We're keeping with family tradition and sharing the original easy corn casserole recipe from decades ago published by the Jiffy company. While we don't cook with many box mixes, this is one exception our whole family loves, and yours will too!
Other than the store bought cornbread mix, the remaining ingredients are just pantry staples you probably already have.
- Jiffy corn muffin mix - other corn muffin or cornbread mix will work too! Jiffy is the originator of this recipe and what our family has always used.
- Sour cream -adds creamy richness and body. You could use Greek yogurt instead.
- Eggs - beaten large eggs give the casserole dish a souffle-like texture
- Butter - Using butter adds a rich comforting flavor and helps to bind the dry and wet ingredients together
- Cream style corn - we don't recommend swapping canned cream style corn for canned whole kernel corn since creamed corn has extra moisture that's a must for creating the perfect texture. For an extra corn texture, feel free to add one can of drained whole kernel corn or defrosted frozen corn.
- Granulated sugar- adds a touch of extra sweetness, this is okay to leave out!

How to Make Corn Casserole
There's just a couple of basic steps for making sweet corn casserole. Melt the butter in the casserole dish, combine the remaining ingredients, and pour the mix over the melted butter. So simple!
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350 Fahrenheit.
Step 2: Put the butter in a 2 quart baking dish or 8x8" pan and place it in the oven until it's just melted.
Step 3: While the butter is melting, combine the Jiffy mix, sour cream, beaten eggs, creamed corn, and sugar in a medium sized bowl.
Step 4: Pour the corn souffle mix into the pan with the butter, there is no need to mix it together. The butter will surround the mixture on all sides.

- Cheesy corn casserole: Add 1 to 1 ½ cups of shredded sharp cheddar cheese to the batter for a cheesy twist or sprinkle it over the top before baking.
- Spicy Kick: Mix in 1-2 diced jalapeños or a can of chopped green chilies for a touch of heat.
- Bacon, sausage, or ham: Incorporate ½ cup of cooked and crumbled bacon or other smoked meats to the mix to make this a main dish casserole.
- Herb Infused: Stir in a handful of fresh chopped herbs like cilantro, parsley, or chives for an aromatic lift.
- Add veggies: Add a cup of sautéed bell peppers and onions. Adding a ½ cup of salsa would give it a Tex-Mex twist!
Corn casserole makes a great side dish for the holidays, whether you're cooking for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, or a potluck. It's actually super versatile and can be used for a wide variety of occasions!
- At a BBQ - serve it at a BBQ with grilled chicken or pulled pork in place of cornbread. It's fantastic served with baked beans and coleslaw too.
- Holiday Sides: Make it a staple for your Thanksgiving dinner or Christmas, it compliments the classic sides perfectly!
- A Potluck: Great at potlucks since it stores well and it goes well with a variety of different dishes. Add a sprinkle of fresh herbs or extra cheese for a fancier presentation.
- Breakfast: Leftovers? No problem. Serve a big spoonful with a side of eggs and bacon.
Storing & Reheating
- Fridge: Once cooled, transfer the corn pudding to an airtight container or cover the casserole dish with plastic wrap or aluminum foil. It can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
- Freezing: Completely cool the casserole before freezing. Wrap the dish tightly with both plastic wrap and aluminum foil and freeze it for up to 3 months.
How to reheat corn casserole
If refrigerated, you can easily reheat the casserole in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for about 20 minutes or until heated through. If frozen, it's best to thaw the casserole overnight in the refrigerator before reheating. Or, you can microwave individual servings, but reheating in the oven will give you the best texture and flavor.
Corn Souffle FAQ's
The original corn casserole using Jiffy mix does add egg to the mixture which gives it a light and fluffy texture. There are other variations out there that don't add eggs and are more dense and topped with cheese.
Another popular name for corn casserole is corn pudding or corn souffle. Depending on the region and specific ingredients used, it might also be called a corned pudding, corn bake, spoon corn, cornbread casserole, or creamed corn casserole.
The names can vary based on texture and local traditions, but they generally refer to a similar dish combining corn, a creamy mixture as the binder, and often homemade or store bought dry corn bread ingredients baked together.
