The first time I had Corn pudding – aka corn pie, cornbread pudding, corn pie casserole, was at a Christmas dinner hosted by my one of my Aunts and Uncles, who by the way are Trinidadian. When I tell you the Trinidad Corn Pie that my Uncle made was addicting, it was ADDICTING. Days and weeks went by and I couldn’t stop thinking of how amazingly delicious that dish was. So of course I had to get the recipe. Now as many of you can probably relate, getting recipes with exact measurements from our Aunts, Uncles, Mothers, Fathers and Grandparents isn’t exactly easy, because they typically don’t formally measure anything.
So after a lengthy phone call and I was able to gather the ingredients and hints of measurements to make my own Corn Pie Casserole. So here it is for you all to enjoy as well. One addition you can add to take this recipe from delicious to out of this world, is cheese, about 1/4 cup can be added to the batter and about a cup can be sprinkled over the top! This recipe is so simple and easy to make, and requires very little ingredients, which I’m sure you already have in your pantry and fridge! Make this perfect corn bread pudding as a side dish during the holiday’s or enjoy this great comfort food side dish with your next meal!
