So, if you are looking for another delicious and slightly unique Thanksgiving recipe, you need to try this one. It is definitely a more southern dish because it provides a nice sweet flavor to the corn based recipe.

It is so good, you might even think of it as a dessert. That is exactly why I never have a hard time trying to get my pickiest eaters to finish this dish, they even ask for more!

This is a great side dish for Thanksgiving dinner or a great recipe for any other day. I grew up having this at holiday dinners but you really can have it any day of the year. This is an easy side dish to whip up for all of your family members with chili on a cold day or to serve at the Thanksgiving table.

This delicious recipe requires a 9 x 13 baking dish, non-stick cooking spray, a large or small mixing bowl, hand or stand mixer and a can opener. As for the ingredients you will need, melted butter, sugar, beat eggs, sour cream, cornbread muffin mix, whole milk, a can of whole kennel corn, and cream-style canned corn. These simple ingredients mix together to create a family favorite for everyone at the dinner table. The best part is that most of these ingredients are pantry staples that you might already have at your house. This easy recipe is the perfect complement to any dinner and will be a huge hit.

One of my favorite things to do during thanksgiving is pick out at least one new recipe to make along with some of our traditional ones. Take a look at these great recipes like our pumpkin sheet cake, slow cooker cheesy potatoes, 5 minute orange jello salad, which are all great dishes and desserts to serve for Thanksgiving!

If you love cornbread, then you are going to like this corn pudding casserole recipe.

Prep Time 20 minutes mins

Cook Time 45 minutes mins

Total Time 1 hour hr 5 minutes mins



  • ½ cup unsalted butter softened
  • cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ounces cornbread/muffin mix 1 package, I used Jiffy
  • ½ cup milk
  • 15 ounces canned corn drained
  • 15 ounces cream style corn undrained


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  • Spray 9×13" baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.

  • In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

  • Add eggs in one at a time, beating well after adding each one.

  • Beat in sour cream.

  • Add in muffin mix and milk, mix well.

  • Fold in the corn.

  • Pour mixture into prepared 9×13" pan. Bake uncovered for 40-45 minutes or until set and lightly brown.



This recipe is not supposed to be the texture of cornbread, but more of a bread pudding. The middle may not be all the way set up, but it will continue to “set” after it’s done cooking.

If it’s too sweet for you, you can leave out the sugar.

If you want to make it a Tex-Mex dish, add a 4 ounce can of diced green chilies or diced jalapenos and 1 cup of shredded Mexican cheese to the batter.

    I’ve been making almost this same recipe for 45 years . Just substitute 1 cup grated cheddar cheese for the butter.

  2. Nikki Walters says:

    My Mom made this Corn Casserole for many years and NEVER USED ANY Eggs, sugar or milk ...omit these from this recipe. And you've got a great Corn Pudding Casserole that graced many a church funeral dinner tables. Anytime passed away my Mom's Corn Casserole was the first dish to cross the thresh hold at Our United Methodist Church Kitchen.

  3. Nancy Scaramuzzo says:

    I loved this recipe so much! I made it for Thanksgiving and was asked to double the recipe for Christmas!

  4. Laurie says:

    Can this be frozen to eat at a later time?

  5. Momma Cyd says:

    It should work ok. It's best when not frozen. It's pretty moist so it may not hold up as well after being frozen and then thawed again.

  6. Isabel M says:

    I have made this twice. For some reason, it was way too sweet the second time and I had already cut the sugar in half. Will definitely make again but with no sugar.
