Jiffy cake mix

I have a recipe that calls for a package of Jiffy cake mix, but I can't seem to find that.

I got some Betty Crocker yellow cake mix instead. Is that going to work out? Are the packages the same size? The one I got says "pudding included". What does that mean and does it match the Jiffy version?

I think a Jiffy mix only makes one layer. It also probably wouldn't be as moist as a pudding in the mix box. But if you just used half I think it would still work.

No they're not the same size and you definately do not want to use a "pudding in the mix" to substitute. The Jiffy mixes are much smaller. Unfortunately I don't have one handy but I think the Jiffy mixes are less than 12 oz. They carry them at Safeway and Kroger stores. You might try googleing for Jiffy and find the weight.

Yes, the Jiffy boxes only make a single layer, so you'd have to use half of a regular-sized box mix.

My dollar stores carry the Jiffy mix. You might try looking there.

Maybe we could answer you better if we knew what you are making.

Jiffy cake mixes (yellow, white, devils food, and lemon) at a mere 9 ounces, are designed to make a one layer, 8-inch square cake. Jiffy also makes frosting mixes (lemon, fudge, and white) designed to frost the Jiffy one layer cakes.



Some nitiwit is selling them on eBay for $1.75, plus a whopping $7.50 shipping charge.

If you really want to buy some, try THE CANDY STORE. They're much cheaper, and they carry ALL those great Jiffy products you remember from your childhood.

Oh Jeeze. I remember when they were 50 cents.

But wait, there's more, lol:

What a "load," Caine! That's a crime. We can buy the Jiffy mixes here at our local dollar stores for 2/$1, sometimes 3/$1 and no shipping charges. Boo, hiss!

One reason I don't shop on eBay ... I'm not a "nitwit".

Yep - go to their website, click on the "Product Locator" link and enter your zip code and they will tell you who sells their products in your area, watermelonman.
