Jiffy Corn Casserole

One of my favorite things about winter time is sitting down together as a family around the dinner table with a hot home-cooked meal. It’s this time of year when we like to pull out all of the classic family recipes such as meatloafbaked chickenMexican soups….good, simple comfort food.

When we sit down together to eat, this simple Jiffy Corn Casserole with 5 ingredients  is often on the table because it is so simple and versatile. It’s a holiday staple as easy as green bean casserole.

This recipe was given to me by a friend, but if you’ve ever heard of Paula Deen’s corn casserole, it’s very similar.

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. We do have a recipe that we call “corn pudding casserole” which has more of a custard base than this recipe.

Jiffy Corn Casserole Ingredients

You’ll need just 5 ingredients for this easy corn casserole recipe:

ingredients for jiffy corn casserole on a table
  1. 1 can of corn, drained
  2. 1 can of creamed corn
  3. 1 cup of sour cream
  4. 1 stick of melted butter (½ cup)
  5. 1 box of Jiffy Corn Muffin mix

There are many variations of this corn casserole. You can add egg, a touch of sugar, or cheese. But in our favorite? These 5 simple ingredients.

Easy, right?

How to Make Corn Casserole with Jiffy Mix

Make this family favorite corn recipe in just 2 steps:

  • Throw all of those ingredients in a large bowl and mix. *Do not use the ingredients on the back of the jiffy box mix. Just the dry mix.*
  1. Transfer the mixture to a greased 8×8″ casserole dish and bake at 350ºF for about 45-50 minutes. The exact baking time will depend on the exact size pan you use, so just be sure to watch the casserole closely. You’ll know it is done when the center is completely set.

Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix Substitute

What happens if you can’t find jiffy corn muffin mix? Use a corn muffin mix substitute you can use instead.

Recipe Variations

  • Corn Casserole with Eggs. Mix in 2 eggs….this creates just a bit more of a lighter corn casserole.
  • Cheesy Corn Casserole. Add ½ to 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese….because cheese makes everything better, right?
  • Corn Casserole with Sugar. Add ¼ cup to ½ cup sugar depending on the sweetness of the corn….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!

Make Ahead Instructions

Make this creamy jiffy corn 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.

**For best results, remove the casserole 1 hour before baking to take the chill off.**

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you double this recipe?

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.

How do you make this casserole in the slow cooker?

Save oven space by cooking in a slow cooker on high for 2 ½ hours or on low for 4 hours. Each crock pot heats differently so watch the casserole closely. If you double the recipe it may take longer to cook.

Can I freeze corn casserole?

For the best textured casserole, I would not recommend making this in advance and freezing the entire casserole to reheat later.
However, if you have leftovers, they will freeze okay if you store it in an airtight container.

This Jiffy corn casserole is truly thanksgiving dinner and Christmas dinner staple for our family.  We hope that it becomes a favorite for your family holiday dinners, too!

  • 8 ounces Jiffy Corn Muffin mix dry mix only
  • 15 ounces whole kernel corn (drained)
  • 15 ounces creamed corn (not drained)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup melted butter


  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Spray an 8×8" baking pan with cooking spray.
  • In a bowl, mix the dry jiffy mix, drained corn, cream corn, sour cream and melted butter together and pour into a the prepared baking dish.
  • Cook uncovered for 45-50 minutes or until lightly golden brown.



  • Mix in 2 eggs….this creates just a bit more of a lighter corn casserole.
  • Add ½ to 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese….because cheese makes everything better, right?
  • Add ¼ cup to ½ 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!
  • Sour cream is best added into the mixture when it is not straight from the fridge. Set it at room temperature or warm it slightly in the microwave to take the chill off.
  • Frozen sweet corn kernels work well. I add about 12 ounces to this casserole in place of the canned corn.
  • If there are leftovers of corn casserole, put them in a storage container or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.

Really want to make this for Easter, never had before and going to try a test run this week. Can anyone tell me what adding the eggs do? Not sure what making a “lighter” casserole means. Does it make it more bread like? Any input or advice would be super helpful! Thank you

What a delicious corn recipe! I didn’t have Jiffy mix so I made up a copycat mixture. Like many here I added 1 egg and was glad I did. I wanted more of a light custard style. I used frozen corn kernels instead of canned, but otherwise followed the recipe. Using a 9×9 metal pan it took 55 minutes and the center was perfectly done. I think the people who are having problems with overly gooey middle should try a slightly larger pan, and a bit longer in the oven. When I tested mine at 45 minutes the center was… Read more »

I have made this a total of 5 times. First time I followed recipe exactly and ended up having to cook well over the recipe time. I started putting in at 425 same size pan as recipe and still have to cook over 2.5 hrs to get it even remotely close to done.

This recipe is perfect. Before serving it, I added a light layer of sugar (for extra sweetness) on top and torched it to make a brulee to crack up. It was a delicious Corn Brulee!

Its a really good recipe but I feel like no matter how long I end up cooking it, its still gooey and looks/feels undercooked. Maybe its just me? Still really tasty though!

Easter dinner my friend’s son (he has lots of money) decided he would hire a chef to prepare a leg of lamb dinner and all the fixings for 13 of the family. I had prepared this jiffy corn casserole for a prior family gathering so the hostess requested that I bring it for this meal as everyone enjoyed it. Well, there were lots of people preparing the meal in the kitchen and taking photos of all the presentations. So the meal was cold when served and only a teaspoon of gravy for the overcook leg of lamb but everyone praised… Read more »
