What is Corn Pudding?

Corn pudding is a Southern baked dish made of whole kernel corn (and sometimes fresh, creamed, canned, or frozen corn), a binding agent, milk, and cheese. This savory pudding originated in Appalachia and has since spread to different areas. Corn pudding is easy to make, pairs well with most meats, and is served hot or cold. 

Ingredients

  • Creamed corn, 14-15 ounces
  • Sweet corn, about 12-15 ounces
  • Shredded sharp cheddar cheese – Make it spicier with shredded pepper jack cheese, or use a smoked gouda for a smokier corn pudding.
  • Evaporated milk, 12 ounces – If you do not have evaporated milk on hand, reach for whole milk, half and half, or coconut milk.
  • Large eggs
  • Flour
  • Butter or olive oil
  • Fresh chives
  • Granulated sugar
  • Salt and black pepper
  • Allspice
