This classic Jiffy Corn Bread with creamed corn is infused with creamed corn, making it one of the most tender and moist versions you’ll find.
Benefits of using a corn bread box mix:
- There are only six ingredients and one bowl needed (plus one to beat the eggs).
- The corn bread is moist instead of dry and crumbly.
- This recipe is a bit sweeter than most but the sour cream helps tone down the sweetness.
- There are many substitutions listed in the comments at the bottom of this post, but one of my favorites is plain nonfat Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream.
- You can make it as muffins or in a cast iron skillet.
When I was growing up my mom’s mother (MawMaw to me) lived with us until she passed away when I was 15. She was almost like a mom to me during my preschool and school years when my own mom went back to work to help provide for us.
MawMaw was the one who made sure I had a snack in the afternoons and got my energy out before dinner! She saw to it that I studied and also made me practice the piano.
I’m sorry, MawMaw, for all that talking back and complaining. I have five kids now. You can stop talking to God about paybacks now.
Anybody feel me on that one?
But the one thing she didn’t do was teach me how to cook!
I left home for college knowing how to brown a hamburger patty and make a grilled cheese sandwich.
That was it. Real food for real life.
Even all those many, MANY, years ago I knew that once I had kids of my own I was gonna make sure they knew more than I did.
Whether they liked it or not ~grin~
Enter my favorite Jiffy Corn Bread with Creamed Corn recipe.
Easy. Delicious. Perfect to teach the kids.
Even though I’m a southern gal I’ve never been much of a corn bread gal. I find that it’s usually too dry for me.
But since I AM Southern and us Southerners love our corn bread I hunted to find the truly “best” and most moist recipe!
Everybody I know has their “best and easiest” cornbread recipe. Just go to any church potluck to see what I mean!
But they’re wrong.
Mine is the best. The end. (Don’t believe me? Just take a look at all the comments raving about this recipe!)
I wish I could take credit for this Jiffy Corn Bread being an original recipe but I’m sure I got it out of an old cookbook somewhere.
What can I do to make this cornbread more moist?
The selling point for this recipe? There are only six ingredients and one bowl needed (plus one to beat the eggs).
I loved teaching my kids how to bake this recipe at an early age so they can be helpful in the kitchen and aren’t afraid to cook when they’re on their own like I was.
This recipe is perfection. A win for all of us!

Oh.my.goodness. It is divine!
