Speedy Mini Cornbread Loaves

You know me – I always love a made from scratch recipe.  BUT – there is a time and place for everything… and there is even a time and a place for shortcuts!  This is one of my favorite shortcuts.  All you need is 2 boxes of jiffy corn muffin mix, milk, sour cream (light will do), and two eggs!

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease a mini loaf pan with shortening.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine mix, milk, sour cream, and eggs.  The batter will be slightly lumpy.
  • Fill each little pan up about 2/3 of the way.  Sometimes I have too much batter and make a few little muffins with my silicone cups.
  • Bake for 18 minutes!  If your loaves don’t look golden enough, rotate the pan and cook 2-4 more minutes.
  • Let them sit in the pan for just a few minutes, and then turn them out!  You can use a knife around the side of each well to help coax them out if they get stuck.

I served these for two dinners already!  I love whipping them up for BBQ season.. the boxes of mix are under 50 cents at ALDI and these are really a treat.  The addition of the sour cream helps make them more light and airy.
