This dish is always requested for every family function. The recipe is one my mother made often when I was a child, and she still does for any social functions. This is a custard style corn pudding, and it is really sweet. It’s not meant to be healthy. It’s meant to be jaw-dropping delicious. It is deceptively simple to make. I hope you will give it a try and that you enjoy it. Note: This recipe is easily halved to make a more reasonable family dinner size in case you are not cooking for a huge crowd.
