This was easy to put together and tasty! I'm having more of it for lunch tomorrow, and I'm looking forward to it. I used milk instead of heavy whipping cream to save on some calories, but other than that, I followed the recipe to a T.

This is a very tasty recipe! I used regular milk and a can of creamed corn. We ate this with chili and it added a nice sweetness.

We absolutely love Corn Cake, but I have never tried to make it from scratch. I tried this recipe. It was absolutely delicious and authentic. Extremely moist and easy to make! I totally forgot to add the heavy whipping cream, but it really didn't seem to matter. I purposely altered the recipe to use cream corn instead of throwing whole corn into a blender. Since the cream corn has more moisture in it, I also cut back on the water by 50%. Just wonderful. Will definitely reuse this recipe from now on!
