Pieces of cornbread, some with pats of butter and drizzled with honey, on piece of parchment paper.

Cornbread is a staple in our home during the cold weather months.

I love using the box mixes (because they’re perfect for keeping in food storage and they’re just easy) but I don’t always love how they taste. The cornbread can be a little bland and taste….well…like it came from a box.

When my mom made cornbread for a family dinner a few months ago and it was the most delicious cornbread I had ever eaten I knew I had to get the recipe from her.

Turns out, it was just a doctored-up version of boxed cornbread!

So whether you’re a cornbread enthusiast or looking to try something new, our Jiffy Cornbread with Greek Yogurt will undoubtedly become a staple in your recipe collection.

This recipe works because it’s:

  • A classic recipe with a simple twist. You’ll just need the boxed recipe and the addition of Greek yogurt to make this deliciously moist cornbread.
  • The perfect pairing for a variety of main dish recipes. Serve this yummy cornbread with soups, casseroles, chili recipes, and more!
  • Great for a crowd. If you have lots of mouths to feed, this is a great recipe to ensure everyone’s tummy gets full.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Recipe Tips and Substitutions

Stack of 3 pieces of cornbread with butter on top and covered in honey on white plate.

While the recipe is delicious as is, feel free to add your favorite ingredients to the batter. Chopped jalapeños, shredded cheese, corn kernels, or diced bell peppers can all add a flavorful twist to the cornbread.

I chose to include Greek Yogurt in this recipe for its high protein content, but if you don’t have Greek yogurt on hand, you can substitute it with sour cream or plain yogurt. The tanginess and moisture from these alternatives will still yield delicious results.

However, keep in mind that regular yogurt has a higher moisture content, so the texture of the cornbread may be slightly different. Adjustments may be needed in the baking time and consistency of the batter.

The collagen peptides are completely optional, but they do add additional protein to the cornbread!

To make a vegan version of the cornbread, substitute the Jiffy mix with a vegan cornbread mix, and replace the Greek yogurt with a non-dairy yogurt alternative, such as coconut or almond-based yogurt.

FAQs

Can I use a different brand of cornbread mix instead of Jiffy?


Yes, you can use a different brand of cornbread mix if you prefer. Just be sure that the quantities and baking instructions are adjusted accordingly, as different mixes may have slightly different measurements and baking times.

Can I use flavored Greek yogurt instead of plain?


Yes, you can use flavored Greek yogurt to add a different twist to the cornbread. Keep in mind that the flavor of the yogurt will affect the overall taste of the cornbread, so choose a flavor that complements the other ingredients like honey or vanilla.

Can I substitute the Greek yogurt with a non-dairy yogurt alternative?


Absolutely! If you prefer a non-dairy option, you can substitute the Greek yogurt with a non-dairy yogurt alternative, such as almond, coconut, or soy-based yogurt. Just ensure that the consistency is similar to Greek yogurt for the best results.

Can I freeze the cornbread?


Yes, you can freeze the cornbread for future use. You can find detailed instructions in this post on how to freeze cornbread. It can be stored in the freezer for up to three months. Thaw it in the refrigerator overnight before reheating.

Can I make mini cornbread muffins instead of a baking dish?


Yes, you can make mini cornbread muffins by using a greased muffin tin instead of a baking dish. Adjust the baking time accordingly, as mini muffins will cook faster than full-sized cornbread.
