Corn Casserole ~ Southern Spoon Bread ~ Indian Pudding

Southern Spoon Bread has a rich and storied history believed to be of Native American origin and specifically the early Sewee tribe of South Carolina. The first printed version of this recipe appeared in Mary Randolph’s, The Virginia Housewife in 1828 entitled, Indian Pudding.

The Jiffy mix website calls their recipe Spoon Bread and is very similar to this recipe, but also calls for two eggs and the smaller (8 & 1/4 ounce) cans of corn and cream style corn.

    1. Thank you, Anne. I wanted to have it on my blog because sometimes I come here to get a recipe. That way I know I’ll have it when needed. 😊

  2. This is a staple at holiday dinners. Love corn casserole.

  3. A wonderfully easy and inexpensive dish. Could be a meal!

    1. Yes, I agree that this would make a meal, Cheryl. 😊

  4. That sounds great. Now if I could just find corn meal muffin mix. I might add some cut up pork sausage for my carnivore husband.

    God bless.

    1. Thank you, Jackie. Pork Sausage would be a great addition. And if you can’t find the corn muffin mix, here is a link to a copycat recipe of it.,of%20Jiffy%20corn%20muffin%20mix.

  5. This looks like the Paula Deen recipe I use and posted back in 2018. Yep I looked same one. Not that I make it anymore since the kids left home as it just makes too much for us. I leave out the cheese as I prefer it that way. I don't think the cheese adds anything to the taste and with the price of groceries now, why waste it on this?lol

    1. Agreed, Sluggy. It’s good without the cheese, so no need to add it. It’s optional though for those cheese fiends who want to add it. 😂
