Anne’s Corn Pudding
My mother-in-law is one of those cooks that you aspire to be. Cooking comes as naturally to her as breathing. This recipe has been requested so many times, by so many people, that Anne finally had to pause as she put it all together one day and actually measure out ingredients so she’d be able to tell people something. It’s looked for anxiously at church homecomings and family get-togethers, and emulated zealously. So here it is, as told by Anne:
Drain one can of corn. In mixing bowl, mix together a heaping 1/2 cup of sugar, 3 tbsp flour, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, 1 tsp vanilla, and 2 cups of milk. Beat in 3 eggs. Add corn.
Melt 1/2 stick of margarine or butter and pour into the bottom of a 13×9 baking dish. Pour corn mixture over top of butter and bake at 400 degrees for 30 to 45 minutes (depending on how fast your oven cooks)–until center is just set and jiggly.
