Simple Ingredients for Corn Casserole without Jiffy

  • Frozen corn| I used a combination of white and yellow frozen sweet whole kernel corn. If preferred, substitute fresh corn or even canned corn.
  • Whipping cream| For a pudding, you need rich, creamy ingredients. I used organic heavy cream.
  • Butter| I used salted butter for this southern corn pudding casserole. If you use unsalted, add another ¼ teaspoon of kosher salt to the easy recipe.
  • Eggs| I use large organic eggs in this recipe.
  • Sugar| Just a touch of sugar will do! If your corn is super sweet, omit it altogether. Or feel free to cut it in half, or try using a Monk fruit sugar replacement.
  • Flour| I prefer organic, all-purpose flour for creamy corn pudding.
  • Baking powder and eggs givelightness and lift to this tender and sweet corn casserole without Jiffy.
  • Salt| Kosher salt adds the right balance to the natural sweetness of this casserole.

Do I thaw frozen corn?

  • Do not thaw corn! Just stir it all into the mixture, breaking up clumps; it will cook in the oven!

How to Make Easy Corn Pudding Casserole Recipe

Before you start, grease your 9×13 inch casserole dish with butter or spray oil and preheat the oven to 350° F (175° C).

Next, combine the dry ingredients with a fork or whisk in a small bowl and set aside.

Combine the wet ingredients by whisking the eggs, whipping cream, and melted butter in a separate large bowl.

Then, gradually add the dry ingredients, whisking until it is thick and smooth.

Stir in the corn, breaking up any clumps of frozen corn, and pour it into the prepared 9×13 baking dish.

Bake for 45-75 minutes in the preheated oven; until pudding is set and deep golden brown around the edges. It should still be slightly jiggly in the center, but when you insert a knife in the center, it should come out clean.

Top Tips for the best Corn Pudding

  • Check your oven temp using oven thermometer to confirm and adjust.
  • Try returning it to the 350° F oven, covered with foil for 15 minutes. Remove foil and allow to sit for 10-15 minutes.
  • Corn pudding casserole is soft, souffle, or custard-like. Unlike cornbread or most recipes that use Jiffy Mix.
  • Use a quality butter, lesser butters contain a higher water content.
  • If using canned corn, drain really well!

If baking in individual portions, place ramekins on a baking sheet and bake at 350° F (175° C) for about 30 minutes.

Allow the creamy corn casserole to rest for 5-10 minutes before serving. Then, enjoy!

Fresh Tips for the best Corn Pudding

  • Drain the corn well if you plan on using canned corn.
  • Pudding-style casseroles or souffles can be tricky to determine when they are done. The pudding is done when the edges are golden brown, and a knife is inserted into the center of the pudding, and it comes out clean.
  • If your casserole is browning too quickly before it’s done cooking, loosely lay a piece of aluminum foil over the top.

No! Corn casserole is soft, like bread pudding, more of a souffle or custard than a cornbread.

Is this a healthy corn casserole recipe?

Compared to others out there with lots of mixes, canned creamed corn I would say this is healthy. It’s clean in that it uses whole food ingredients.

BAKE LONGER? The consistency of this recipe is more like bread pudding than cornbread, keep that in mind when baking. Every oven bakes slightly different, mine took about 45 minutes to bake, some people take as long as 75 minutes to bake, remove from oven when it is barely jiggly in the center. Some pans are slightly larger or smaller than others too, all of these factors will impact baking time.

STORAGE | Wrapped tightly, corn casserole will last 3 days in the fridge, frozen up to 4 months. Cool completely before freezing. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap, may be stored up to 4 months in freezer.

GLUTEN FREE | This dish is easily converted to be gluten-free, simply substitute regular all-purpose flour with gluten-free all-purpose flour.
