A Maize Zing Corn Pudding and Trivia

I’ve been decobbing a lot lately, it’s the nature of the season! Here is some corn trivia I found rather amazing. Each ear of corn has about 600 kernels arranged in bands of 14-16. One bushel of corn contains a total of about 90,000 kernels and there is one strand of silk for each kernel! Something to think about while you’re de-cobbing.

Warning, this A Maize Zing Corn Pudding is extremely popular. Guests invariably return for seconds and sometimes thirds. I recommend doubling the recipe if you’re entertaining hearty eaters! Mr. Fabulous can eat the whole thing in one sitting and still stay thin! If your not feeding hearty eaters, you can halve the recipe with great results. 

4 eggs, room temperature
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
6 tablespoons sugar
1½ teaspoons salt
1½ cups milk
4 cups fresh cooked corn
Canola oil for casserole dish
6 tablespoons butter, cut into chunks
Preheat oven to 350°. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, add flour and whisk until well incorporated. Add sugar, salt and milk; stir in corn, pour into a greased casserole dish to accommodate. Dot the top with chunks of butter. Bake for 45 minutes, then set oven to Broil and top brown. Yield: 8 servings
