Sweet Corn Casserole from Milk Cow Kitchen by MaryJane Butters

As promised! Okay this is so easy. SO easy. And if you can, let it cool a bit before you eat it – I burned my tongue!! So delicious. AND gluten free! Way to go MaryJane – another winner!


  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or thawed frozen corn, divided
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 4 ounce can diced green chilies (can sub 1/2 cup fresh poblano chile, finely diced)
  • 1/2 cup cooked ham, cut into 1/4 inch cubes (optional)
  • 1 cup cornmeal ( I used gluten free cornmeal)
  • 2/3 cup white rice flour
  • 1 T baking powder


    1. Preheat oven to 350. Generously butter and 8 x 8 clear glass baking dish. Recipe easily doubled by using a 9 x 13 clear baking dish and doubling the ingredients.
    2. Combine 1 cup corn and eggs in a food processor; blend.  Transfer to a large bowl.  Add butter, sour cream, sugar, and salt.  mix thoroughly.  Add remaining 1/2 cup corn, chilies, and ham (optional); mix.
    3. In another bowl, combine cornmeal, flour and baking powder
    4. Combine wet and dry ingredients; stir until just blended.
    5. Transfer mixture to prepared baking dish.  Bake until casserole is puffed in center, golden brown around the edges and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 50 minutes (60 if doubling the recipe)

      Living in Tennessee, I should probably know how to make a corn casserole! I love the little dish with the green chiles in them … beautiful!

      Yum!! I love corn casseroles. What I wouldn’t give to have a sweet cow like the one pictured on the cover. 🙂

      This recipe WAS SO GOOD!!!!!! I used some of my Hatch Green Chiles from New Mexico that my folks sent me. It was fabulous! I’m loving these recipe posts! – Dori –
