Corn Spoon Bread

Corn Spoon Bread, is an old fashioned dish that has been around since the establishment of the colonies, and goes by many names these days - Corn Casserole, Corn Pudding, Corn Spoon Bread, to name a few - though all of those actually started out as completely separate recipes. Pretty much they all now represent a single dish similar to this one.

And, like regular cornbread, there are a multitude of variations, some with milk, some without, some with a few eggs, some with a lot, some with sugar, some with no sugar. We simplify this dish a little bit by using a boxed Jiffy mix, though I've also included a cornmeal substitute for you. This dish is very souffle like, sort of like a fluffy cornbread, people who love all things corn just love this dish. Sometimes I add cheese, sometimes I don't. It is a perfect holiday side dish, but once you add it, expect that it will be asked for year after year.

Here's how to make it.

Corn spoon bread goes by a number of names, including corn casserole, but it's basically a souffle made of cornmeal, corn, sour cream, milk, eggs and butter, and a wonderful side dish for any holiday.

Ingredients

  • 1 (8.5 ounce) package corn muffin mix (Jiffy brand recommended)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1/4 cup of granulated sugar, optional
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 2 cups fresh cooked, canned, drained, or frozen, thawed whole kernel corn
  • 1 (15 ounce) can cream corn
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup of shredded mild cheddar, Monterey jack, or your favorite cheese, optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a deep 2-1/2 quart casserole dish; set aside.
  2. Combine the corn muffin mix, salt, pepper, and sugar, if using, in a mixing bowl; set aside.
  3. Melt butter in a saucepan and add whole kernel corn. Let simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat, add remaining ingredients, including the whole kernel corn; mix well. Pour into prepared casserole dish.
  5. Bake uncovered for about 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours OR until golden brown and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Time will vary if you use a more shallow dish; so begin checking at 45 minutes. Serve immediately.

Notes:

Time will vary if you use a more shallow dish. All ovens also differ in how they cook, so begin to check for doneness at about 45 minutes.

Jiffy Mix Substitute: Substitute 1/2 cup of yellow cornmeal, 2/3 cup all-purpose flour, 1 tablespoon baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt for the cornbread box mix in this recipe.

Tex-Mex Variation: Mix up the corn by using Mexicorn in place of regular or frozen, add in a can of drained, chopped green chilies and 1/4 teaspoon of cumin. Use a Mexican cheese blend if adding in cheese.

Hacked Jiffy Cornbread: Omit the corn, sugar and cheese and use two boxes of Jiffy cornbread mix. Use all other ingredients, increasing milk to 1/2 cup, or enough as needed to create pourable batter. Increase cooking temperature to 400 degrees F. Butter a 9-inch square baking pan and bake about 25 to 30 minutes.
