  • 3 tablespoons cornmeal
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt or to taste
  • 1/3 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter melted and cooled
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 5 cups (20oz) corn kernels thawed if frozen
  • 3 green onions thinly sliced


  • Preheat oven to 350F / 175C and lightly oil a 9x13 baking pan.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine cornmeal, corn starch, baking powder, salt and nutmeg.
  • Beat the eggs in a separate large mixing bowl, then stir in the half-and-half, melted butter and cheese.
  • Add in the spiced flour mixture and stir until completely combined and smooth.
  • Fold in the corn and green onions and then pour the batter into the prepared baking dish. Tap gently so the batter evens out.
  • Bake for about 35 -38 mins until the pudding is golden brown around the edges. Test by inserting a toothpick or skewer in the center. The casserole is done when it comes out clean.
  • Cool for 10 minutes, then slice and serve warm or cold.
