If you’re looking for a last minute Thanksgiving recipe, I wanted to share with you a recipe that has been in my family for many years! Corn soufflé is something that always brings back the best memories. It came from my late great aunt who made this her signature dish during the holidays. It was always one of my favorites!

This recipe is very similar to corn pudding, but even those vary from recipe to recipe. You could call the consistency close to a soft, moist cornbread but even that does not describe it perfectly so we call it a soufflé because its texture resembles that of one: light, airy, soft and moist. 

Corn Soufflé

I sometimes like to play around with the sweetness level of this recipe and I encourage you to adjust it to your liking. Since the muffin mix is already sweetened, you can leave out the additional sugar. But just know that the sweetness level will be a a tad less than an actual corn muffin. This because of the added ingredients like sour cream. Jiffy is typically the corn muffin mix used in these recipes, but I prefer to use Krusteas honey cornbread mix. With that I sometimes add a tablespoon or two more sugar to give it a little more love! 

This is super easy to throw together as you will see. I recommend baking them in muffin tins if your looking to significantly cut down on cook time! I’m cutting this post super short because, if you’re like me it’s about time to start prepping for the meal! Hope you all enjoy this and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
