SWEET CORN PUDDING JUST LIKE GRANDMA MAKES IT

by Utokia Langley

When I think of corn pudding I think of Grandma.  It’s funny I made this for a birthday party and one of the gentlemen said “OK, whose Grandma made the corn pudding”!  I boasted I made the corn pudding Mr. but I am not a Grandma just yet ~ smile!  I was given this recipe years ago by my Mother’s best friend Burdette’s daughter in-law Burnetta.  How ironic is it that Burdette’s son married a woman named Burnetta, ok I digress.  The first time I had the corn pudding was at a cook out.  Well you know that dish you taste that’s so freakin good you have to ask or beg if you have to for the recipe, this was it!  Then when she gave me the recipe, I thought something this good could not have been this easy to cook.  But it was and OMG every time I make this sweet corn pudding it gets rave reviews!  Hope you enjoy!!!!

SWEET CORN PUDDING JUST LIKE GRANDMA MAKES IT

INGREDIENTS:

2 14-15 oz. cans whole kennel corn
2 14-15 oz. cans cream corn
6 beaten eggs
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 stick cooled melted unsalted butter
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
Cooking spray to spray your baking dish (I use Pam)

READY, SET GO:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400
  2.  Drain liquid from the Whole Kennel Corn Cans, add all ingredients to a large bowl and stir together (add the cooled melted butter last so it doesn’t cook the eggs)
  3. Spray baking dish with cooking spray
  4. Pour corn pudding mixture into baking dish and bake uncovered for 1 hour or until golden brown on top and butter is bubbling just a little on top
  5. ENJOY, ENJOY, ENJOY!!!

Corn pudding is one of my favorites. I haven’t had it with vanilla extract, though. I’ll have to try it. I am starting a recipe-sharing website. Hope you will sign up and share your recipes with us when we launch.

It’s so funny. Nigerians make corn pudding in a completely different way. They blend the corn, add a fish sauce to it and some veggies and steam it. isn’t it interesting how a dish with one name has different methods across cultures in the world? I love your blog by the way. Excuse my rant, it’s 3:30am and Insomnia is taking over

If you use a longer pan and it spreads out no … but if the pan is deeper then add another 30 minutes … but watch it … it should be firm but still jiggle and slight brown on top .
. Good luck Sherry and come back for more recipes after turkey day

I’ve been making corn pudding for years everyone has loved it, but I would fight every year with it separating because of the butter…I’m assumingnow that I didn’t add enough eggs and flour.

I just made the recipe as you have it and I have to say that it is AMAZING. Acually the best I’ve ever had. I do add a little cinnamon to mine. I cannot wait for everyone to taste it at our Thanksgiving day dinner today. THANK YOU so much for sharing.

If you are supposed to drain the corn you might want to add that in the recipe. If I didn’t look at the comments I would have poured the liquid in with the corn.

Great otherwise!

In the beginning, you said the ingredients had to be added in the order given and that you’d explain why, but you never did. If it all gets mixed together, what difference does it make in what order they are added to the bowl?

I think this recipe sounds and looks fabulous. I can’t wait to make this! Also, you’re very, very pretty.

You are seen pouring the mixture in to an OVAL dish, but the one you take out at the end is in a square, so what happened to the one you created and put into the oven to begin with? Did something happend to it, perhaps it did not turn out right? Do we need to adjust the recipe?

I stumbled up on this recipe because my neighbor mentioned just the other day that she wanted some corn pudding. When I read through the list of recipes, I thought, I’m not sure on this, I’m not sure of that and then I came upon yours. I read it and it spoke to my soul…so I have to try it. It will be a surprise to my neighbor when I make it and I believe we both will laugh while I share with her how she got to have the pleasure of tasting your recipe. I will let you know how it turned out. THANKS A MILLION…WILL KEEP YOU POSTED.

Hi, I love this recipe with add cinnamon and nutmeg. The problem is I can’t find the dish you used. I checked Pyrex store, it was sold out, same at Wal-Mart etc. So the first time I used a lasagna pan and it turned hard a bit dry but everyone still loved it. Second time I used a 9 x 13 nonstick pan and it had to be baked longer. I’m planning in making it tomorrow again and I’m gonna use a 9 x 13 pyrex dish. Hope it turns out Ok. Could you post what dish and size you used? What brand?

Hi,
I’m excited about making this. I MISS the fabulous southern corn pudding my best friend- Sally used to make. It’s very close to her recipe minus the vanilla.

The recipe didn’t have the serving size and checked the comments with no mention. My guess maybe 6 servings, please advise how many servings? Thanks.

One of my favorite dishes at holiday time. I grew up on it and I could never replicate what my aunties made when I was a child. They always said that I should add one egg for each small can of evaporated milk. I was shocked that when I found this recipe, it contained zero milk. It is sweet, creamy and custard…which is my favorite!! This one is a definite hit! I brought this to a company holiday potluck last year and I had elder coworkers asking me for the recipe.

Merry Christmas Utokia!
I have made corn pudding many different ways I’ve checked out different blogs for the last 3 weeks; googled how to make corn pudding with canned corn since I missed the summer corn crop, and came across your recipe. I’v already purchased whipping cream, halfnhalf when I noticed your recipe mentioned none. So I was intrigued and now as I am prepping my dish for dinner, I think I found a new way to make this dish!

Reply
Simommie April 17, 2017 - 8:03 pm

Yes yes yes!! This is pretty much exactly the corn pudding I grew up with! Most “sweet” corn pudding recipes I’ve seen online refer to a more savory dish, with the “sweet” just meaning the corn is sweet. So nice to see this recipe so everyone can realize the addictiveness of this rich yummy comfort food in all it’s sweet dessert-like glory lol

I am planning on making your corn pudding for Thanksgiving this year (3 days from now). I watched your video, but couldn’t tell the capacity of the baking dish we should use. It looks s smaller than a 9″ x 13″ and the first dish (when you added and stirred all the ingredients) was round, but the finished corn pudding (after baking an hour) was in a rectangular dish. Just curious as to the size dish to use for baking??? Thanks! Looks delicious and I can’t wait to try it!

Reply
Utokia November 22, 2017 - 7:06 am

Hello Janet, you are correct I used 9 x 13, however, while many recipes turn out different when using different pans, this one does not, I’ve used several different pans it will not impact the flavor or texture so you are good! enjoy and thank you for visiting shesgotflavor

Reply
Utokia November 22, 2017 - 3:25 pm

I have only tested this at 400. If you decide to do 350 just make sure it has a slightly brown top and it is no longer similar to liquid, it should be like a gel texture
