Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix, Courtesy of The Girl From Abu Dhabi

Actually I was going to post about my duck class but for some reason, I cannot upload my pics to photobucket. I feel like kicking it.

Anyway, as an interim measure, let me share with you the delights of some instant mix. I got a twit from GFAD if I wanted more Jiffy, (Jiffy is different from Jif, the toilet cleaning liquid), a muffin mix that she gave me the last time she was back in KL.


Actually I had almost forgotten about that little box of Jiffy, which sounded a bit iffy, to be honest. I'm not a big fan of instant cake mixes per se. My instant pancake mix, which was blardy expensive too, wasnt as nice as the ones made from scratch. I think it was pillsbury brand.

Anyway, since I was quite free, and the instructions for the muffins said, JUST ADD EGG AND MILK, and I needed to fire up the oven for another thing, I thought, why not, let's DO IT. It really took less than 3 minutes. Open packet, crack egg, pour milk, blitz in processor, (actually probably can even stir manually), pour into lined muffin tin... and DONE! Bake for 15 mins, (might have been overdone), and you have piping hot corn muffins.

I hope my short post inspires as many comments as Thamby's recent 12" burger post. With 2 lines, she spawned 60 comments. Brevity is in!!! I also want laidat.

Thanks for the Jiffy GFAD!

apple watermelon orange lychee said...

Chis. Talk about short cut. I protest. Real bakers shouldn't use instant mixes. Leave that to the rest of us. :-D

Frat said...

Let me add to your comment "count" and say... that was an excellent blog post.

Don't sing too many praises about instant mix packs... you might just go out of... WAIIIITTAMINUTE! I GOT IT! I got it... I got it!

Since I came up with this idea, I call shotgun. We should make FBB cake mixes!!! This way, we can go international!

UnkaLeong said...

*Sniggers* One can only dream of creating a post which could spawn 60+ comments. One wonders if one has to show a cheek to spur such interest. Hehe.

I agree with @apple watermelon orange lychee, real bakers shouldn't use the pre-mix stuff :P Leave it to us pleebs.

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

apricot worange olive loganberry said...

Nipples! Are you calling him a liar? :-P

babe_kl said...

frat, dat was an excellent idea! i volunteer to become guinea pig :p

ToyGirl said...

your short post is missing one photo, of you eating the instant mix muffins. how did it taste?

GrapeFroot said...

Opkors real bakers use instant mixes. They just add more things to it to jazz it up. Like, say to make a casserole.

Felt like kicking the bucket eh? Gotchor list di?

Pls note that the views from all those other fruits are solely their own and are in no way affiliated to Grapefroot. Any similarity is purely coincidental.

gfad said...

Your brevity is not brief enough ler. KISS.

I'll get you some more for you to experiment with. I believe bacon does wonders for it..

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

me? did i call him a liar? maybe. i thought he was lying but you know maybe he wasn't but still doesn't make him not a liar rite?

(at this point, lets c if can really hit 60 comments!)

J said...

AWOL> what's a loganberry? Does it eating it make one sing as well as Logan? I want!! :)

a wonderful orifice literally said...

J, do not confuse Loganberry with Logan's Berry. They're very very different. Ask Karen.

GuavaFloat said...

Tak cukup controversial la, you. Kena hentam kau-kau premix tu, barulah ada orang datang tembak!

Tu Gadis dari AD will come membela her product, and accuse you of being a lousy baker. Then other people will come defend you and blast her off. Masa tu lah, your readership and comment will hit sky high ler..

qwazymonkey said...

I'm back Ah Pa! How's life old man?

For a monkey with no baking skills, instant pre-mixes are the way to go. Call me a cheater bug. :P

Here's my contribution to your increasing comments for this post. :)

gfad said...

Wah.. Your little clay friend (is he made of clay ar? Or some kind of polymer?) Is very business-savvy hor? Making up for his other shortcomings, is he? ^_^

thenomadGourmand said...

Now I want corn muffins in a jiffy too!
Wil be asking Kat to get me some Jiffy..

I IS HAIRYBERRY said...

FBB, don't lie. Lemongrass had 8 but why u says she 12? U not gives right info to readers!

HAIRYBerry again said...

FBB, you not answering my questions yet also. Why?

Hairyberry again said...

*hairyberry takes a bow*

always will order lamborghini said...

HairyBerry, why you so impatients? Cantchu tell that FBB is in a different time zone so he kenot see ur comment until he flushes his toilets? Why you enter ppl's jambans and tell them what to do, HairyBerry? You think your shitz is better smelling than FBB's shitz, izzit? Of course his smells better lor, coz he eats da jiffy corn cakes. You only have Jif (toilet cleaner) cakes.

HairyBerry said...

Ahem, so, brevity is really in lah. I'm now inspired to do a two liner. ;)

I love corn muffins and used to go to kenny rogers just for it! It has since shrunk tremendously! Maybe it's time try to make my own corn. Muffin, i mean. :)

Rambutan cukur said...

Always lamborghini, u is lucky i is poking poking my iphone so not type many. I not wash toilet with jif be because coke cheaper. But u not left, but right. I eat corn and see many in toilet. So, i happy.

FBB, y u quiet? U not answering me?

a whispering oracle levitates said...

Rambutan cukur, your comments is nonsense. everybody knows that when you eat corn cakes, you get corny, and FBB is very corny all de times. if u see corn in the toilet, it means that you are less corny than FBB coz you shitted some out. i questions you now. why you look ur backside and see ur shits?

Rambu Tan said...

Oracle, my backsides not see unless i got mirror. I dont. Shitted corns fall like leaf died from tree. Y? U one stick? U always use paper. Water no stick. U must learn. Why u says fbb corny. His menu got no corn oso. U r lying, same like the 8". u must be same same like all the weird name commentors! I am must be correct. U lies!

aly said...

This is comment no. 28!

fatboybakes said...

thank you all...sniff, i feel like a pregnant marathon runner being cheered on by the triads.

okay, to answer a few pertinent questions:

1. tastewise - yeah, a bit bland, but according to grapefroot, can easily be embellished and made more delicious with other stuff...like cheese, corn, etc..which makes it very unjiffy...

hairy berry, i always thought awol prefers 12" coz she likes rulers?
chis, you calling me a liar?

nipples, eh tu?

guffaw, okay, moving on to what the duck. i now realised you cant orchestrate these things, anymore than you can orchestrate someone to love you.

GrapeFroot said...

'Ello. You said you wanted 60 comments. You didn't mention anything about wanting a formal method of interactive and representational argument in which the affirmative and negative sides of a proposition are advocated by opposing speakers.

Very demanding hor, you?
