Corn Pudding

Corn Pudding suffers a similar identity crisis as corn casserole. What defines it is most often what you grew up with and nobody makes any of it the same way.

What some folks call corn spoon bread, others call corn casserole. and vice versa. What some call corn casserole, yet others call corn pudding. and vice versa. It's kinda like that whole potatoes au gratin versus scalloped potatoes. Or what really is a po'boy, what makes up Comeback sauce, or the ingredients for a real southern cornbread. For me, when we're talking about corn pudding, I think of a corn-based, savory egg custard. with lots of eggs.

Sometimes I work on a recipe multiple times before I strike where I want it to be, and this is one of those instances. I've been through many iterations of corn pudding, playing around with multiple revisions on number of eggs, types of corn, sugar or no sugar, heavy cream or milk and how much, before settling happily right here. It's downright delicious but simple. There's really not much to it - just mix, pour and bake really - and since it's Christmas, a little bit of Maker's Mark is a nice addition, though completely optional.

I like to use a blend of tender, frozen corn with canned cream corn, which The Cajun loves. If you happen to have home-canned versions of either or both of them, all the better!

Corn Pudding the Easy Way - Recipes

My Dad from NC we used to eat this when I was young im try.this tonight and.surprise him

Please let me know how you and your father like it Wayne! Thanks!

Very interesting recipe.very delicious,I'll definitely try.
Thanks for sharing.

Can't wait to try this. Fixing it today along with your honey mustard bbq chicken recipe which is by far my favorite.

That k you Jeremy, please let me know how you like it.

Just wanted to let you know this was by far my favorite recipe. I've got 4-5 recipes from various friends/family but they were all either far too sweet or not sweet enough and this had the prefect balance. This is definitely going into my binder I'm putting together with all the best recipes I find. Keep up the great work!

That's awesome Jeremy! Glad you enjoyed it!! Thanks!

Should the frozen coen be thawed?

It doesn't have to be completely thawed, just to the point you can mix it. Mine was partially thawed and loose, then when I dumped it in it all froze and stuck together. LOL But it still mixed in okay.

I love corn pudding, I am making this today!

Thank you for watching! Please let me know how you like it!

It's a hit and my son loves it. We had it with fried tilapia and a garden salad. Thank you.

That's GREAT to hear!! Glad you and your son enjoyed it! Thank you again for giving it a try!!

Just made this as a bring along dish for Thanksgiving at my daughter's house. I had to sneak a taste. Yummy, yummy. I am betting this will be requested again. very simple and easy to fix

Thank you very much Pam, glad you enjoyed it!!

Can I put some cheese in it? Is so wich one do you suggest?.

Mild cheddar about 1/4 cup was delicious. Sweet and savory.

I didn't use sugar or butter and it came out great. Light, fluffy, sweet enough. I put a little bit of cheddar cheese in it. Yum! I used one can of creamed white corn, one can drained white corn kernels, whole milk, about 1/2 cup, one tbl spn corn starch, about one and a half backing powder, 5 eggs, tiny sprinkle of kosher,sea salt, and,about 3 til spns flour. oh yes!

If it sits made until dinner does it get better or worse. How would I heat it up then? Microwave?
Or can I take it out partly done and then slam in before dinner.
I don’t know the texture of this thing but it looks like something I’d want to fry up a leftover piece of in bacon fat.

Heat it up in the microwave.
That's what I do. Also its not bad warm or cold either. Your preference

Corn Pudding is a fabulous corn casserole–certainly one of our favorites. It’s like a corn souffle with lots of delicious corn in every bite. It’s so quick and easy, too. It only takes about 5 minutes to throw this together. Our family loves this tasty Corn Pudding recipe and I’ve served it often over the years.

It is one of the BEST recipes I have collected since I started cooking. It is so easy. You can make it using up fresh corn, frozen corn, or the usual canned corn. It has a souffle-type texture that is superb and light without sacrificing flavor. I also always have these ingredients on hand so I can whip together this casserole in about three minutes and have it ready to go!

This is the first corn casserole recipe I ever received. Kay Stafford used to help cook at the men’s Bible Study luncheon at First Baptist Church in Indian Rocks when I worked there in the early 80s. I remember Kay as a godly servant who stayed behind the scenes, never drew attention to herself, and used her gifts and talents to serve others.

She was a wonderful down-home style cook. She made this several times and I finally asked her for the recipe. I think of Kay every time I make this recipe–and it’s been hundreds of times over the years. If you want the quickest, easiest, most economical corn recipe you can find, this corn pudding recipe is probably it! We love this amazing corn recipe and I think your family will too.

A lot of our company over the years have partaken of Kay’s corn pudding recipe. Kay apparently got the recipe from The Joy of Cooking. I’ve only made a couple of slight modifications over the years and that was to change the corn amount from 2 cups to 2 cans–it’s slightly more so I just dumped all of the corn in, and to increase the flour slightly. When I make it with freezer corn I use a full 16-oz. bag. When I serve it, I usually cut it into squares, but you can also serve it with a spoon.

I’ve made this recipe several times since I initially posted it about ten days after I began this food blog. I’ve upgraded the pictures once, and now I’m upgrading them again with a better camera so you can have a good idea of what this lovely casserole is supposed to look like. Now I’ve remade the pictures a third time (December 2017) and updated the pictures again.

There is one caveat however. The casserole is supposed to be baked, uncovered, for an hour. That way the corn cooks properly and sets firmly. When I served it yesterday for company, I had many people exclaim how good the dish was. It is still one of our favorite side dishes!

Corn Pudding is one of our favorite holiday side dishes.

Corn Pudding is so quick and easy. I can usually have this oven ready in about 5 minutes if I microwave the butter rather than melt it in the oven!

Everyone always raves over this tasty corn dish. I’ve used fresh, frozen and canned corn in the recipe.

I used these ingredients to make Corn Pudding.

Place eggs in a bowl. Add sugar, flour and salt.

Whisk ingredients until smooth.

Drain corn. Add it along with the milk to other ingredients.

Stir well to combine.

Place a half stick of butter in a 9吉″ glass baking dish and melt in the oven. If you really need to save time, melt the butter in the microwave and pour into a 9吉″ glass baking dish.

Pour corn mixture into pan with melted butter. Make sure you scrape all the sugar out of your mixing bowl and stir the ingredients around a little bit in the casserole dish so all the sugar doesn’t end up in one spot.

Put it into the oven and bake uncovered for 60 minutes at 350.

I’ve had it cook in as little as 45 minutes (when nothing else is in the oven) or, need as long as an hour and 10 minutes if there are other casseroles in the oven. It will get a nice golden brown when it’s finished and it will be completely set in the middle when it’s done.

I usually cut this 3ࡪ making 12 pieces and serve it out with a spatula.

Corn Pudding is great for holiday entertaining or company. The texture is souffle-like.

Corn Pudding

This Corn Pudding is one of my favorite recipes at Thanksgiving and this is always one of the first side dishes to go. Some people call this creamed corn casserole, spoon corn, or corn souffle. Any way you name it, this corn recipe delicious!


Can everyone stop trying to health-ify Thanksgiving?! I’ve seen so many recipes for “skinny” versions of sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes, and pie.

I like to eat healthy too but can’t we have at least one day where we have a free hall pass to eat whatever we want without all the guilt? To eat pie until our pants split open? To load butter upon butter on our veggies until they’re unrecognizable?

The other 364 days of the year we can worry about calories. Seriously. Let’s give ourselves a break, puh-lease.

Now that I have you all buttered up to calorie laden dishes let me introduce you to this dish.

My friend Lauren brought this corn casserole to Thanksgiving dinner and I found myself going back for not only seconds, but thirds.

I had no idea that is was surprisingly easy and I can’t say enough about how good it is. This one is also from my cookbook! Enjoy!


Make the recipe up to three days ahead of time and reheat on the day of serving.


Yes! You can easily double this by baking it in a 9吉 baking dish. Add 10-15 minutes to the cooking time or until the center isn’t jiggly.

Nana’s Corn Pudding

Nana’s Corn Pudding has just five ingredients and less than 5 minutes of prep time. This is one of my favorite easy Easter side dishes. It packs sweet corn flavor and the perfect side for any holiday.

Holidays like Easter are always steeped in tradition. In our house, it was always ham, mashed potatoes, hot cross buns, and lots of eggs. Then there was the ever present Brussels sprouts covered with the mock hollandaise. They were not roasted or even sautéed. Just don’t go there.

With my family now, we have a few traditions, but not many. Like, we always have ham. Though, I’m thinking of changing that up and maybe trying a leg of lamb some year. Not this year though. We always have green bean casserole. That’s at almost every holiday. The hubs loves it and it’s growing on me. Scalloped potatoes or au gratin potatoes are always on the table at Easter. Because, well, ham and scalloped potatoes are a match made in heaven.

Heck! Potatoes and cheese are a match made in heaven!

But, that’s not what this post and this recipe is about. This is about Nana’s corn pudding. A recipe that was published in her church cookbook. Yes. I have it. It’s on my shelf along with the few other cookbooks I keep. No. I’m not a huge cookbook recipe maker or cookbook collector. There are a few that I cherish, a few that I love and have used, and a few that I hope to use to learn from.

Now, Nana, on the other hand, I could always learn from. She was a genius in the kitchen. Her chicken and dumplings were off the charts. She could make the best gravy out of anything. Her sausage gravy though? To die for. Especially on top of her biscuits. Man, those were the good days as a kid growing up in the south. When you knew what sorghum was for and used it.

What I remember most is Nana’s corn pudding.

It tastes delicious yet super simple. And, it can be used for many main dishes, I have found out. You see, there’s a restaurant that we used to frequent at work called Chevy’s. They served up a corn side dish that tastes quite similar to this corn pudding. My boss at the tame always raved about it and I swore to make some corn pudding for her.

Well, I finally did for a Christmas party and she agreed that Nana’s corn pudding tasted just like her favorite side dish at this Tex-Mex restaurant. I left her the easy recipe and she was thrilled. A happy boss is always a good boss, right?

Nana’s corn pudding has 5 ingredients. And they’re pantry/refrigerator staples at that. I always have cans of corn and creamed corn. If I don’t have the corn muffin mix, I can easily whip some up. It’s just some flour, cornmeal, baking powder, sugar, and salt. There’s plenty of copycat recipes out there where you can easily whip up your own batch of muffin mix to keep in your pantry.

This is one of our family’s favorite easy Easter recipe side dishes. It literally takes minutes to prep this recipe and pop it in the oven. It takes longer to wait for it to cool before serving than it does to make this corn pudding.

You can’t get any easier or simpler than that.

And just look at that deliciously golden color! It has the perfect amount of sweet combined with corn flavor. Yet, it’s easily adaptable! Add some jalapenos or green chiles and toss in some cheddar for a kicked up Tex-Mex version. Stir in some sun dried tomatoes and mozzarella for an Italian version. How about some roasted red peppers and feta for a Mediterranean flair?

You see? It’s so simple that it can be kicked up any way you’d like. Add some sliced hot dogs or kielbasa and make it a main dish! Stir in some leftover Easter ham or rotisserie chicken to repurpose left overs. Make it a pizza style with some pepperoni, roasted red peppers, and sun-dried tomato pesto. Only your imagination can limit the possibilities.

I can see those wheels turning. You’re using your imagination to not only taste this delicious corn pudding but mixing it up with your favorite flavors. That’s how recipes are intended to be used! They’re just a guideline, really. Swap out ground chicken for beef in a meatball recipe. Change up the cayenne and chili powder for some paprika and turmeric. Things like that make a recipe truly adapt to your tastes and palette.

Okay. Enough about all that. Traditionally, we serve Nana’s corn pudding at family gatherings like Easter and Thanksgiving. At least from what I can remember, which isn’t much. However, I do remember it tastes amazing. It’s the perfect balance of flavors with plenty of corn flavoring to make it vegetable-ish.

Of all the times I’ve made this recipe, I can’t believe I’ve never shared it. Then again, I think it goes in that category of family recipes that I don’t really want to share? Because they’re, well, family? I’m a bit strange with that. I know. Slowly I’ll be sharing more and more of my family favorites. So, just stay tuned.

What do you traditionally serve for Easter? Do you change it up or serve the same things every year? I hope you find some new delicious easy Easter side dishes for your family.

Spoonbread History

Believed to have Native American origins, spoonbread was commonly called Awendaw or Owendaw. The first print recipe appeared in Sarah Rutledge&rsquos 1847 cookbook, &ldquoThe Carolina Housewife.&rdquo Many have compared British Yorkshire pudding to spoonbread and hypothesize that early European settlers adapted their traditional recipe, swapping flour for native grown cornmeal.

Marion Cunningham, writing for the Los Angeles Times, says, &ldquoTracing the evolution of cornbread from suppone (Indian corn) to spoon bread is in some ways similar to studying history through fossils and other artifacts. There is a rough parallel in these recipes with the social and cultural movement of people through history. A properly prepared dish of spoonbread can be taken as continued testimony to the perfectibility of humankind.&rdquo

As with all historically significant recipes, they evolve over time. Home cooks, generation after generation, add bits and pieces of ingredients, herbs, and techniques. Notes written and passed down from one to another survive because they&rsquore delicious and have stories to tell.

Our Southern Corn Pudding Recipe

Our recipe for corn pudding creates a fairly firm and well-set custard that is studded with kernels of sweet corn.

Since fresh corn is only available for a short season where we live, we used frozen sweet corn to make our pudding.

By pulsing half of the corn in the food processor before adding it to the custard mixture, you release some of the corn&rsquos juices and create a similar texture to what you would get from grating fresh corn, grated off of the cob.

The result is a creamy and eggy dish that bursts with the flavor of sweet corn.

Why not give this corn side dish a try the next time you&rsquore craving something a bit different!
