking spray.

Add the Jiffy mixture to the casserole dish and spread it out a little. Bake for one hour at 350 degrees.

I just let the butter go where it wanted to go, and it turned out so good. Such great butter flavor throughout.

The easy dish cooks up a golden brown top layer that is divine.

TIP: Be sure to place a cookie sheet underneath the baking dish, as the butter can sometimes run over).

Optional Ingredients

You can add different ingredients to the Jiffy cornbread mix to give your side dish a different flavor. The recipe is perfect for holiday dinners (it’s a holiday staple around our house) or any gathering.

  • Green chiles add some spicy flavor to the delicious side dish.
