Jiffy Raspberry Valentine Cakes and a Jiffy Giveaway

My daughter's E-Z Bake valentines (scroll down for directions)

Happy Valentine's Day. Just for the love of it week is over. Tomorrow I am going to cook and bake up some love for my family. I hope you do the same for yours. But as a little valentine gift to my fellow foodies I am having my first little giveaway. Several weeks ago I posted a recipe on Jiffy Lemon Bars made with the Jiffy Lemon muffin mix. I honestly did not expect so many people to come and take a peek at that post. I was even more shocked to hear that some of you would happily have tried the lemon bars if only your stores stocked something other than Blueberry or Corn Muffin mix. How sad! Well, I find it funny that in a place where it is difficult to find a good prosciutto or other Italian staples, Jiffy muffin mixes come in so many flavors. And so I am giving away a box of six Jiffy Muffin mixes. I know it is not an expensive giveaway but hopefully, those of you who want to experiment with the other flavors of Jiffy, will jump on board and enter the drawing.

There are so many recipes to be made other than muffins, and I look forward to hearing other blogger's recipes. You can find some of those recipes at My daughter loves to use the mixes for her E-Z Bake Oven. You will find her idea for a Jiffy valentine below. By the way this is in no way a paid promotion for them. I did not get free product or a request from them. I just wanted to give a little Pantry Eats love this time of year.

The Goodie Box:
Oatmeal Muffin Mix
Chocolate Muffin Mix
Lemon Muffin Mix
Apple Cinnamon Muffin Mix
Raspberry Muffin Mix
Banana Muffin Mix (These may change subject to availability)

How to win: (No complicated directions)
This giveaway is open to US and Canadian residents only (I am so sorry all my foreign foodie friends).
1. Make a comment below about which Jiffy mix you are excited to try.
2. We will have a random drawing on February 21st.
3. Make sure you leave me some way to contact you even if it is just a link back to your blog.
4. Check here on February 21st to see if you won (in case you forget to leave a contact). If I can't contact you I can't give you the prize.
E-Z Bake Valentine

The main reason I buy Jiffy Muffin mixes is because they are cheaper and yummier than the E-Z bake mixes you buy in the toy section. This year my daughter took the raspberry muffin mix, followed the directions on the back of the box and one by one she made some cakes in her mini cake pans. She then removed the cakes, cut out the center for a heart shaped cake and topped with a little pink frosting and a pink marshmallow heart. An easy solution for all your E-Z bakers.

The apple cinnamon muffin mix sounds great. I didn't know that Jiffy made anything but cornbread mix.

I'm super excited to try the Lemon Muffin Mix and Banana Muffin Mix!

I grew up on Jiffy cornbread mix, so I'm happy to tell my mom, too, about all the varieties of Jiffy baking mixes.

I'd be excited to try any of these as the only one I've seen is the apple cinnamon one. I live in Australia most of the year so as a special treat I usually pack a few boxes of Jiffy Cornbread or Blueberry Muffin Mix with me to have every few months over there.
