Corn casserole is comfort food at its best. Slightly sweet, creamy, and studded with corn, this recipe is all of the comfort without all the guilt. Corn casserole typically contains lots of butter and sour cream. In this version, coconut oil and dairy-free yogurt achieve the moist texture without the dairy!

Dairy-free corn pudding is perfect for Thanksgiving but you can actually make it for any holiday or special dinner. It’s just too good to only make once a year. It’s tastes like a mash-up of sweet cornbread and corn pudding. In other words, it’s delicious!

Why You Need This Recipe

Key Ingredients

Whole corn kernels – Any brand of canned corn works great. Be sure to drain it for this recipe.

Creamed corn – Cream style corn is thick and sweet – perfect for a casserole. Check the label to make sure it’s gluten-free and dairy-free.

Dairy-free yogurt & lemon juice – This takes the place of sour cream and keeps the casserole moist and creamy.

Coconut oil – In place of butter, coconut oil keeps the pudding tender. You can also use vegan butter if you prefer.

Cornmeal – Typically corn casserole is made with a box of jiffy mix. I use cornmeal and gluten-free flour in place of box mix.

Gluten-free flour – I prefer Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 All Purpose Gluten Free Flour for it’s gluten-like taste and texture. You can find it at Walmart. Target, Sam’s Club, or Amazon.

Sugar – Two tablespoons are all you need to make it nice and sweet.

FAQs

Can I make this dairy-free corn casserole ahead of time?

Yes, make it the day before and then refrigerate the casserole. Reheat in the oven until warmed through – about 10 to 20 minutes. Alternatively you can make the batter ahead of time and refrigerate then bake as directed.

Can I freeze corn casserole?

Yes, but the corn casserole is much better freshly made. The texture is not the same as a fresh-baked one. To freeze, let the casserole cool completely and place in a freezer-safe container.
