Is corn casserole the same thing as Corn Pudding?
I’ve realized since we shared this recipe that many people call this corn pudding. My husband loves pudding so he’s totally on board with this. This recipe does have an almost creamy texture from the cream corn, butter and sour cream.
Call it either…corn casserole or corn pudding. It’s basically the same thing. We do have a recipe that we call “corn pudding”. It has more of a custard base than this recipe. Find the corn pudding casserole here.

In order to make this rich, buttery casserole, you’re going to throw all of those ingredients in a bowl and mix them up. Transfer the mixture to a greased 8×8 baking pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes.

Corn Casserole with Eggs
Mix in 2 eggs….this creates just a bit more of a lighter corn casserole.
Cheesy Corn Casserole
Add 1/2 to 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese….because cheese makes everything better, right?
Corn Casserole with Sugar
Add 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup sugar….this of course makes it a very sweet corn casserole. If you add the eggs and sugar, it almost takes like a corn cake and could be eaten for dessert!
Can I make corn casserole ahead of time?
Yes! Make this casserole up to 48 hours in advance. Mix up the casserole, place it in the baking dish and cover it with plastic wrap. When you are ready to bake it, remove it from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before you put it in the oven. Then bake as the recipe suggests.
**It might take a few extra minutes to bake since the casserole will be cold.**
How to Double Corn Casserole
We often double this recipe and bake it in a 9×13 pan. Depending on your oven, this may take an additional 15 minutes to bake, so plan accordingly.
Can you cook corn casserole in a crock pot?
Yes! Cook in a slow cooker on high for 2 1/2 hours or on low for 4 hours. All slow cookers heat differently so watch the casserole closely. If you double the recipe it may take longer to cook.
Does corn casserole need to be refrigerated?
Yes! If there are leftovers of corn casserole, put them in a storage container or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
Can I freeze a corn casserole?
For the best textured casserole, I would not recommend making this in advance and freezing the entire casserole to reheat later. If you have leftovers, they will freeze okay if you store it in an airtight container.
