“Who won? Corn cake?” my friend Jake asked. He knew the real winner; he had just eaten the proof.
I’ve been messing around with Jiffy corn muffin mixes for a few years now (Spinach Dip and Black Bean Egg Bake, Kefir Chili Corn Cake, Spinach and Artichoke Corn Cake, Smoked Cheddar, Spinach and Artichoke Corn Cake) and I’ve finished with different results every time. The directions on the box read simply: milk, egg, mix. But I can’t leave it at that. I continue to challenge the ratio of liquid to mix because each time I indulge in another spoonful of mustard or yogurt, my results yield better and better outcomes.
Sometimes the dreary mix wins, and I don’t add enough spin and it turns dry and uninteresting.
But this time, Jake, I won.
