  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 baking dish; set aside.
  2. Beat eggs until fluffy in a large bowl. Stirring constantly, pour in melted margarine. Stir in sugar, whole kernel corn, and cream-style corn until well combined. Dissolve the cornstarch in the milk; combine with the corn mixture. Stir in vanilla. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the pudding is puffed and golden, and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean; about 1 1/2 hours.

Yes, a southern favorite....as a dessert. My friend makes a great version of this and taught me the recipe, except she doesn't measure!!! So, I had to get my own measurements. These are pretty close, except I use about 3/4 cup of white sugar, or sometimes 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup light brown. Also I use evaporated milk for a creamier pudding. Flour works fine if you are out of cornstarch. Also a few flaor enhancing spices....1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg. Best thing about this is that it's a "dump" recipe - mix in one bowl and bake slowly. Enjoy with a cup of coffee for breakfast too!!!


This turned out well. It was a great addition to our Easter Dinner. I did modify this slightly though. I cut the butter to just 1/4 cup, the sugar to 1/3 cup. I sprinkled some nutmeg and a little cinnamon on it as well. Baked it in a round dish instead of the 9 x 13, at 400 degrees because that was the time for the other 2 dishes that needed to go in the oven and just kept checking on it to make sure that it wasn't burning or to check when it was done. I received various complements on it.

WE LOVE THIS DISH!!! I've made it 3x already and everyone absolutely loves it. It's the perfect side dish. You can prepare it ahead of time, then stick it in the oven and "fuhgetaboutit"!
