My grandmother used to make this cheddar jalapeno spoonbread for Sunday dinners when I was a kid. Oh how I loved it and her house was the only place I got it, so I always went back for seconds. Grandma’s spoonbread is much more cornbread than corn pudding. Moist and delicious with lots of corn, cheese, and jalapenos, there’s just so much to love in this stuff!Super moist cornbread loaded with corn, cheese, and zesty jalapenos, it goes great with so many meals and is instantly addictive.

While I’m a fan of corn pudding, my husband and kids are not, so I’d never actually made this recipe at home until just a few months ago because I was certain my family wouldn’t like it. However, they too instantly shared my obsession with this hearty spoonbread. Ridiculously enough, I owe this recent discovery to a grocery store grab bag.Super moist cornbread loaded with corn, cheese, and zesty jalapenos, it goes great with so many meals and is instantly addictive.

Does your grocery store sell grab bags? My youngest son has recently become obsessed with them. He thinks that the surprise of what may be inside is the greatest thing about grocery shopping. Who can blame him really? He did pick one with a yard stick of bubble gum inside! That’s like winning the lottery for an 8 year old. LOL.Super moist cornbread loaded with corn, cheese, and zesty jalapenos, it goes great with so many meals and is instantly addictive.

Anyway, he also managed to pick one with a few cans of dented creamed corn inside.  Not nearly as exciting as 3ft of bubble gum, but a key ingredient in this recipe that keeps the spoonbread moist. Because of those dented cans I’ve fallen in love with this dish all over again and hope you will too.

I’m coming late to the party but this recipe is super! It bears a slight resemblance to the standard Jiffy corn casserole for a side dish but without the additives and extra calories; the pickled jalapenos are a great addition! Serving with crab cakes , slaw and Crash Hot Potatoes. Thanks for sharing.

This turned out delicious and I ate most of it myself. Taking it to a Cousins Family Dinner tonight and going to try to double it. Hoping it works. Thanks for a great recipe!

This looks so so good. I can’t wait to try it – I love spoonbread! It’s not part of my family tradition but I discovered it at a BBQ joint about 18 years ago and now I can’t get enough.

I love the pictures too!

Thanks Jennie, hopefully this spoonbread will be every bit as good as the kind the BBQ place makes! And I appreciate your compliment on the photos! My photography education has been a long journey.

I’m not much of a fan of corn pudding either, but love cornbread. This sounds like something I’d like to try. My mom used to make a a similar dish that I absolutely loved. I’ve also been toying with the idea for making my own creamed corn, which would fit in perfectly with this recipe! One question – your recipe says to use 1/2 butter, can I assume that is 1/2 stick of butter? Do you use salted or unsalted? Thanks!

Danielle, Thank you so much for pointing that out! I can’t believe I missed that. Before I publish each post I go through and read it out loud to myself to make sure there are no typos or errors, but I usually don’t read the recipe portion out loud. I’m going to start now though. I’ve corrected it to read 1/2 cup melted butter, and I always use salted butter unless it’s noted otherwise. Again, thanks for pointing that out!

This sounds delicious! I bet it would be great with some chili! {….because I always have cheddar cornbread with it!} Can’t wait to try!

Oooh Sarah, I agree this spoonbread would be a wonderful combination with chili. Next cold front that hits, that’s exactly what I’m gonna make.

This is my first time hearing of a spoonbread – I so love the sound of it – and wow – your cheddar jalapeno spoonbread looks so insanely moist! My daughter isn’t a fan of cornbread either so I must try this soon!

My kids love anything spicy so I know this would be a hit with them. It reminds me of a Thanksgiving creamed corn we have made in our house for years and it looks so good! Cheers!
