Recipe: Corn Pudding

This coming Saturday I'll be hosting a potluck. Cooking for a crowd is something I love to do. I will be covering the entrees for this event, however, when I'm going somewhere else and have to bring food one of my family recipes is often requested. That recipe is my family's version of corn pudding. The recipe is one my mother made when I was a child, and she still does for 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.
