Take ingredients you probably already have at home and combine them into a delicious and savory corn cobbler. This cobbler makes a great side dish to serve for get-togethers, the holidays, or with your favorite family meal. It's easy to prep, then let the oven finish baking it. Did we mention there's a bit of jalapeño for an extra kick?


  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for the dish

  • 1 jalapeño, minced

  • 4 scallions, sliced

  • 4 cups fresh or frozen corn kernels

  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth

  • 1 ½ cups heavy cream

  • 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt

  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

  • 2 cups flour

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried

  • 1 cup whole milk


  1. Heat oven to 375 F.

  2. In a skillet, over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter. Add the jalapeño and scallions. Cook for 3 minutes. Add the corn and broth. Increase heat to medium-high and cook for 4 minutes. Turn off heat. Stir in the cream, 1 teaspoon of the salt, and the pepper. Pour into a buttered 9-by-13-inch baking dish.

  3. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and the remaining salt. Using 2 knives or your fingertips, add the remaining butter, cut into small pieces. Mix until it resembles crumbs. Stir in the thyme and milk. Drop heaping spoonfuls of the batter on top of the corn mixture. Bake for about 50 minutes. Garnish with fresh thyme, if desired.
