A Corny Holiday


All month long I’m going to be hosting the posts of other people as part of my 2015 Giftmas Blog Tour. All the guest bloggers are welcome to write about anything they’d like so long as their post touched on a December holiday in some way, no matter how tangentially. The blog tour extends beyond my blog as well, and I will do my best to link to each external post from the here and share them on social media using the hashtag #GiftmasTour.

But wait! There’s more!

We’re also giving away a whole whack of prizes (check out the list here) which you can enter to win using the Rafflecoper code below. Whatever December holiday you celebrate (or don’t) winning a stack of books will make it better!


A Corny Holiday

by Brenda Stokes Barron

Normally, I shy away from blog tours because I’m so strapped for time. But when Rhonda asked if I wanted to be a part of this project, I had to say yes. It’s the holidays and sharing in the fun and festivities while celebrating being writers and being a part of this awesome community was just too appealing to pass up.

While the temptation to wax nostalgic is strong this time of year, I’ll resist and offer a recipe instead. It’s simple and tasty, though full of butter. So, it’s not healthy at all. But…umm…yum?

Corn Casserole Souffle

A weird name for a recipe, I know, but it’s really a combination of my mom’s recipe (corn casserole) and one I found online (corn souffle) that I’ve been making for several years now. It’s rich, filling, and I could eat it pretty much forever.


4 oz butter (one stick, melted)

1 egg

8 oz sour cream

1 can of whole kernel corn (drained)

1 can of cream style corn

1 pkg of corn muffin mix

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine butter, egg, corn, cream style corn, sour cream, and corn muffin mix in a bowl.
  3. Grease 9″ x 9″ baking dish and pour mixture into it.
  4. Bake for 45 minutes or until you can poke the center with a toothpick and it comes out clean.

Simple, easy, and super delicious. It ends up with the consistency of pudding and bread, is sweet and savory, and a great complement to other holiday dishes.
