Kathy's Southern Corn Pudding!

This is not your grandmother's corn pudding!  By that, I mean that it is not the corn pudding with a dozen eggs in it that cooks up all light and souffle like.  This is a denser and hardier corn pudding and it is also something boys seem to love.  Can you tell I have always cooked mostly for boys?  This corn pudding is also very easy to put to together. 

 

Here is what you will need:


1 can cream corn, 1 can niblets corn, 1 Jiffy cornbread mix, 8 oz sour cream, 1/2 stick butter, 1 egg, 2 Tbs. sugar, and 2 cups cheddar cheese



Melt butter, add Jiffy cornbread mix, egg, sour cream, sugar and the corn.  Drain the can of niblets corn.  Mix well until all of the ingredients are incorporated.


Spray a 2 quart casserole dish with cooking spray.  Be sure to not skip this step, because this will stick.  Pour it in the dish and bake at 350 degrees for  45 minutes.  Sprinkle the 2 cups cheese over the top and return to oven for about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and just beginning to brown.


 
Ingredients

1 can cream style corn
1 can niblets corn
8 oz sour cream
1 Jiffy Cornbread mix
1 egg
1/2 stick butter
2 Tbs. sugar
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

  2. I make this. I drain my nibblet corn. Do you drain yours? Just wondering how it turns out if you don't. I love this stuff! I make it for bbq's all summer, and there is never a drop left! And it is a must for Easter Sunday!

  3. I'm not sure I would call this a corn pudding, but the boys in my house would devour it immediately. Thanks for a great recipe!

  4. This is not traditional 'corn pudding' which is why I call it 'southern corn pudding'...lol. You know we have to have cornbread and cheese in everything. :)

  5. You do drain the niblets corn. It says that in the directions of the recipe. You can actually also use a couple of cups of frozen corn.

    1. Since the jiffy already has sugar in it, wonder if it would be ok to leave out the extra sugar?

  6. I am a celiac, so can't have the cream corn and I can substitute normal cornbread for my kind. Can I just omit the cream corn and double up with corn?

  7. I make this but I've never used cheese. Might try it!

  9. CAN YOU PREPARE THE NIGHT BEFORE?

    ReplyDelete
  10. You can prepare it the night before, just don't bake until you get ready to serve. Take it out of the fridge 30 minutes before baking.

  11. Yes, girls like this recipe also, of course. I just cook for mostly boys most of the time. Nothing else was meant by that and why am I even explaining???

  12. You can use all niblets corn instead of the creamed corn, it just changes the texture a bit but it's still good.

    2. i cook this all the time i don't add the cheese and sour cream but it turns out really good if you never had it, it is a must try

    3. If I omitted the cream style corn and wanted to use all frozen corn, how much would I use? Also, should I thaw the frozen corn first? Thanks so much! I think I'm going to make this over the weekend with taco soup! :o)

  16. I make is all the time for the holidays...I call it corn casserole. Yummy stuff!

  17. Jocelyn, you might double the recipe for that many people if you think they will all eat it. We usually have so many sides they all eat a little of everything, but if they all like corn doubling it would best.

  18. This is almost the same as my recipe. Only I use cream cheese instead of sour cream. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I agree, this should be called cheesy corn casserole or something. I'm sure it's delicious though.

  20. I make something like tis but instead of cornbread mix I used crushed crackers. It is not quite as dense but I want mine moist and dense. Is this just as moist do you think?

  21. It's also good with a can of chopped green chilies added to it.

  23. People are such winches on here...seems like under each recipe somebody makes a smart ass remark and hides behind who they are.Quit following this site if you have such crappy things to say.

    1. I agree also...am so tired of people gripping about things they are reviewing.... go somewhere else if this does not suit you. Enough said.....

  24. Kathy, Thank you for posting this. I can remember eating this growing up but never got the recipe because I always had mom and grandma to fix it for me. Now both of my favorite women are gone and I've missed this till now. I have most everything needed to make this for dinner tonight..yummy!

  25. sure need you to rerun the baked ham you ran this past week I cannot find it anywhere.helen3290@charter.net

  26. What can I use rather than Jiffy Cornbread mix? It has lard and we don't eat pork products. Would cornbread mix work just as well?

    ReplyDelete
  27. I always put frozen corn kernels in the muffin mix, and sometimes mix in shredded cheddar cheese. This recipe sounds yummier! Is it eaten like corn bread, or with a fork of spoon like a casserole? I'm guessing it comes out quite moist?

    ReplyDelete
  28. I've made this without the cheese.
    We always called it spoonbread.

  29. We make this all the time but to jazz it up we use queso blanco instead of cheddar. It spices it up nicely.

  30. My gr'mother made Corn pudding for my Dad as a little boy in the 30's & 40's, but used finely crushed soda crackers. Us 8 kids still fix it, according to Gr'ma's recipe.

  31. Thank you so much for posting this. My Aunt Elva lived in Pikeview, KY., and she would make this for our family gatherings. She would always make an extra one and give it to my Mother, for me, because she knew how much I loved it. Sidenote: I always thought she was rich, because she had toilet tissue in the outhouse, and we used catalogue pages, lol. Yes, I am old (66 yrs) and grew up in KY.

  32. Have you tried it with Niblets Mexi-Corn? We put French Fried Onion Rings on top during last 15 min. of cooking.

  33. Judy, that is so funny and just like something my mother would say. :)

  34. When you write up a recipe on our own blog, you can pretty much call it whatever you darn well want to call it...lol. That's why it's called "Kathy's Corn Pudding"! What difference does it make what we call it, if it's good and you like it.

  35. Here in the UK we don't get cornbread mix - can you tell me what the ingredients are? I have cornmeal, both fine and coarse, and would love to try this recipe!

  36. Sounds yummy. Can't wait to test on my boys. ;)

  37. @ Angel. I bet you can go online and order the Jiffy mix. Just Tootle Jiffy Cornbread Mix. I can't get many of my southern favorites here in the southwest, and that is how I keep my southern (USA) pantry stocked!

  44. Thanks for the recipe...I am going to make it. Sounds so easy a child could fix it. Not sure why grown women cant seem to follow these simple instructions. I sure dinner time at their place is a fiasco

  45. Jiffey cornbread mix has lard in it. Can this be made with plain cornbread mix?

    ReplyDelete
  46. I make this, combined a few recipes trying to make the "corn cake" that was served alongside maid dishes at Casa Gallardo. When I say I am making cornbread, this is what you'll get. :)
