Upgrade Your Jiffy Baking Mixes

jiffy mix

One of my favorite things to do is take an inexpensive boxed baking mix or even a cake mix and giving it an upgrade.  Although I love to bake from scratch, there is often no many things to buy and many of them are expensive.  So this is a great way to give an inexpensive mix a frugal but yummy upgrade.

Jiffy Mixes are awesome for this purpose!  I grab them when they are under a buck and keep them in the cupboard.

  • These are the best little boxed baking mixes.  I love to pick them up at the Dollar Store. They last forever in the cupboard and are easy for kids to make.  Here are a few upgrades that are inexpensive:
    • Cornbread Mixes:  Add canned chilies and a dash of pepper for a spicy cornbread
    • Cake Mix: Add cocoa for a chocolate cake
    • Cake Mix:  Add pureed freeze dried fruit (it should look like a powder when you are done)
    • Cookie Mix: Add chocolate chips, nuts, left over crushed pretzels, and even raisins and make compost cookies
    • Pizza Crust:  This makes awesome flatbread if you brush it well with olive oil before baking

How do you use Jiffy Mixes?
