    Is it possible to bake it in the oven? I am not a slow cooker user.I surely would no take 4-5 hours in the oven. Thanks.

    This looks delicious. However, it isn't a true spoon bread that puffs up like a soufflé. Has anyone submitted a Southern Spoon bread recipe here? I will search for it.

    I made this in the oven at 350 for 45 minutes and it turned out great! The cayenne gave it a nice kick!
