I have a box of jiffy apple muffins mix Can I turn it into a cake? Maybe add another egg? It’s the right size I need don’t want to make batter if I can use this
Hey K8 I thought you would be all over this Can’t anyone tell me?
first I saw it, lynne — hey right back atcha, wha-at, me?? you’re the reigning queen of cake extenders! halve the one cake mix extender recipe and make cupcakes with the leftover batter
ps maybe add some cinnamon
and a teensy dash of lemon?
I see no reason why not. To me, a muffin is a cake by any other name. Go for it!
Well I made it adding an extra egg; 1/2 of an apple grated; apple juice for liquid (didn’t measure-just poured till I thought batter was thin enough) & about 1/3 cup sour cream . Don’t know how it will taste until tomorrow night when we meet to play cards
My Mom use to use muffin mix in a pinch all the time. I don’t think eating as kids we even ever noticed. Smelled and tasted just like cake!! I mean in many ways, muffins are just mini cakes. Your recipe sounds great Lynne, and I’m sure will taste great.
It does sound delicious! I love being surrounded by experienced bakers who call pull off something like this at the drop of a hot! Love this group!

Drop of a hot... Hee Hee... guess you’d drop if it was hot!!! Hat I’m sure was the word!!!
I tried to change the typos, but another glitch I guess, it just said "oops, something went wrong" and would not let me change "call" to "can" or "hot" to "hat". I know all of you can read gibberish anyway! We all can, if we are experienced computer users, lol.
You use to be able to edit what you wrote even after posting. Haven’t been able to that for a very long while. I now routinely read over before I post. Try and catch any mistakes.
Okay, here's the thing....
I didn't even know there was such a thing as Jiffy Apple Muffin Mix!!!!!
I'm going to the store today and am going to Have to look for it!
I found it at a local 99 cent only store Never would have looked in a grocery store—I usually don’t use things like that but that day it “called my name” :)
Thanks for that info kakeladi !
I have one of those stores across the street (closer than the grocery store), so if I remember next time I go there...I will look for it.
I figure I can always use one when I'm in a pinch, late at night, and want some kind of baked goods! :)
My Mom & Dad use to spend the winter’s in Texas for 6 months. Coming back to Canada in the spring. My Mom would bring back boxes of Jiffy cornbread, and muffin mix. I’d forgotten all about that. She also brought back bags of pecans, free, from the tree near their trailer. Other goodies too. I literally had bags of pecans in my freezer. Took me years to use them up. All gone now. I miss some of that cool stuff.
an extra egg & some sour cream makes everything nice
I hope you’re icing/glazing it — I think it will need some sugar
Wish I had a source for "cheap" pecan. Have you priced them lately??? I use a lot at Christmas. and I love the toasted sugared pecans , used to give those as gifts at Christmas. Haven't seen the apple Muffin mix sounds good. Let us know how your "recipe" turns out.
betty, the two pound bags at costco and walmart’s are the best deals I can ever find — I eat pecans every day — they are a little pricey —
