There’s nothing like a piece of moist and fluffy Jiffy cornbread straight out of the oven. And this recipe is made even better by adding buttermilk to the mix.

If you’re looking for an easy and delicious way to make cornbread, look no further than this recipe! We’ll show you how to make Jiffy cornbread with buttermilk that comes out perfectly every time.

Moist and Fluffy Jiffy Cornbread with Buttermilk

Jiffy cornbread is a classic side dish recipe that’s been around for years. And there’s a good reason why it’s so popular – it’s moist, fluffy, and full of flavor.

This recipe takes things to the next level by adding buttermilk to the mix.

Adding buttermilk makes the corn bread extra moist and fluffy, which is the key ingredient in many cornbread recipes.

If you don’t have buttermilk on hand, you can make your own by following our instructions below.

I made this Jiffy cornbread recipe in a casserole dish, but it can also be made in a cast iron skillet. Baking it in a skillet gives the cornbread a nice crispy edge and helps it bake evenly.

One more thing – it’s easy to make and only takes about 30 minutes from start to finish.

So, if you’re looking for a delicious and easy cornbread recipe, grab your box of Jiffy mix, and let’s get baking!
