Sweetcorn Bake

I got this recipe from my SIL Trish, who keeps me in good supply of new recipes to try.  Thanks Trishy!  This is a great side dish for with a braai (barbecue).  The lovely light texture of this dish reminds me of a soufflé and has the same rise and fall as a soufflé too.  There are a myriad of other ingredients you could add; like parsley, mustard powder, finely chopped crispy bacon, sautéed mushroom, or even using a different or stronger cheese; you get the idea.

Sweetcorn Bake


1x 410g tin creamed sweetcorn
2 eggs
3 tbsp cake flour
1 tsp baking powder
45g butter melted
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
Salt and black pepper to taste
1 cup cheddar cheese grated – divided


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Mix all the ingredients plus half the cheese together in a bowl.
  3. Pour into a prepared pyrex dish and sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
  4. Bake for 30 – 40 minutes until golden brown and set.

  1. Can you believe Best Friend and Big Man are both sweetcorn haters? Not good news, but then again if I made this, I think I could easily rise to the challenge of working my way through the whole thing (can you tell I love sweetcorn?)!

  2. Mandy I love these kinds of side dishes! You are so right, great with a barbecue and I love this served at holiday meals too. Yummy! Hope you’re doing we’ll my friend!

    • Hi Karista, glad you like the dish. All great this side, nearly sorted with the house and back to normal. I often think of your chicks and wonder how big they are getting. Have a beautiful day. 🙂 xo

    • Hi Michael, I am sure you could. You would have to compensate with a liquid of sorts to match the creamed style corn though. Let me know if you give it a try using fresh corn. Have a happy day. 🙂

  3. Now this is something really different for me to try & it looks so easy. I love how it can just be popped in the oven w/o a lot of fuss & if you put bacon & cheese in anything in this house, it’s a guaranteed hit. I’m putting the ingredients on next weeks list for sure.

  4. At first I thought it was corn muffins specially when I saw braai in your statement but its not, it looks even better and moist. This would definitely go well with any barbecue

  5. Yum!
    It looks terrific Mandy. I remember that as a child I hated creamed sweetcorn, that’s why now I make sure to never buy it, but this recipe is worthy and perfect to get over my childhood phobia 😉

  6. This is one of my favorite things to eat, but I can never get it to set. After trying several recipes I find that it always turns out runny and gross… It has to be my fault. I will try again with your recipe and see if I have success. I hope! 🙂 ~Lynda

  7. I have been looking for this recipe for YEARS! Lost it in a moving episode and so happy to have found it again. Thank-you for posting 🙂

  8. I would have loved to post a photo! I made a Marvelous Sweetcorn Bake!! I always made this dish. my kids would eatit just as is or smear Apricot jam/ Marmite or Bovril on top! With our move to Mozambique, some of my recipe books stayed behind in SA. Today I was looking for the recipe and yours are almost exactly the same as the one I had. I am going to dish up now..Bon Appetit!!

    • What a grand idea about smearing some marmalade or Bovril over the top. I have just got back from visiting Maputo with my husband. He was there on business so I tagged along for the ride. Thanks for stopping by Tersia, I hope you enjoyed the bake as much as when you made it back home. Have a wonderful day. 🙂 xo
