This is Thanksgiving favorite at our house. It is a southern side dish, not a dessert. Edited: As I said, this is a Southern dish. It is sweet. If you want to cook it in a flat dish, be sure that you cut back the cooking time. The consistency is very much like a soft pudding.

We just moved and I couldn't find my grandmother's recipe for corn pudding so I made this one instead. While it was different than my granmother's, it was delicious!! Everyone raved about how good it was. It is definitely on the sweet side, but yummy.

It was promising but it ended up too juicy. It never firmed up and it was way too sweet. I’m a sweet tooth too!
