As much as I try to fight prepackaged foods, I’m here and now admitting a weakness for a box of Jiffy baking mix. Whether it’s the biscuits, brownies, cakes, or muffins, those little blue boxes of Jiffy mixes are irresistible. For one thing, they’re cheap. I can usually pick up a box for less that 75 cents. For another thing, they are pantry stable. It’s lovely having a collection of boxes just waiting for those moments of panic when you’ve got to get dinner on the table quick…or gotta take a batch of cookies up to school stat.
Of course, the Jiffy boxes have some quick, simple recipes ideas but why stick to the basics? Here are 15 fun recipes that you can make with Jiffy baking mixes. From snappy dinners to gourmet desserts, why not stick to your budget while treating your family to some super delicious eats?
