Mary Anne here. This recipe is an oldie but a goodie. I pulled it out of the archives this past Thanksgiving and it was a tremendous hit. I don’t know why I had forgotten such a delightful side dish, as it is soft and creamy with just a whisper of sweetness. The pudding is sort of a “cheaters” soufflé – all of the taste and elegant presentation, but it will never fall! It complements both meat and poultry.
Creamy Corn Pudding
