Corn Pudding

Our amazing neighbor Jack who grows all sorts of veggies has some super sweet corn this year, I was lucky to get my hands on some! We barbecued a bunch of the ears, took the kernels off, and I decided to surprise my corn loving husband with Corn Pudding. He swooned, literally!

For 6 individual (4-ounce) custard ceramic ramekins
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter (use some for greasing ramekins)
  • 2 eggs plus 2 yolks, beaten
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 3 cups fresh corn, cut from the cob
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg
    1 cup of cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 325-degrees. Butter molds or casserole.

Beat eggs, stir in sugar, cream, butter and milk. Add corn, cheese and salt.

Mix thoroughly with whisk, pour into baking dishes and sprinkle with nutmeg.

Bake in water bath for 45 minutes or until custard is set (it took about 65 minutes for mine to be done). Serve in the ramekins or invert onto a plate

I haven't had corn pudding in 13 years! I remember because I was pregnant with the twins at the time! My hubby loves corn. I think your neighbor Jack needs to relocate next to me!
