This year I plan to share more recipes that I can eat – low to no carb. I haven’t shared many of those recipes, but, I want to be able to eat what I share with you! lol
But, having said that this Corn Pudding Recipe is one that is definitely NOT low to no carb! But, I wanted to share it with you because my family loves it. It’s my Grandmother’s recipe and the only time I cook it is Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.
My Grandmother’s Corn Pudding Recipe
This is a very easy side dish that can be cooked for everyday dinners or special occasions. My grandmother always had it for special occasions and it was one of my favorites growing up. So, when I had kids and started cooking holiday dinners it was something I made sure was on the menu.
My kids have grown to love the favorites I grew up with. My mom’s and grandmother’s recipes are family favorites and when the kids come to holiday dinners they always devour them.

I have gone very low carb and sugar-free which means I don’t eat most of them anymore, but to my kids it wouldn’t be a holiday diner without them.
It’s nice to know that as much as thigs change the good things remain the same – like passing down recipes through the family.
The evaporated milk and flour in the recipe help the dish to “set” so that it’s a bit firm and not at all runny. That’s the goal. I have heard of people adding jalapenos and things to the recipe but I have never tried any of that.
This dish is a “for sure” southern dish, it’s been around forever but not many people know what it is or how to make it.
