  • Serves

    serves 8


This recipe is adapted from The Neighborhood House Cookbook, compiled by East Hampton's Women's Service Club, a "small group of ladies still carrying on the tradition of old-fashioned, home-cooked covered dish suppers."


  • 5 ears of corn
  • 2 tsp. sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 2 tbsp. melted butter
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper


Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Remove and reserve corn kernels, discarding cobs. Put half the corn in a blender or food processor; set aside remaining corn.

Step 2

Add sugar, eggs half-and-half, butter, nutmeg, and salt and pepper to blender. Process for 1–2 minutes, then pour into a greased 5" × 9" loaf pan. Gently mix in the remaining corn, and bake until golden and a toothpick inserted in the middle of the pudding comes out clean, about 1 hour.
