I’ve been buying little boxes of Jiffy corn muffin mix for years at Aldi, but I couldn’t find it during a recent Aldi shopping trip. I often keep a couple of Jiffy boxes in my pantry so I can easily whip up corn muffins whenever I make chili or other soups in the slow cooker. The Jiffy brand was one of a few name brands that Aldi — which mostly sells private label off brands — actually carried.
Instead of Jiffy mix on the shelves at Aldi recently, I found some corn muffin mix under the Baker’s Corner private label. Baker’s Corner is the Aldi label that encompasses baking supplies such as cake mix and frosting, keto baking mix, muffin and quick bread mixes, yeast, pie filling, biscuit mixes, and more.
I picked up a box of the Aldi corn muffin mix to try.
Baker’s Corner Corn Muffin Mix cost $0.47 for an 8.5-ounce box at the time of publication. That’s about half the cost of what I usually pay at Aldi for name-brand Jiffy mix.
If you’re watching out for allergens, this contains wheat.
There are about three 2-muffin servings per container. One prepared serving has 380 calories, 12 grams of total fat (16% DV), 4 grams of saturated fat (21% DV), 610 mg of sodium (28% DV), 59 grams of total carbohydrates (23% DV), 19 grams of total sugars, and 18 grams of added sugars (37% DV).
Nutritionally, these are similar to but not identical to Jiffy mix.
To prepare these corn muffins, you’ll need 1/3 cup of milk and 1 egg.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Generously grease a muffin pan or use paper liners. Blend the corn muffin mix, 1/3 cup milk, and 1 egg in a medium-sized bowl. Stir until blended. Batter will be slightly lumpy. Fill the muffin pan cups half full. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until light brown. Remove from the pan immediately. The box says it yields about six muffins.
These were as easy to mix up as Jiffy muffins. I spooned the batter into a muffin pan that held paper liners for quick cleanup later, and I was actually able to get eight muffins out of the mix rather than six like the box says.
The muffins were done baking after about 16 minutes in my oven. The tops were golden brown while the insides were fluffy and yellow. I served these alongside a slow cooker full of chili for an easy, hearty dinner. The muffins are fine on their own and have just the right touch of sweetness, but my family split and buttered them for a more indulgent experience.
We really couldn’t tell the difference between these and name-brand Jiffy muffins, so I’ll definitely be buying more boxes of this corn muffin mix. My family approves.
Baker’s Corner Corn Muffin Mix tastes just like name-brand Jiffy corn muffins, and for about half the cost of what I used to pay for Jiffy corn muffin mix when I bought it at Aldi. If you want corn muffins, this mix is an obvious choice.
