Katie’s Cornbread Casserole

You do not want to confuse Katie’s Cornbread Casserole with your average run-of-the-mill, boring, dried out cornbread. Each spoonful is a slightly sweet, slightly savory bite of creamy deliciousness.

And do you see the browned edges in the photo above?  Those crispy little bites are crunchy, buttery perfection.  It’s difficult to refrain from slicing off all the browned edges and hoarding them for myself.

A few pantry staples added to a humble little blue box of Jiffy Mix cornbread is all you’ll need.  This dish comes together FAST in a single bowl, making clean-up a breeze.  Additionally, this recipe also earns bonus points for being a make ahead dish that you can serve warm or at room temperature.

  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 box Jiffy cornbread mix
  • 1 can (16 oz) creamed corn
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 cup sour cream (I use reduced fat sour cream)
  • 1/2 cup corn optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place butter stick in a 2 quart oven-proof casserole dish and heat in oven until melted.

  3. While butter is melting, combine cornbread mix, creamed corn, beaten egg, sour cream and corn (if using) in a medium bowl. Stir just until combined.

  4. Remove casserole dish from oven after butter has melted. VERY CAREFULLY (you don't want to splash hot butter on yourself), add the cornbread mixture to the casserole dish.
  5. Bake for approximately 30-35 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  6. May be served warm or cold. Refrigerate leftovers.

  1. I’ve done this for years. Mix the butter in and pour into a crockpot. You can double even triple the recipe but if going that high use a shallow pan or small muffin tins for individual servings (this also gives crispy edges). The only thing I do different is add a little sugar for southern cornbread type taste and I add shredded cheese, any kind you like. (I use a shredded Mexican blend). I don’t measure when I cook but 1 reg. size bag for two batches works great.

    • I haven’t made this dish in the slow cooker, but it seems like a great way to free up some oven space. LOVE the addition of a little sugar cheese. Thanks for stopping by, June!

  2. I don’t understand why you’ve had so much trouble with this recipe. It has worked for me for many years. Cooking time needs to be adjusted for high altitude.
    Love, Katie

  3. This recipe is awful…. It took double the baking time. Would not recommend this recipe to anyone.

  4. I melted the butter and mixed in batter! *gulp* waiting now to see ifit works this way. Read instructions wrong. I have to leave in 20 minutes for the pot luck. . I will report back

  5. Your Cornbread Casserole looks wonderful! Your post is awesome and thanks so much for sharing it with us at Full Plate Thursday. Hope you are having a great day and come back to see us real soon!

  6. Sandra says:

    I’m having a fish fry. Could I double or triple this, mix it in a large foil container, and stick it in the oven???

    • Katie’s Cornbread Casserole will pair very well with a fish fry, Sandra. While I haven’t doubled this recipe, I don’t know why you couldn’t try it. I think you will have better results with a shallow pan. If you want the crispy edges you will need to mix it in a bowl, then carefully pour into the melted butter. If you decide to double the recipe I’d love to hear your results. Thanks for stopping by!
