Easy Cornbread Waffles Recipe

A recipe for Jiffy Cornbread Waffles made from a simple muffin mix!

My friend Robyn will attest that I was obsessed with cornbread long before I lived in the South. I remember sending her a souvenir magnet with – you guessed it –  a cornbread recipe on it back when we were in college. That was looong time ago.

When I first heard of cornbread waffles, I wondered why I hadn’t thought of this before!

Cornbread AND waffles!?! Seems like the perfect Southern food mash-up to me. Why not try making cornbread muffin mix waffles?!

So of course I immediately got my waffle iron out and gave it a try.

How to make Jiffy Cornbread Waffles

I used a cheap box of Jiffy cornbread mix and followed the directions on the box (add one egg and 1/3 cup milk).

The batter seemed too thick to me so I added a tablespoon of melted butter and few more splashes of milk.

Be sure to spray down the waffle iron with some non-stick spray and cook the waffles until there is very little steam coming out of the waffle iron. 

The result? Cornbread nirvana (as far as I can tell). They were crispy yet fluffy and retained the amazing cornbread texture that is near and dear to my heart.

We had them for dinner with Carolina-style Pork Barbeque and coleslaw and it was amazing.

Then a few days later we had the jiffy cornbread waffles for breakfast. I didn’t feel that they needed any butter or syrup because they were so good by themselves.

The box of cornbread mix cost me around $0.50 so they are about as frugal as it gets.

Just a note - remember to spray the waffle iron with Pam (or something similar) or put end up with a mess.
