Growing up in Ohio fresh sweet corn was readily available to buy from the local farmers. There's just nothing that compares. Whenever possible only buy fresh sweet corn for this recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 ears sweet corn, husks on
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • salt and pepper


  1. Place 4 ears of corn (leave husk w/silk in tact) on a cookie sheet. Roast in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.
  2. Once the corn remove the husk and silk using an oven mitt or towel. Remember, the corn will be hot so use oven mitts for this task. Serve with butter, salt and pepper. Add a bit of paprika for extra flavor and color.

I love how easy this is. and the corn is so great. we don't use corn on the cob holders anymore either. Only problem I have had is the silk getting loose in the oven. But easy to clean up, so FANTASTIC!

What a PERFECT way to prepare fresh corn on the cob! It was so very quick and easy to put together and still spectacular. The corn gets a really nice roasted flavour but stays super moist at the same time. YUM! Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe with us, Chef Texas Mom! It will be my go-to recipe for corn cobs from now on. Made and reviewed for Cookbook Tag Game August 09.
