Save the canned cream corn for another day and give this recipe a shot! For other delicious side dishes you can make at home, try my Skins on Mashed Potatoes and Roasted Parmesan Green Beans.
I admit I remember loving the creamed corn that came out of a can. Little did I know that canned cream corn doesn’t even contain cream! I guess all the liquid counted as the creaminess?!? I wanted to make a creamed corn with a little more substance and density, and actually have some cream in the recipe! This is one of the BEST tasting creamed corn recipes you will ever try, this I can guarantee. Everyone who has ever tried it asked for the recipe and now I can share it with everyone at once! 🙂
Can I Use Fresh, Canned, or Frozen Corn in Creamed Corn?
I used frozen corn. But yes, you can use fresh or canned if you want, however, I can’t guarantee perfect results. And be sure to drain the liquid from canned corn.

Homemade creamed corn is cut from fresh ears of corn out of the garden. Shuck the husks and silk wash it and cut the corn kernals off with a sharp knife in a bowl or pan. take the back of the knife and scrape the ears removing the white milky substance and the remaining pieces of kernals off the ears. Stir up good and you can freeze it or cook it following your recipe. You can add some milk or cream however you prefer. That is real homemade creamed corn! When corn was in season we made it and put in freezer for the winter time. You can pressure can it, but quicker to freeze it.
Can I make this cream corn I day ahead and then bake the next day? Also why use frozen corn and not can? Thank you
fresh corn in the summer fix like this is delicious 😋
If I make ahead how long in over to heat? Lower temp, longer time?
I don’t see any amounts of any of the ingredients! I planned on making this tomorrow for Thanksgiving! Help!

I love cream corn it so good
Do you have a recipe for corn pudding? not with any type of corn bread in it, more like a custard>
Use oregano instead of basil. Gives corn a great flavor!
Do you have crock pot Mac and cheese
Interesting. I was thinking it would be good garnished with chopped cilantro. Maybe, the garnish may depend on what the main meal is.
Sounds yummy. My husband always loved this
