Sweet Corn Pudding

Sweet Corn Pudding

Sweet Corn Pudding is a delicious and easy addition to your Thanksgiving table.  This Southern favorite is a cross between a savory pudding and creamed corn.  It’s subtly sweet, creamy, and full of fresh corn flavor.

This is one of my favorite holiday dishes.  I love the sweetness and how well it goes with the savory Thanksgiving dishes.  At my holiday table, this is the dish that my family argues, then wheels and deals for seconds.

Sweet Corn Pudding

Every recipe that I’ve seen for this dish uses a box of cornbread muffin mix.  While that recipe is delicious, I wanted to make this recipe using separate ingredients with fewer preservatives.

Using flour, cornmeal, and baking powder accomplishes the same thing as the cornbread muffin mix does, but with a fresher flavor.  It also allows you to control how sweet or savory you make the dish.

Ingredients Needed

  • Large eggs – this makes the ‘custard’ for the casserole
  • Butter, sour cream, salt, and half and half
  • Granulated sugar
  • Vanilla – this accentuates both the sweetness and flavor of the corn
  • All-purpose flour, cornmeal, and baking powder
  • Frozen corn kernels
  • Canned cream-style corn

How To Make This Casserole

  1.  Mix together the eggs, butter, sugar, half and half, and vanilla.
  2. Stir in the dry ingredients, frozen and canned corn.
  3. Pour into a baking dish and bake until golden.

To quote my idol, Ina Garten, ‘How easy is that?’

Variations And Additions

  • Reduce the sugar to 2 tablespoons and add ½ teaspoon cumin, ¼ teaspoon chili powder, and a 4-ounce can of chopped green chiles.  Top the casserole with shredded cheddar cheese.  This will give you a Southwestern flavor.
  • Add shredded carrots for a colorful nutrition boost.
  • The addition of cubed goat cheese adds a tangy, creamy flavor.
  • Fresh thyme, parsley, chives, or rosemary lend an herbaceous note to the casserole.
