Easy Corn Pudding

I was in the mood for making some corn pudding with dinner. Holy cow, I didn't realize that I had so many corn pudding recipes....

Some with corn kernels, some not. Some with creamed corn only or some with regular corn AND creamed corn.
Some with cornmeal or some with corn muffin mix.
Some with buttermilk or some with sour cream.

And the winning corn pudding recipe choice? From She's Becoming Doughmesstic. Susan has such a myriad of recipes....she's fancy one day, down home the next, decorating cakes or catering. Emulating Julia on 100 bucks for food for the month (with a family of 3) Yep, she's a regular box of chocolates, I tell ya!

I love some recipes on occasion when you open the can/box, mix and bake. Done!

Corn Casserole
found on She's Becoming Doughmesstic....

1 (14 oz) can cream style corn
1 can whole kernel corn (I just filled the 'creamed' corn can with some frozen)
1 (8oz) package Jiffy Corn muffin mix
1 cup sour cream
1 stick butter, melted
1 egg, beaten
1-1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, stir together both corns, muffin mix, egg, sour cream and melted butter. Pour into greased 8X8 dish/pan. Bake for 45 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and top with cheese. Return to oven for 5-10 minute or until cheese is melted. Let stand for at least 5 minutes and then serve warm.

Cooks Notes:
  • I've had many versions and some are on the sweet side and some more savory. Although, this was tasty and moist, I was conflicted since the cornbread part was sweet and the cheese on top was not. I normally enjoy a sweet and salty combo. Since I enjoyed the EASE and how moist and corny this was, I'd just adjust the sweetness by substituting the creamed corn with another whole corn whirred in the food processor. That should cut down on some of the sugar. Texture-wise, LOVED this recipe.
  • OR I can nix the cheese and just enjoy it's sweetness.
  • I emailed Susan from Doughmesstic for her link to the recipe and she TRIED to credit Paula I trotted over to the 'butter queen bible' and NOPE Paula didn't use egg or cheese in my cookbook. So, good try's a DOUGHMESSTIC recipe....unless Paula is losing her mind and makes 10 different versions....well no WONDER....
