Gluten-Free Corn Casserole

This is one of those recipes that is so easy to make and turns out so good that it just needs to be on your menu rotation. The delicious flavors of cornmeal and corn along with the creamy texture of a bread pudding are perfect. You might know this as corn pudding or corn casserole either way it goes with so many different meals.

And since this is gluten-free there’s no need for a jiffy corn muffin mix with this recipe. If you want to have the dry mix made ahead for convenience you can use my gluten-free corn muffin mix.

How to Make Gluten-Free Corn Casserole

Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 9 x 13 baking pan with cooking spray. 

In a large mixing bowl whisk together the dry ingredients. Then add the wet ingredients until combined.

Pour into greased baking pan and bake uncovered for 45-50 minutes or until center is set and golden brown. 

Ingredients for Gluten-Free Corn Casserole

Dry Ingredients:
2/3 cup gluten-free flour mix*
1/2 cup gluten-free cornmeal**
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Wet Ingredients:
1 15 oz can creamed corn
1 15 oz whole kernel corn
1 cup almond milk
1/2 cup buttery spread, melted, Smart Balance or Earth Balance
2 eggs, lightly whisked

Gluten-Free Flour

2/3 cup gluten-free flour mix: My favorite gluten-free & dairy-free flour blends to use are Pamela’s Artisan Blend and Better Batter. I’ve been using them both with great results. They are both a 1-1 substitute. If you use another gluten-free flour blend be sure that it contains xanthan gum. If not add 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum per cup of flour.

1/2 cup gluten-free cornmeal: I like to use Arrowhead Gluten-Free Organic Yellow Cornmeal and Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Cornmeal

Measuring flour by scraping with a knife.

Tips for Measuring Flour

When baking with gluten-free flour it’s really important how you measure the flour. Fluff first and then use the scoop and sweep method.  

  1. Fluff: Before measuring out your flour use a spoon or whisk to fluff the flour in the container- mostly the top portion. Be sure to fluff any flour that you will be measuring. To fluff simply stir around the flour lifting it and letting it fall back loosely.
  2. Scoop and sweep: Use a large spoon to lightly scoop up the flour and place it into the measuring cup. Fill up the measuring cup and then use the handle of the spoon and scrape it across the top of the measuring cup to level off the excess flour. Let the excess fall back into the container. You can also use a knife to level off the flour.

Dairy-Free Ingredients+ Options

Almond milk: or any other plant-based milk

Buttery Spread: The buttery spread that I use for this recipe is Smart Balance. Earth Balance could also be used. To soften buttery spread set it out on the counter for 10-15 minutes and it will get soft.

If you don’t need this to be dairy-free you can use regular milk or sour cream for the almond milk and regular butter for the buttery spread.

How to Store Leftovers

Keep covered in the refrigerator with plastic wrap or foil or in an airtight container for 3-4 days.

Can I Make It Ahead?

Yes, prepare and bake the corn casserole as directed and let it completely cool. Cover and refrigerate for up to two days. Reheat in a 350° for 15-25 until completely heated through.

Corn Casserole Variations

There are a lot of ways to change this casserole up. For more of a corn cake or corn pudding, you can add more sugar. For some added zing you can pick one or all of the following add-ins jalapenos, bacon, and cheese.

  • For a sweeter casserole add an additional 1/4 cup of sugar to the mixture.
  • Add sliced jalapeno slices to the top of the casserole.
  • Add a 4 oz. can of chopped chiles
  • Add 1 cup of shredded dairy-free cheddar cheese to the mixture
  • Add 1/3 cup crumbled cooked bacon
  • Add a second 15 oz can of whole corn kernels.
