I just love cornbread and have made it with Jiffy mix countless times over the past 30 years. But when I had to go dairy-free a while back, I learned how to make Jiffy cornbread without milk (or eggs).

Making this Jiffy corn muffin mix with creamed corn aka cream style corn is so easy! All you need to do is combine the box ingredients with two other ingredients and bake.

Ingredients to make Jiffy Cornbread (dairy-free)

  • Jiffy corn muffin mix – If you can’t find Jiffy mix, you can use any dairy-free cornbread mix available.
  • Eggs – Binds the ingredients together and gives the cornbread structure.
  • Creamed corn – Canned creamed corn is typically dairy-free.
  • Canola oil – This oil is a good dairy-free option, but if you want to use melted butter you can use dairy-free margarine or butter as a substitute.

Kitchen Tools Needed

Why Make Jiffy Cornbread in a Cast Iron Skillet?

When it comes to making corn bread, baking Jiffy cornbread in a cast iron skillet or dish bakes it the best.

The edges and bottom are crispy and the middle is spongy and soft. A little trick is to stick the cast iron skillet in the oven to preheat. Remove it when it’s hot, spray the oil, and then pour it into the batter. This will make the bottom even crispier.

How to make Jiffy Cornbread without Milk

You can make cornbread without milk. Find out what you can substitute for milk below:

Dairy-free options: to make Jiffy cornbread no milk or dairy-free, substitute milk for creamed corn, almond, soy, oat, rice, or even water!

One of my favorite ways to make it without milk is to use creamed corn (because it’s dairy-free) instead of milk. It makes insanely moist cornbread that’s corny thanks to the creamed corn.

Options with dairy: substitute milk with half-and-half, evaporated milk, sour cream, or plain yogurt. Using sour cream creates a really moist corn bread.

See my other cornbread using Bisquick and creamed corn for another dairy-free recipe.

Just mix all ingredients together until smooth. Fill the greased or lined muffin cups 3/4 full with batter.

Let them rest for 5 minutes then bake at 400ºF for 17-20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center of the muffin.

How to store

If there are any leftover pieces of corn bread, you can keep them fresh by putting them in an air-tight freezer bag and keeping them in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Can I freeze this?

Yes, they’re also great for freezing! If you’re going to freeze the corn bread, spread out the pieces on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper, and stick it in the freezer for at least 15 minutes.

Remove the baking sheet, put the pieces of bread in a zip top bag, seal, and place back in the freezer.

This way, it won’t stick together, and you can pull a few out at a time when you’re ready to serve them.

How to reheat Cornbread

TFN Tip: Before reheating, dampen a paper towel and wrap the cornbread in it. This will help keep the cornbread moist. Because if you don’t reheat it correctly, it will crumble easily.

If your cornbread is in the fridge, you can let it heat to room temperature on the counter or heat it for 15 seconds in the microwave.

If your cornbread is frozen, put it in the microwave for 30 seconds and then in 10 second increments until it’s as warm as you want.

    Yummy! My batter was a bit dry. Could I add more creamed corn? I used cooking oil not butter. The cornbread was still delicious but a little crumbly .

  2. 4 stars
    These were delish! Thank you for sharing a simplified version that anyone can whip up. Our batter was on the dry side so we added a splash of half’n half. Baked up quickly, then dressed each warm muffin with honey butter. I usually make mine from scratch using buttermilk, chopped jalapeño, buttermilk, cream corn & grated cheese however, these my dear worked out well for a quick side to go with our smoked ribs.
