I like my cornbread sweet, and after tinkering with this recipe for a while, I feel like I have finally mastered it. I didn’t grow up in the south, but I always liked sweet cornbread. The sour cream gives this a nice texture, and the corn gives it the perfect texture. Another note. This is best served cold, and I find it’s best to make it the night before and let it sit in the refrigerator overnight.
Best Sweet Cornbread Casserole
There are a lot of reasons I believe this is the best. It tastes great. I have tried a lot of cornbread, and it doesn’t get any better than this. Sweet with a great texture from the corn kernels.
Note I usually use the generic brand sour cream, and I like Green Giant creamed corn. You need one of each regular can of corn and one creamed corn can. And yes, I use the Jiffy corn muffin mix. I know I always say I like my kitchen to be scratch, but why mess with a good thing?
I used a 9 x 7 glass pan to bake the cornbread. I prefer a larger pan, so the bread is not as thick. If you like your cornbread slightly mushy, go with the 9 x 7. I have not tried making this as a muffin, but if you do, let me know how long you cooked this for. I bake at 350 for 1 Hour.Print

If you like softer mushier cornbread, do not drain the corn and use a 9 x 7 pan.
I prefer this to sit over night in the refrigerator and serve it cold. The flavor solidifies over night and it always tastes better the next day and if you eat this warm out of the oven like most baked goods it’s not as good.
