Cornbread Pudding Ingredients

Ahhh don’t we all love a recipe with a short list of ingredients?!

  • Eggs – I always use “large” eggs
  • Sour Cream – Use full-fat sour cream in this recipe
  • Butter – I use salted butter
  • Whole Kernel Corn – If you have sweet corn in the freezer, you can certainly use that instead of the canned corn! Simply thaw out and drain any excess moisture. You’ll need 1 1/2 cups.
  • Cream Style Corn
  • Cornbread Mix – I’ve always used Jiffy brand for this recipe as they’re the perfect sized boxes!
