My grandparents raised corn on their Tennessee farm, and it was absolutely delicious. Every summer, I think I tried to eat half of the corn in the field. One of my grandparents would bring some in (along with quite a few other veggies) for dinner each night. Being a city girl, I was quite fascinated with the idea of going out to the garden and coming in with food instead of having to run down to the grocery store.

This recipe also calls for sour cream, which not only adds flavor but makes this a moist cornbread recipe–no more dry cornbread!

How To Make Jiffy Cornbread With Creamed Corn

  1. Get started by adding the melted butter, creamed corn, and whole-kernel corn to a medium-sized bowl. (Drain the juice off of the whole kernel corn before adding to the bowl).
  2. Next, add the boxes of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix and mix together. 
  3. Spoon the sour cream into the bowl and mix together. You can use plain Greek yogurt instead if you’re not a big fan of sour cream.
  4. Pour everything into a 9″ x 9″ greased casserole dish and bake for 50-55 minutes. You can also use a cast iron skillet for the recipe, like the one I used.

When the moist Jiffy cornbread recipe is done, the top will be golden brown. The center might still be a little bit moist.

When you take it out of the oven, spoon a little butter on top, and it will melt and taste amazing. My mouth starts to water just thinking about it. Some people have commented that they love to add jalapeños to the mix, so you can give that a try, as well.

Absolutely! There’s nothing better than mixing cream-style corn and/or whole kernels together for a wonderful side dish that works well at any family gathering, potluck, office party, or just at dinnertime.

Is Cornbread Made From Corn?

Yes. Dried corn is ground up to make the cornmeal, which is one of the main ingredients in cornbread.

Is Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix the Same as Jiffy Cornbread Mix?

According to the Jiffy Cornbread people, the vegetarian corn muffin mix is made with vegetable shortening, which is the only difference between the two.

What Goes Well with Jiffy Cornbread with Creamed Corn?

I love adding simple recipes to the table, such as Southern homemade butter beans on the side, as well as cheesy diced baked potatoes, or some slow cooker glazed carrots with brown sugar.

If you’re looking for a delicious main dish, give the pesto chicken, baked buttermilk chicken strips, or moist baked chicken breast recipe a try.

Why Does Jiffy Cornbread Crumble, And How Do You Prevent This From Happening?

Cornbread, by nature, is crumbly. By adding moisture to the recipe, it will be less crumbly. Sour cream, vegetable oil, Greek yogurt, and creamed corn are all great ways to add moisture to the recipe.

Does Cornbread With Creamed Corn Need To Be Refrigerated?

I would refrigerate the cornbread with creamed corn because this recipe contains sour cream. Make sure you have it in an airtight container or covered with plastic wrap.

Why aren’t eggs added to the jiffy cornbread casserole?

Julie Pollitt

Sunday 14th of April 2024

There can be a few reasons. In this case, eggs will make it more cake-like and I didn't want it to be cake-like, so I left out the eggs.

No egg? Every recipe I've seen has an egg. Does it work fine without it?

Julie Pollitt

Friday 12th of April 2024

No egg! It doesn't hold together like a solid piece of cornbread, but it is delicious.

Do you have to use sour cream or greek yogurt,i can not have sour cream or the yogurt

Julie Pollitt

Wednesday 28th of February 2024

Hi Elaine,

You don't have to use either one. It just won't be quite as moist. You could try some mayonnaise or buttermilk. I would use 1 cup of mayonnaise if you use that. If you use buttermilk, I would use 1/2 cup of buttermilk. If not, you can make it without sour cream. Hope you love it!
