Reviews for Corn Pudding
"Perfect side dish for any holiday or Sunday dinner!"
"I wouldn't really call this a corn pudding. It is a really great cornbread, though. I love the texture and sweetness of this."
"Made this for Thanksgiving today and my 2 skeptical adult daughters, who thought corn pudding did not sound very good, both loved it. Made it as outlined in the directions; I was impressed with how light and fluffy it turned out. Cooking time was under 45 minutes. Both of my girls stated that it reminded them of cornbread stuffing. Will definitely be making this again !"
"I really didn't want to rate this because I have not tried this specific recipe. I just see people saying that it takes a long time to set. I make one similar. I don't use the eggs, milk or sugar and it turns out great. Takes about an hour at 350. Doubling the recipe will make it take about 30 minutes longer. I use half a box of jiffy corn muffing mix with the corn, sour cream, and butter."
"Made this exactly as written. Took WAY longer than 50 minutes to "set". I'm not impressed. Finally set after an hour and a half and was super dry."
"My family loves it!"
"My sister-in-law brought this to our last family get together. It was fantastic. She sent us all the recipe, as we all raved about it. I can't wait to make it at my next get together with friends."
"We make this often. I first tasted corn pudding as a side dish at El Torito Restaurants but their recipe was much more involved. My recipe calls for undrained corn, no milk and NO added sugar. You can also make your own cornbread mix if you don't like using packaged mixes."
"I found this recipe to be very good! I found that I DID need to bake the pudding longer than recipe specified-I baked pudding 45 minute and it was not set. I baked about 25 minutes longer and used a knife to test the pudding. Because of the lower oven temperature, I felt that the pudding was slower to set! delowenstein"
"This is very similar the recipe I've used for years, except mine does not include the sugar. It also doesn't have the milk; use undrained whole kernel corn for the liquid. (And it specifies to put the corn bread mix in last). Always a huge hit wherever I take it. It's my go-to recipe when I need something that mixes up quickly. (4-star review because I've never made *this* recipe.)"
"Absolutely fabulous. Made it exactly as the recipe statedand it was gone in minutes."
"I made the recipe as written, and it was very good; but I agree with other reviewers that it is too sweet. Next time I make it I will cut back on the sugar and may add some sauteed onions and/or grated cheddar cheese."
"This is a great side dish. I would reduce the sugar, I found it sweet. I would also add some cheese to the mixture next time. Great Thanksgiving side. Goes great with steak too. Loved it."
"I've been making this for years! It's a family favorite. As another reviewer wrote, I also saute an onion in the butter and add to the pudding. It's a terrific side dish for barbecue in the summer. We love it!"
"I've been making a this for years with a twist. I saute a onion in the butter than pour over top and add a sprinkle of cheese."
"I've been making this recipe ever since it was introduced in a 2006 issue; it's the one EVERYONE asks for. In fact, I'm a little tired of making it for every occasion, but people HOWL when I beg to bring something else! It truly is delicious and everyone loves it; what more can you ask of a recipe?"
"Made this a few weeks ago and again tonight. It is very good. My husband loves this recipe. I have never heard of corn pudding before so I thought I would try it. I'm glad I did!"
"Fixed this for the first time for a church party and was asked for the recipe - and my hub and said this was a keeper. A similar recipe lacked the rich flavor this does. Definitely a pudding."
"Made this for Thanksgiving. Very good. I added 1 Tab sugar, used 11 X 7 pan, was perfect."
"I made this for Thanksgiving and it came out really nice. I used no sugar, since I was using sweet corn and also egg whites. I plan to make some more tomorrow and will be using less butter. I plan to keep making this. I Absolutely love it!!!"
"A wonderful first-time addition to our Thanksgiving meal that will now become a family tradition. The whole family, from youngest to oldest, loved it. I followed the recipe as written except I substituted about 2 cups of our home-grown frozen corn for the whole kernel corn."
"This was the first time I had made any version of corn pudding and it was a huge hit! Our group of 4 adults and 2 kids finished the pan! Everyone went back for seconds, it was the only part of the Thanksgiving meal that wasn't leftover. So the next day when we were getting ready to eat the leftovers my husband insisted I make another pan! I did cook it longer the first time and preferred it compared to the recipe cook time, but that was the only change."
"Very good. I make it for family dinners."
"Yummy, this will be a family favorite"
"Delicious, will definitely make it again, although I might use less sugar. The cornbread mix I used was very sweet."
"Delicious. The whole family loved it. Like a very moist cornbread with some whole kernels in it."
"Love this, made it for dinner and it's delicious"
"Make it for most holidays. Never any leftover. Great taste and easy to prepare."
"This is so delicious! I made it tonight and was just perfect? My kids and husband couldn't have enough."
"Delicious! Perfect texture--not too runny, like some."
"I tried a corn casserole at a BBQ and loved it. Searched around for a similar recipe and this one is it. A little sweet with the added sugar, it has a creamy, corny flavor & texture. Very easy to put together-open cans-bam. Could make in advance & reheat. Can cut into squares & freeze. Good base recipe to liven up, or just as it is. Will try a can of mexicorn, green chilies, cheese, fresh corn and onions as others have done. Took 20 minutes longer since I put it in a deeper corningware. I'll just use my Pyrex 9x13 next time. A keeper recipe, I may never make cornbread again!"
"Excellent recipe! I think I used a 2 quart dish, so it took longer to bake, but it was a great, sweet-tasting corn dish."
"Everyone has their favorite substitutions; I used skim milk, less sugar and it is delicious. I want to try it with asparagus spears on the top! That might be yummy!"
"This is terrific! I added chopped jalape?o and red peppers to the recipe. It quickly disappeared. Very tasty!"
"As written, this is WAY TOO SWEET. So, after making this several times, decided to go savory with the flavors and it was just right.We left out the sugar completely, added about 1/2 cup diced onion, a scant 1/4 cup minced canned jalape?os and about 1/2 cup sharp cheddar. All the rest remained the same. It did take another 10(ish) minutes bake time."
"My husband and I love this recipe! I fixed it last night--but I left out the butter, sugar, and substituted plain yogurt instead of the sour cream. I used two boxes of Jiffy Mix and some no salt herbal seasoning from Dollar Tree. Turned out great! And with a lot less calories and fat!"
"I really enjoyed this :o) It was quite sweet but that's what I liked about it !"
"This is very good and is always a staple at our Thanksgiving table. Everyone loves it, but I do add strips of green, yellow, and red bell peppers for color and taste, as well as diced onions. My recipe was nearly identical from an insert in our electric bill, but called for two cans of whole kernel, and two cans of cream style, plus 1/2 cup Flour rather than the cornbread mix. Delicious nevertheless."
"This was very good. I made this during the holidays and there wasn't any left. It was a great alternative to just plain corn."
"Made this as written except used whole milk. Came out as described in recipe. Family and I liked. Will make again. I thought it was even better the next day."
"Best corn pudding I ever had"
"This is great as written, but I tried to cut a few calories and that works too. Try omitting the eggs, milk and sugar. (or at least reduce sugar to 1/4 c) It is still wonderful! Melt the butter and mix all ingredients together. Sometimes when it is done, I sprinkle top with cheddar cheese or jack cheese (if you want a little bite) and put back in oven until it melts. It doesn't need a lot of cheese. Any which way - this is good eatin'!!"
"I made the exact recipe as is and it is wonderful everyone loves it...i do add a little cayenne pepper to the top while it's baking for looks"
"This is so wonderful, everyone loves it. It does tend to be sweet so feel free to cut the sugar back if you choose."
"I make this often without the sugar and milk, but I'm looking forward to trying it with the sugar and milk. I bet my grandkids will like it better with the sugar.LOL"
"I make this without sugar or milk and it is definitely sweet enough. Just took it to a church potluck and I was asked for the recipe"
"I usually make corn pudding without cornbread mix, but was pleasantly suprised at how much we enjoyed this one, too."
"This is really good! My sister in law makes corn pudding for family gatherings and I always enjoyed it! I decided I would make this to go with my Mother's Day ham this year. I used House of Autry cornbread mix. I like to by local, and their products are made in NC!"
"Delicious! Both my mom and I have made this many times. The only change we make is to use 2 cans of whole kernel corn and leave out the creamed corn. Great side for a holiday or company meal!"
"My husband doesn't like creamed corn, but he'll eat it in this recipe! Great to take to a potluck."
"This is a wonderful recipe and we will make it again in the future!"
"I made this to take to Christmas dinner with friends & all 8 people (including me) loved it. I cut the sugar down to 1/4 cup, as many reviewers suggested & it was just perfect. This was a great side dish with ham & green beans, plus orange-cranberry relish. Foolproof & pleasing to all, I'll definitely make it again."
"Works great, even with the quarter cup of oil I had to substitute for an egg because I only had one egg left. Also added half teaspoon of salt and baked just a bit longer than the recommend cooking time because I like mine a bit more firm. All told, I think this is a pretty foolproof recipe. If you like corn and cornbread, you can't go wrong with this recipe."
"This was the third corn pudding recipe that I have tried. It was the "Charm". It's sweet and cake-like. It's just been voted new favorite comfort food in our household. The fact that it is super easy to make is a definite working moms plus. As suggested I only used 1/4 cup of sugar and Jiffy Mix and it's perfectly sweet!"
"I used 1/4 cup sugar as suggested by others, this was great. Everyone enjoyed it. I made it in a round dish with high sides and it was a bit undercooked in the middle. Next time I'll use a 9x13 pan. Thanks for sharing!"
"This is a great recipe. I sometimes use Mexican Style Corn in place of the Whole Kernel Corn. Sometimes I put in chopped Jalapeno with it. Left overs are great too."
"I have always loved this recipe. Does anyone know if it can be doubled or tripled and can it be made the day before and reheated for the "big event"?"
"If you like sweet corn pudding this is the recipe for you. If you don't like it sweet just omit the sugar and use cornbread mix that doesn't have sugar. I like to omit the sugar and add cheese, jalapenos, and onions."
"NO sugar needed especially if using Jiffy cornbread mix. Absolutely delicious. I only make this at the holidays but crave it the rest of the year!"
"This recipe is a staple at our family gatherings. I sometimes add shredded cheddar cheese, but ususally make it just as the recipe is written. A comfort food for sure."
"I've tried numerous Corn Pudding recipes in the past. This was simple and sweet. Family loved it."
"This recipe is GREAT! My family just loved it. I had never made corn pudding before and this was my first time. It came out great and I will definitely make this again and again."
"This recipe is wonderful. I did omit the sugar as suggested. Delicious, rather simple and I'll definitely make this again. My family men said the recipe is a "keeper.""
"My niece made this for Thanksgiving. It was so good. Yes, I will make it."
"I added sauted green pepper and onion to add and then put in a small can of diced green chiles. This was a suggestion from a friend in Arizona. Good every way."
"Zero sugar needed. I have been making this recipe for a long time. I also cut butter down to 1/4 cup and use low-fat sour cream with no negative effects. Tastes great."
"The only adjustment I would make to this recipe is to omit the sugar completely. I have always made this recipe without sugar. It is not needed."
"This is outstanding and so easy to make! To kick it up a bit, we added a can of diced green chiles as well. We also sometimes use 1/4 c. maple syrup instead of sugar - SO good!!"
"Guests LOVE this dish! I always make it at the Holidays!"
"I make this many times we love it any time, TG, Xmas, New Year or easter!!!"
"A very pleasing side dish to complete a meal. Because quite a few of the comments mentioned the dish being sweet I cut the sugar down to 1/3 cup, and I would probably use only 1/4 in the future."
"Have made this for family get togethers for several years...always a must have request"
"Is it a vegetable dish or is it dessert?Either way it is absolutely scrumptious"
"Wonderfully rich creamed corn flavor. Kind of "Corn bread on Steroids"!"
"I have a recipe very simular, but it doesn't have sugar in it, it has a little salt. It is a hit with the family. IF theres any leftovers t is good frozen then warmed. And yes, Jiffy is the best muffin mix for it."
"I doubled this recipe and used more creamed corn. Jiffy cornbread is the best cornbread to use. This recipe is excellent. Very very tasty!!!!!!!"
"what a great recipe the only thing that i did was add a pinch of salt thanks Lauren"
"My family and friends all loved this dish. I fix it often. It makes any meal a special occasion. Some family members think this should be the dessert."
"Very rich and sweet, corn for a dessert."
"My mother-in-law suggested that we have a corn dish for Thanksgiving. I had seen this recipe and volunteered to make it. It was very good. A definite keeper!"
"This is a wonderful recipe. Everyone loved it and we didnt have any left overs at all, which I was hoping for so I could eat some later. Will make this again for sure!!!"
"I added chopped green onions to it, loved it!"
"YUUUUUMMMYYYYYY!!! This dish is sooooo good. My family raved about it to everyone!!! Totally making this one again ;)"
"This is excellent. It tastes very similar to the baked corn that a local restaurant sometimes serves. Next time I will decrease or eliminate the sugar since it was a little on the sweet side for us."
"I have been making this recipie for years but i never put sugar, and it is just as good ..."
"Even my very fussy daughter liked this! A great sidedish for when everyone's tired of the more usual veggies. And it's a pudding in the same way a plum pudding is called a pudding. A more British version of pudding than what most Americans envision."
"Absolutely! Never fails to be really delicious and has become a family/friends favorite!"
"everyone looks forward to this recipe - and it goes well with a picnic or a more elegant meal"
"I took it to a church supper and many people asked for the recipe. I tried it adding a tsp of nutmeg and a tsp of vanilla. Delocious! Thanks. Mary"
"Tasty, simple sidedish"
"The first time I had corn pudding I thought it was going to be awful. I don't know why it's called a pudding, but it sure is delicious! I love it! Pretty simple to make, and so good!!"
"Its not supposed to taste like cornbread - which has less sugar."
"The sweetness is what makes it such a treat as a side dish! It adds a surprise to the meal. People request me to make this dish for parties all the time, and it always goes fast!"
"Too sweet. The sugar hides the sweetness of the corn."
"My family loves corn so I knew I had to try this recipe. We all liked it, but thought it was sweeter than it needed to be. Next time I'll decrease the sugar by half."
"Remove from oven top with shredded cheddar cheese or shredded swiss cheese and return to oven until cheese is melted."
"I made this for Easter Sunday and Everyone loved it!!!! I will make this again. very easy to prepare."
