Wednesdays Unplugged – Creamy Corn Pudding



"Love is the virtue of the heart; Sincerity the virtue of the mind; Courage the virtue of the spirit; Decision the virtue of the will." ~ Frank Lloyd Wright, The Organic Commandment


NOTE: I spend my Wednesdays Unplugged from appointments. It's my day to stay home, enjoy cooking and welcome our kids and grandkids for dinner in the evening. We end our meal with quotes from the Norwegian 'Quote Cup' passed on to me from my grandmother. I share a quote and a recipe here each week, and sometimes some photos of family fun. I love trying new recipes…and love getting recipes you would like to share!


Angela and I spend last Saturday enjoying not only the beautiful fall day but also their annual Docomomo fall tour visiting 6 Twin Cities mid-century and modern homes. It was great fun! We stopped at her charming and cozy home at the end of the tour and I thought Frank Lloyd Wright's Organic Commandment hanging in her office was the perfect ending to the day.


I found this week's recipe in my file, but have no idea where it came from. It was delicious, but my husband said he wasn't sure it was worth all the work. You can decide for yourself. I thought it could be a good addition to Thanksgiving dinner instead of the more traditional scalloped corn.


  • 4 tablespoons butter Corn pudding1
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 15 ounce can cream-style corn
  • 15 ounce can whole kernel corn (or 2 cups frozen, thawed)
  • 3 eggs, separated

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat; add flour, stirring until mixture is well blended. Gradually stir in the milk; add sugar and salt. Cook, whisking constantly, until smooth and thickened. Mixture will be thick. Remove from heat and stir in cream-style and whole kernel corn.

Lightly beat egg yolks, and then add to the corn mixture. In a grease-free bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold egg whites into the mixture. Transfer to a 2-quart buttered casserole. Set the casserole in a larger pan and put in the oven. Add hot water to the large pan to a depth of about 1 inch. Bake for about 45 minutes.
