What is Corn Pudding?

Homemade corn pudding is a favorite side dish with a creamy custard-like texture and of course lots of corn flavor.

This dish needs only a few ingredients, mainly frozen and creamed corn, and it comes together in just minutes.

Ingredients

This corn pudding recipe is made from scratch without corn muffin mix or Jiffy mix.

  • Eggs & Milk – Eggs and milk give this corn pudding a custard like texture which is what makes it different than a cornbread casserole.
  • Brown Sugar – We love adding a little bit of sweetness to corn dishes.
  • Creamed Corn – Creamed corn is really not optional (and is different than homemade creamed corn).
  • Corn Kernels –  You can use either canned or frozen corn kernels (or fresh corn on the cob if you have it).
  • Cornstarch – Cornstarch helps the pudding set as it bakes.
