Good hot or cold! This corn casserole side dish is a cross between corn bread and pudding. It's moist and sweet and similar in texture to a spoon bread. I prefer this to traditional corn pudding as it is a bit firmer so you can slice it and it holds up well for a buffet supper. Another favorite way to enjoy it is to caramelize whole seeded plum tomatoes in a little bacon fat and serve those on top of a wedge of the corn pudding bread with a little bacon on the side.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. Butter a 9-inch iron skillet or a 7-by-11-inch baking dish.
  3. Whisk together the cornmeal, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.
  4. Pulse the buttermilk, cream, eggs, and melted butter in a blender or food processor until smooth.
  5. Add the corn and pulse a few more times (the mixture should be lumpy with visible kernels).
  6. Whisk the buttermilk mixture into cornmeal mixture.
  7. Pour into a prepared skillet or baking dish.
  8. Bake 35 to 40 minutes, until the edges are golden brown and the center remains slightly jiggly.
  9. Transfer to a rack to cool.
  10. Serve warm or room temperature.

I'm a real fan of corn pudding & always enjoy making a new version! This one is no exception & the recipe makes A GREAT TASTING FROM-SCRATCH CORN DISH! The only changes I made here were to use frozen corn (thawed) & to bake the souffle in an 8-inch square baking dish for about 43 minutes!

Light, fluffy, easy & delicious! A great way to use up leftover corn-on-the-cob! This will become part of my regular menu!
