Southern Corn Pudding

For years now, Kenny has been talking about a corn dish he used to make and when he found this in the Farmhouse Cookbook, he was tickled pink. He said it sounded just like what he used make only he did his in the microwave and this is baked in the oven.
That was another thing last week, my microwave said so long and we had to go out and buy a new one as I did not want to have Easter without, UGH!

For your own good....DO NOT make this recipe!!!

For your own good….DO NOT make this recipe!!! You could float a boat in the corner… Per Kenny!

Well, we all had a taste of it on Easter and the remainder was happily gobbled up by the chickens; does that tell you something? To be fair to the original recipe which called for fresh corn cut off the cob, Kenny insisted on just using canned corn. It turned out very watery and I explained to him that the fresh corn would have probably thicken the milk up with it’s natural starch, hence making it more like a pudding rather than a soupy mess. I think the flavor would have been much better too if he had used fresh corn. I get the feeling that he won’t be experimenting in the kitchen in the very near future as he was so disappointed.
As the saying goes though, nothing ventured, nothing gained and maybe I’ll try this with fresh corn which is abundant right now here in Florida; I’ll just do  a smaller batch to see if I had the right solution or if the recipe had a possible typo like maybe 1 cup of milk instead of 2 which also sounds more copacetic in my book.

If anyone out there has ever made anything close to this recipe and liked it, drop me a line and let me know what your recipe is; I’d love some input and maybe you could cheer husband up a little for me!

Southern Corn Pudding
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups fresh corn
  • 2 cups milk
  • ½ teas salt
  • ½ teas pepper
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  1. Beat eggs until light.
  2. Beat in the milk, oil, salt and pepper.
  3. Stir in the corn and pour into a 1 quart buttered casserole dish.
  4. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.

I still have a couple of recipes from Easter to share with you and yes, one more disaster story thanks to daughter who apparently didn’t copy her husband’s recipe correctly for me! And now that I think about it, another disaster to share, not with a recipe, but with my granddaughter’s klutziness in putting away the left-overs! Gotta love her, she’s just like her Gram……….

  1. This sounds like a winner and Kenny has vowed to try it! Just a quick question though, do you use a 15 oz can of each? We’ll let you know the outcome and would like to know if we could use your recipe after we try our hand at it and give you the credit? Thanks for the recipe and can’t wait to try it, bet it would go great with ham………….Yum

  2. Kenny did drain the corn, but the milk seemed a little overpowering and like I said, we didn’t use fresh corn as the recipe instructed….. Thanks Shasta for commenting!

  3. Sorry!!! Drain the whole kernel corn

  4. Hey, I’m so sorry this was a disaster. But I have a recipe for Corn Pudding that’s easy as can be and yummy!!

    1can cream corn
    1can whole kernel corn
    1c. Sour Cream
    1stick butter (melted)
    1 package mexicorn bread mix or plain corn bread mix

    Mix all of the ingredients above and bake in a 2 quart casserole dish at 375 for 45 mins

  5. I have fun reading some of the older cook books and say to myself, did anyone edit this before putting it in print? I find so many typos such as an ingredient listed but not included in the recipe directions. I’m sure I’ve made a boo boo here and there too and just pray my editor-in-chief catches it for me, ha ha! And yes, that does seem like a lot of milk and even Kenny thought that when putting it together! Oh well, better luck next time if there is one on that recipe……….Thanks Bonnie, Regina
    P.S. Kenny did bake it in the oven, it was the recipe he had years ago that he did in the microwave.

  6. You made Kenny’s day Mary! And yes I do think it’s something to do with the ingredients and one person said it should have had some corn starch or flour added to thicken it! Don’t know………..Thanks for commenting, Regina

  7. So sorry! Maybe should have used the fresh corn, as you said, or baked in the oven rather than the microwave. However, that sounds like a lot of milk, doesn’t it?

  8. Tell Kenny there is nothing wrong with his cooking. It’s the recipe!
