Hearty Corn Pudding Recipe

Hearty Corn Pudding Recipe

Corn is a staple around our house in summer-and so is this comforting dish. Every year, we grow corn in our backyard garden. I keep several packages of our homegrown corn in the freezer so I can make recipes like this in any season.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 35 min. + standing YIELD:8 servings


  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 can (15-1/4 ounces) whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 can (14-3/4 ounces) cream-style corn
  • 4 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Maple syrup, optional


  • 1. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, cream, sugar, cornstarch, vanilla, salt and cayenne until smooth. Stir in the corn, cream-style corn, bacon and onions. Pour into a greased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese.
  • 2. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand for 5-10 minutes before serving. Serve with syrup if desired. Yield: 8 servings.

Recipe Note

Editor's Note: This corn pudding has a soft texture and may be served with a spoon, or it can be cut after standing for a bit.

"Just read this and want to make it for dinner tonight. But I will have to improvise a bit - have only frozen corn, will use the whole pack, putting half of it into the blender to simulate (I hope!) creamed corn; I have half 'n half (fat-free), will use that instead of cream; finely chopped Spanish onion - no scallions in the house just now. The seasonings sound perfect - a mix of hot and sweet. And I can't wait to try it with the maple syrup!! Wow - speaking of comfort food!"

"This has become a family favorite! It's good enough that that we don't put any maple syrup on it. I have also used regular onion before."

"I cut the sugar to 1 1/2 T. and used frozen corn instead of canned whole kernel corn and did not use the optional maple syrup. It was delicious and a wonderful creamy texture!"
