What’s the difference between corn casserole and corn pudding?

Both dishes are quite similar and the names are sometimes used for the same recipe.

The primary difference is in the texture and consistency. A corn casserole is typically more firm and bread-like, as it often contains a higher proportion of cornmeal or cornbread mix.

Corn pudding is generally softer and creamier, often due to a higher amount of liquids like milk, water, or cream.

What do you serve with it?

Corn casserole pairs well with a variety of main dishes, because it has such a mild flavor. I like to serve it alongside some fried chicken, pork chops, or even a homestyle meatloaf

Top it will some BBQ pulled pork or chicken for a fun summer meal!

This is a great recipe to serve with green beans or roasted carrots.

How long does it last?

Once cooked, any leftover Jiffy cornbread casserole can last for up to 4-5 days in the refrigerator.

Be sure to store it in an airtight container.

Can I make it in advance?

Yes, you can prepare the casserole in advance.

Mix all the ingredients and put them in the greased baking dish, then cover and refrigerate it overnight.

When you’re ready to bake, let it sit at room temperature while the oven preheats and then bake as directed.

Note that it may need a few extra minutes in the oven if it’s going in cold.

Can I freeze Jiffy Cornbread Casserole?

Yes, you can freeze the corn casserole either before or after baking.

To freeze before baking: Combine all the ingredients in a freezer-safe dish, cover tightly with plastic wrap and aluminum foil, and freeze.

When ready to bake, thaw in the refrigerator overnight, then bake as directed.

Note it might need a little longer to bake if it’s still somewhat cold.

To freeze after baking: Bake and completely cool the cornbread casserole. Cover it tightly in a freezer-safe dish and freeze for up to 2 months.

When ready to eat, thaw overnight in the refrigerator. Then reheat in the oven at a low temperature (about 300°F) until it’s warmed through.

What can I use instead of Jiffy Corn Mix?

If you don’t have a box of Jiffy Mix, you can make your own. Combine the following to make the same as a 8.5 oz box of mix.

  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Can I double Jiffy Cornbread Casserole?

Yes, you can double the recipe. Just be sure to use a larger casserole dish or break it into multiple dishes. 

If using a larger dish, you might need to cook it for longer.

The cornbread casserole should be golden brown on top and set in the middle. If it’s still jiggly, it needs more time.

Can I make this in a slow cooker?

Yes, you can!  Just mix all the ingredients together as normal. Prepare a slow cooker bowl with a liner or nonstick cooking spray. Pour in the mixed casserole batter. 

Cook it on high for about 2-3 hours or low for 4-6 hours. Just like with oven baking, you’ll know it’s done when the middle is set and not jiggly.

Note that the top won’t get as browned as it does in the oven.

Best Casserole Tips

  • Butter the baking dish for crispy edges.
  • Use room temperature eggs for better mixing.
  • Combine all the wet ingredients first before adding to the cornbread mix.
  • You can leave out the eggs but it will have a more pudding like texture.
  • Spice it up with chopped green chilies or finely diced fresh jalapeno peppers.
  • Try Pepper Jack cheese for a kick.
  • For more flavor, switch up the corn for Southwest, Roasted, or Mexicorn.
  • Sweeten it up with a teaspoon or two of sugar.
  • Mix in your favorite BBQ rub, cajun seasoning, or taco seasoning.
  • Instead of the casserole dish, bake these as muffins!
  • If using the gluten free Jiffy mix, add in 3/4 cup milk.
  • The middle should be set and not jiggly. That’s how you know it’s done.
  • Make it meal by stirring in a pound of cooked ground beef or ground turkey.
