What is corn pudding made of? Recipes may vary but generally this recipe is a combination of whole corn, creamed corn, eggs, some type of dairy and thickeners…such as corn muffin mix or a flour mixture. Some folks top the dish with cheese while others prefer not to then it’s baked until set.

Can corn pudding be made in advance? Yes. You can prepare this casserole two days in advance and reheat.

    Our normal corn casserole recipe doesn’t have cheese in it, but I’ve been thinking of doing an version with extra goodies. Now I have to do that ASAP as yours looks so good!

    I thought since my daughter does NOT like canned corn OR creamed style, i could have leftovers. I was wrong. Will be making this again.
