Corn Pudding


Corn Pudding was something reserved just for holiday time when I was growing up ~ and that’s pretty much the case today.




There are hundreds of variations of this dish, and this is mine; with cornmeal, no Jiffy mix.  The ingredients are pureed in a food processor until the corn is smashed, turning it into a creamy corn mush. It’s a sort of sweet and savory, egg-custard dish baked to a golden brown ~ almost a soufflé.

This could be made with frozen corn, or even better, fresh corn in the summertime.  It would fit right in at a summer BBQ!

It’s a popular Midwest side dish that I’ve decided we should enjoy more often! 




Corn Pudding

Ingredients:

2 (14 ounce) cans corn, drained
1½ cups whole milk
4 eggs
½ cup cornmeal
1 tablespoon flour
1¼ teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground pepper
2 tablespoons sugar
4 tablespoons butter, melted

Method:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Lightly grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.
Place drained corn into a food processor and puree until almost smooth.
Add remaining ingredients, and blend well for a minute.
Pour mixture into baking dish.
Bake for 1 hour, or until knife inserted in middle comes out clean.
Serves 8


It’s easy as pie and good too!

  1. The version I used to make was called spoon bread. I think about it frequently and keep meaning to locate the recipe among our 650 pages of recipes in binders. At least they are alphabetized.

  4. How funny, Pam - I just made a Cheddar Corn Souffle and my Southern husbad said it reminded him of Corn Pudding. I will have to try your recipe as a comparison. It looks great.

    Have a lovely Easter!

  5. Hi Pam!

    I've never tried Corn Pudding but this looks DELICIOUS. I definitely will be trying this sometime soon. Right now Bread Pudding is all the rage in SF, maybe Corn Pudding will be the next big trend?? :)

  8. Corn pudding is good anytime--even for breakfast!! I will admit that I've made it with a corn bread mix. My mother, however, made a dish very similar to yours. It was so delicious!! I'm saving your recipe for when fresh corn is here.

    Happy Easter!

    Best,
    Bonnie

  13. I used to have a recipe using creamed corn but I haven't been able to find it in my stash. This one might be quite the same because of putting the corn into the processor. I'm with you - I only seem to make this on special occasions... and its so good!
