Sweet Corn Pudding with Mango Jam

Corn for dessert.  Sure!

Eliot's Eats

This seasonal treat was inspired by a dessert menu at a new restaurant in Tulsa, Torero.


Although we didn’t taste this particular dessert, we did try the other two on the menu.


The chocolate custard and double-decker shortbread cookies from Torero.

The combination of the sweet corn with the mango jam just stuck with me and I had to give it a try. I think this corn pudding would be an unexpected yet delicious final course for a Thanksgiving menu.   The original recipe can be found at Epicurious.  I cut the recipe down for a dessert for two.   I also took out the sugar and added honey and a bit of nutmeg and vanilla.

Sweet Corn Pudding

1 c. frozen corn kernels, thawed
1 large egg
1/4 c. + 1 T. half and half
1 1/2 T.  honey
2 T.  butter, room temperature
1/2 T. all purpose flour
1/2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. sea salt
1/4 t. Vanilla
dash of nutmeg
softened butter to prepare baking dishes
2 T. Turbinado sugar

Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter two individual serving baking dishes.

Blend all ingredients in processor or blender until almost smooth. Pour batter into prepared dishes.

Bake pudding until brown and center is just set, about 45 minutes. Cool 10 minutes.

Now, I will just have to revisit Torero to see how close I got.

    Corn does occasionally show up in sweet dishes — I once tried a recipe for a layer cake with cornmeal in the batter. Your dish sounds very nicely balanced in flavor.

  • Sweet corn and mango…I would have never thought of putting them together…that’s a very creative and delicious looking dessert.

  • Sweet corn and mango looks like the perfect combo especially for Thanksgiving that is approaching soon!

    Well this looks like a delightful dessert! I have had sweet corn puddings before but served as a savory dish. I love this conversion to a dessert wih the DElicious mango jam.

    I haven’t made a corn pudding in years! The kind I make is the New England kind, but I have to say yours looks tons better. Really good — thanks. And Happy Thanksgiving!

  • Wowzer! I love this recipe! I clicked on it immediately because I am a mango fiend. Thinking back on it, I don’t think I’ve ever had sweet corn pudding.
    Football season is potluck season in my world. I’ve already started thinking about unique dishes to bring this season. This one is goin’ on the list, lady.
