3. Prepare Basic Recipe For Jiffy Batter. Follow the original recipe on the back of the Jiffy box as detailed here. In a medium bowl, whisk together box of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix, egg, and milk, until combined. A few small lumps in the batter are fine.
4. Pour Jiffy Batter. Pour Jiffy batter evenly over the top of the bottom honey butter layer. Do not stir the two layers together.
