Jiffy Corn Casserole Recipe

With the magic of Jiffy mix and only 5 other simple ingredients, you can effortlessly create a great side dish that’s both delicious and comforting. No fuss, no hassle—just mix the ingredients together and let the oven work its magic.

Also called spoon bread, corn pudding, or cream corn casserole, this sweet and savory side dish is a family favorite, like our creamed corn and fried apples.

If you haven’t ever had it before, you are in for a real treat. It is almost like a moist, creamy corn bread loaded with corn kernels.

Sweet corn is used in the recipe, which gives the casserole an incredible natural sweetness that will leave everyone begging for seconds.

Like sweet potato casserole, this is one of those recipes that are so sweet and satisfying that they could seriously double as dessert!

A box of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix, sour cream, 2 eggs, can of kernel corn, can of creamed corn, and melted butter.

Here is what you will need:

  • Jiffy corn muffin mix
  • Can of sweet corn (whole kernel corn)
  • Can of cream style corn (creamed corn)
  • Sour cream
  • Eggs
  • Melted butter

Note: I have found that some cans of corn are 14.75 ounces and others are 15 ounces. Either size can will work well for this easy corn casserole recipe.

Corn Casserole Recipe Variations

  • Regular corn: Only have non-sweet corn on hand? No worries! Your casserole will still be amazing–just not as sweet. If you want to make it sweeter you can add ¼ cup sugar to the recipe.
  • Cheese: Add ½ to 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese to the recipe for a delicious cheesy corn casserole.
  • Extra sweet: Add ¼ cup sugar for extra sweetness.
  • With a kick: Add a little bit of canned green chiles (or a whole can if you are feeling spicy).

How to Make Jiffy Cornbread Casserole

Making the casserole is as easy as mixing the 6 ingredients together in a large mixing bowl and baking in an 8 x 8 casserole dish as directed in the recipe card below.

That is it!

How to Make Jiffy Cornbread Casserole in the Slow Cooker

Add the combined ingredients to a lightly greased crockpot and cook for about 2-3 hours on high or 4 hours on low. The center will be set when the casserole is done.


Refrigerator: Cover cooled leftovers with plastic wrap or place in an airtight container and refrigerate for 3-4 days. Reheat for about 10-15 minutes in a 300° F oven, or briefly in the microwave.

Freezer: For best taste, I recommend NOT freezing this recipe, as it can change the texture.

What to Serve with Corn Casserole

This jiffy corn casserole goes great with turkey (think classic Thanksgiving dinner), meatloaf, roast chicken, chicken tenders, crockpot chili, mashed potatoes, and buttermilk biscuits. But you can pair it with whatever your heart desires!


Can you make cornbread casserole ahead of time?

Yes, this recipe is great for making ahead! This recipe can be made up to 24 hours before baking. Prep ahead then cover the baking dish tightly with plastic wrap and place it in the refrigerator. When you are ready to bake the next day, uncover the dish and allow it to sit on the countertop for about 30 minutes before baking. This will help it come back to room temperature. Then bake as directed.

Can I double this recipe?

You sure can! To double the recipe double all the ingredients and bake in a 9 x 13 baking dish for about 55-65 minutes.

Where did the Jiffy corn casserole recipe originate?

Maybe it was on the box of Jiffy at one point? I am not sure where it originated… I just know that this is the absolute best corn casserole I have ever had.

  1. Thank you so much for this amazing recipe! Tasted really delicious and it’s easy to make! Highly recommended!

  2. This recipe has been in our family for over 50 years. Love it! A Thanksgiving tradition.

    1. I would bake 3 double batches in 9 x 13 baking pans. To do this simply double everything from the recipe above for each batch. Note that they will take longer to bake in a 9 x 13, about 55- 65 minutes. Enjoy!

  3. So you drain the cream style corn, but not the can of regular kernel can???
    “a can of sweet corn (kernal corn)
    a can of cream style corn, drained (creamed corn)”

  4. Ours is made a lil different. We used everything except the sour cream and we add an onion sauté…1 can of green chili peppers and cheese in tioy

      1. (Just to clarify) White corn is sweet also, i think it is probably sweeter than yellow corn. In FL there is a variety called Silver Queen I had years ago, and it was the best! I use frozen white corn in a Lawry’s baked creamed corn casserole recipe and it is great.

  5. I have made this many years and have started substituting can cream style corn for the freezer cream stlyle as it is more fresh

    1. You are correct, Jiffy does make other mixes. For this recipe, you will need Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix. You can see a picture of the package under the ingredient section of the blog post.
