This recipe for corn custard makes a tasty side dish. It works well with canned corn and is out of this world in summer when sweet corn is in season.


  • 2 cups corn kernels (fresh or canned)
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter


Mix corn with dry ingredients. Add eggs, milk, and butter. Place in a buttered baking dish or casserole set in a shallow pan of hot water. Bake at 350 degrees F for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.

    A tasty side, even in summer. Since sweet corn is in season, I used it, and left out the added sugar. I had fresh thyme, so I chopped some and added it to the mixture. Baked in an 8X8 buttered casserole. Very tasty.
