Easy Baked Corn

This is another one of the recipes my grandma has passed down to our family. Not sure where it originated from, but she has had it since my mom was a little girl. I had never tried it before, but after months of her persisting me, I decided to give it a go. I had previously never heard of “baked” corn and was a little nervous to try it. However, it was delicious and super easy to make.

My husband loves corn and so this recipe is definitely on our side dish rotation now. Our kids even gobbled their serving up! If you are looking for a new side dish or a new way to dress up corn (or maybe you have already tried making a version of this recipe and I am just way behind the times) give this recipe a try!

    This looks like the best corn dish! Something in between corn casserole and a corn-ish souflee. I love the puff that the eggs give it. Pinned! Seriously want to make this one!

  2. Tara

    Yum, we love corn, I'm excited to give this recipe a try!

  3. Beva

  4. Matt Robinson


    Your grandma has some seriously crazy good recipes. This would be gobbled down here too and I can't wait to try it. Have a great weekend!

  5. Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche

    Oooh this looks so good! I LOVE corn, I'd happily add it to pretty much any dish, but I love that you made a feature of it :)

  6. Sharon

    I have made this corn dish for years. My recipe is called Southern Corn Pudding.

  7. Emily @ Life on Food

    I love corn dishes. It is the one thing my husband doesn't like so I know if I made this it would be all to myself.

  8. Liz


    I make this tonight and the family loved it! Thank you!

  9. Anna

    This looks delicious! How much frozen or fresh corn would you use in place of the canned?

    1. Veronica

      Anna, a 15 ounce can of corn contains 1 and 3/4 cup of corn. If you are using frozen, thaw it before measuring and drain the liquid.

  10. Millie


    Thank you for the wonderful recipes. I cannot wait to make this.

  11. Jean

    Hi Nikki!

    Wondering if you've ever made this for a larger group? Say 8 - 10? Wondering what pan size I would need if I doubled it...maybe 8x8? Thanks so much! I love your blog and recipes!

  13. Ericka


    Love this recipe! I cooked it today 7/15/2014 and it came out great. I adjusted the amounts because I used 3 cans instead of two for the corn. I also added some cheese on top when baking it. I wish I could post a picture but cant. But the kids love it so its a keeper.

  14. Tara W.


    My older brother and I made this recipe, but we added bread crumbs on the top and it is delicious!

  15. DonnaMaree Austin

    I have been making a version of this for over a decade, can find it on allrecipes as cornbread.casserole

    1. SoWeGA

      This recipe looks similar and just as delicious but it's not cornbread casserole. As others have mentioned, this is more like a corn pudding.

  16. Eni

    Can I make this with frozen corn? I was just thinking I didn't have any canned corn in the house and wanted to make this tonight! Looks good!

  17. Amy


    My aunt has made something very similar to this for as long as I can remember. We call it corn pudding and it is one of my favorite sides! She fixes it every holiday get together and there's never any left! Good choice!

  18. Amanda

    Can I double this recipe and make it in a 9x9 pyrex?

  19. mary ann

    Similar to my recipe:
    1 stick of butter
    1 small carton of sour cream
    1 can corn drained
    1 can creamed corn
    1 box jiffy corn muffin mix
    Preheat oven to 350
    Melt butter in 9x9 pan
    Stir in remaining ingredients and bake for 40 minutes or until set.

  20. aundrea

    I have made this several times! Thanks for sharing. Its delicious!

  21. David

    Would the recipe change at all using frozen corn? Fresh corn shaved of the cob?

  22. Nellie

    We call this corn pudding. My family loves it

  23. Ann

    Can corn starch be used in place of flour to make this recipe gluten free? Thank you!

  24. Peggy

    This is also known as scalloped corn. You can also use 1 can creamed corn and 1 can regular corn, just reduce the amount of milk to make up for the liquid in the creamed corn.

  25. Helen A Veasley

    5 Star!!

  26. Debra


    I made it tonight. Loved it. Easy to make.

  27. Evelyn

    This is also called Corn Casserole and Corn Souffle and has been around for centuries. The cooks in Shakertown, now a preserved community and museum, served it to soldiers from the North and South during the Civil War when the troops camped out on their farmland. I use their recipe which can be made a day before, and does not require boiling anything. It is better than any other I have tried or made; including Paula Deen's version. They are still serving the centuries-old recipe at the sought-after restaurant in Pleasant Hill, Ky. I live in Orlando, but miss great Southern cooking found there.

  28. MeMaw

    Add jalapeños!!

  29. Sherri

    I am going to give this a try and compare.
    Grew up with this but made with 1 whole kernel, 1 cream style,1 egg, diced onion, salt and pepper,crushed crackers over top with dabs of butter and bake.

  30. phyliss curto

    Ive been making that for years,on holidays. But i use can cream (evaporated milk ) and cream corn.omg delish.
    We call it corn pudding

  31. Anita

    I grew up eating this and my Grandmother and my Mother always referred to it as scalloped corn. So yummy!

  32. Monika

    Sounds good, just wondering? Will it still work the same, by just mixing all the ingredients & baking.

  33. Sharon Brant


    bet this would be good with some grated cheese in it

  34. Sandy

    I have had corn prepared like this at a cookout and it was awesome. It looks wonderful I will be making this later on today.

  35. Diane


    I have made this several times. Try adding some chopped red pepper, and green chilils to it..... is delicious !




  37. Monica Rollins

    can u add cheese to this recipe?

  38. jessica


    Can I use water instead of milk

  39. Peggy Bolling


    On the easy baked corn recipe, is the all purpose flour or self rising?

    1. Chef in Training

      all purpose :)

  40. Megan

    Wasn't as good as I thought it would be.

  41. kghezzi

    My mom added oysters..

  42. Millie

    So glad to see a corn casserole that is not loaded in cheese. Very good. Thank you!

  43. Beth

    This is absolutely delicious!!! Being it is corn season, I tried it with fresh corn. I made a second one using canned corn. hey, it was for a potluck! it was such a big hit and everyone liked the fresh corn one better so I am going to freeze some in portion baggies for this winter. Thanks!

  44. LindaS


    This corn recipe looks delicious! I want to make it with local summer corn!

  45. Ana

    If using fresh corn would I have to cook it on the cob first and then add it to recipe? Or can I add it uncooked? Thanks... with so much fresh corn available I'd love to try this recipe. Also I'm assuming if the recipe calls for "2 15 oz cans" which equal 1 3/4 cups that would make it 3 1/2 cups fresh... correct? Thanks!!!

  46. Jan


    I make this all the time....only I add bacon...yummy !!

  47. Della Williamson


    Love corn. A new way to fix. Looks like a winner. Thanks. We are going to try this week end.

  48. J Hoffman

    I was surprise when I found this recipe . My mother has been making this recipe for years she turned it over to my wife and now we enjoy it every holiday . My wife and I have been married for 35 years so you know how long we have had the recipe in the family , that's why I was shocked when I seen the recipe on the Internet .

  49. Vicky

    This would be tasty with grilled chicken and ribs.

  50. Carrie


    This looks delicious. I will be making it. TY!

  51. Beth Wilder


    This is also called Corn Pudding and with a few modifications could be a corn souffle. Delicious in all its different ways.

  52. Rick

    Just made this it's VERY GOOD, definetly will have plenty more times.Had a similar growing up but it had crumbled crackers on top.

  53. Carol


    I've made this for years for Thanksgiving and other times throughout the year.... Got my recipe years ago from the Michigan Growers....it's instructions we just to put the drained corn in the greased pan, slightly beat the eggs, melt the butter, then mix it all together...and pour over the corn.... it's always turned out great! Just thought I'd mention to save steps of boiling the milk and making the white sauce first.... it's really not needed... but it's a wonderful recipe!

  54. Eileen

    Shouldn't the milk, butter, sugar & flour mixture COOL DOWN before adding in the eggs?

  55. mrs.yardley pal


    I made this recipe today,but I tweeked it a little by adding 4 green onions sliced up, green and white portions.I also added 500 grams of boneless chicken breasts ( cut into cubes )marinated with ginger-garlic paste,salt and pepper.I topped it all off with cubed Velveeta cheese.The aromas wafting out of the oven are simply divine !!!!!

  56. Linda

    That looks like what my grandma and mom called corn scallop , it was cooked the same way. I haven't tried this recipe yet but when I do I will surely do the pucture and let you know.
    Thanks for the recipe , can't wait

  57. Sudarshana


    I made this today, and my husband loved it.

  58. David Knight

    We ate this all the time while I was growing up only my Mom would put link sausage on top and it would be the main course.

  59. Sharon Rasmussen

    Did you use all purpose or self rising flour? Didn't want to ruin what looks like a very tasty recipe. I've never seen this one but it sounds a little like the one my mom used to make with Nifty corn muffin mix. Thanks for sharing.

  60. Sharon Rasmussen

    "Jiffy" not Nifty, lol

    1. Sharon Rasmussen

      Didn't notice somebody already asked about the flour.

  61. Kelly Miller

    Can you make this ahead of time?

  62. Jayne

    Thanks - from Australia - for this recipe Nikki. It's a regular Christmas dish for my family.

  63. Pat Ford


    Can the easy baked corn be made a day or so ahead and then baked?

  64. Lee Ferreira


    This is yummy!!!Used frozen corn

  65. Viki

    Delicious & easy

  66. Rachell Powers

    Do you this as corn bread? Then serve with dinner or soup?

  67. Lita Watson


    Such a creamy baked corn! It's much easier than i thought. How long will this dish last in the refrigerator?

  68. Jarrid

    Can you use buttermilk in place of milk?!?
