Sweet Corn Pudding

  • Yield: 8 servings


  • 1 teaspoon plus 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons dried fine bread crumbs
  • 4 ears young corn
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/2 cup chopped bacon
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped bell peppers
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal


  • Preheat the oven to 375ºF.
  • Butter the bottom and sides of an 8 X 2-inch square (8 cups) casserole dish with 1 teaspoon of the butter. Sprinkle the bread crumbs evenly on the bottom and sides of the dish.
  • Cut the corn off the cobs by thinly slicing across the top of the kernels and then cutting across a second time to release the milk from the corn. Scrape the cob once or twice to extract any remaining milk. You should have about 2 cups of corn with milk.
  • Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the corn, 1 teaspoon of the salt, and the cayenne. Sauté for about 2 minutes. Add the bacon and sauté for about 4 minutes, or until slightly crisp. Add the onions and bell peppers and cook for about 3 minutes, or until slightly wilted. Remove from the heat.
  • Combine the cream, milk, and eggs in a mixing bowl. Beat with a wire whisk until the mixture is frothy. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon salt, the black pepper, nutmeg, and cheese. Add this to the corn mixture and stir to mix well. Add the cornmeal and mix well.
  • Pour into the casserole dish and bake for about 1 hour, or until golden.
  • Serve immediately.
