Yield: 6-8 servings.

Corn pudding

2 cups (3-4 ears) fresh, raw corn*
1 egg
½ cup water, divided
1 cup sugar
Pinch salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons flour
5 tablespoons butter

Preheat oven to 350º. In a bowl, combine corn, egg, half of water, sugar, salt, vanilla, and flour. Pour mixture into a greased 8 x 8-inch baking dish or 6-8 single-serving ramekins. Dot with pats of butter. Bake about 25 to 30 minutes, until lightly browned. If pudding is becoming dry, stir in remaining water. Continue baking 10 to 15 minutes, until bubbling and browned.

*Note: If fresh corn is unavailable, substitute a 15-ounce can, drained. Use the “corn water” in the recipe instead of tap water.

Cinnamon Whipped Cream

1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons confectioner’s sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Place all ingredients into a medium mixing bowl. Whip on highest speed, until soft peaks form.
