If you grew up in the South, chances are you have a soft spot in your heart for cornbread. Even if you didn’t, cornbread is a classic American side dish that is so easy to make and requires very little effort to put together. More often than not, it’s served with a host of other comfort foods that many of us know and love, generally things like pulled pork, fried chicken or mac and cheese.

Anyone who loves cornbread is going to be a big fan of the recipe we’re making today. Although traditional cornbread has a mostly savory taste, we’re going to do a sweet corn spoon bread that you can eat right out of the pan you bake it in. While it goes well with all the same dishes that cornbread does, it tastes just a little bit sweeter… and even more delicious. So let’s get started.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 box of corn muffin mix
  • 1 can of creamed corn
  • 1 can of whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 1 stick of unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • pepper

Here’s what you do:

1. To get started, preheat your oven to 375 degrees and grease up an 8×8-inch baking dish with butter or non-stick spray. Alternatively, if you have a miniature cast iron skillet of roughly that size, you can use that as well.

2. Next, get out a large bowl and pour in your corn muffin mix, sugar, salt and pepper. Stir that together roughly before adding the creamed corn, drained corn kernels, sour cream, melted butter and eggs. Keep stirring it all together until it’s just incorporated and forms a shaggy dough.

3. When that’s done, pour the mixture into your baking dish or skillet to fill it up. When the oven is hot enough, throw the dish in and let it bake for 40 to 45 minutes.

4. After the time is up, take the dish out of the oven and use a toothpick to make sure it’s cooked all the way through. If it looks good, pull it out and let it cool off for about 10 minutes. When it’s ready, get a big serving spoon to scoop the bread out and you’re ready to eat!

Like we said, this recipe is just as easy and satisfying as a classic side of cornbread is. Still, some of the added ingredients take it up a notch. The added creaminess and sweetness in this recipe is sure to satisfy even the pickiest palate. To really bring it all together, serve it with some typical comfort food on the side and top the bread off with some extra butter and honey while it’s still hot!

Although the above recipe is relatively straightforward, you can put your own twist on it by adding in some spices as well. For a slightly different version, try adding a little bit of paprika or cinnamon to the mix. On the other hand, you could also add some cranberries for a little bit of tartness. We leave the details up to you—let us know what you think!
