Homemade Creamed Corn

Creamed Corn

I hate Creamed Corn.

Sorry, Dad, I know you taught me never to use the word “Hate”.

But it is true, I hate the stuff. Oh and it takes horrible photos.

I’ve only had the canned {shutter} variety before ,and chalked it up there on the nasty foods list along with baked beans.

Then a day that I have marked on the calendar happened, the turn around day for me.

I was introduced to the real version, homemade creamed corn.

I cried a little.

Yesterday my BFF, Bobbi brought me over some fresh ears of corn, and I had a flashback of creamy corned goodness.

So I made some.

I cried a little…again.


It’s kinda a no brainer, you need some fresh corn, cream , butter, sugar and some salt/pepper.

Easy peasy.

So if you are like me and barfed a little bit when someone even mentioned creamed corn to you………….

have no fear, Homemade Cream Corn is here!

Homemade creamed corn.
  • 2½ cups, Fresh Corn Kernels, about 5 cobs and the milk from the cob
  • 1 tablespoon Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Flour
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter,melted
  • 1 cup (8 oz.) Heavy Cream
  • ½ teaspoon Coarse Kosher Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Pepper
  1. *to milk the corn* After you cut the corn kernels from the fresh corn, take the back of the knife and firmly scrape the bare corn cob. You will get a milky substance that you can incorporate into the corn for extra flavor.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the corn, corn milk,flour and butter, mix until incorporated.
  3. Add the corn mixture into a large skillet over medium heat and cook for 5 minutes, stirring often.
  4. Add the heavy cream and cook for an additional 10-15 minutes, stirring often until the sauce has thickened to your liking.
  5. Season with salt and pepper.

    Yes I agree, canned creamed corn is disgusting. With that said I am still looking for a good homemade version, maybe your recipe is the one!

    It seems very sweet and milky. Probably serve with French bread would be really nice. 🙂

    I have never even heard of this before, it must not be a “thing” in the UK. But I agree, it does sound a little…yuk…for want of a better word!

    We grew up on creamed corn, because North Dakota wasn’t really the best place for fresh produce. I never liked it either, until I made my own. I add jalapenos because I like things a little racy.

    I remember enjoying homemade creamed corn once at an Amish restaurant growing up – it was amazing! I’ve never made it at home though – great idea!

    I am eating this creamed corn right now (leftovers from last nights dinner). I, too, HATE creamed corn… not any longer. This recipe was easy and the corn is delicious. I also tried your ‘worlds best potato salad’ on the 4th of July… it was a BIG hit, more liked than the slow cooked pork ribs.

      It means the world to me!

    I’m so glad that you found the love for creamed corn. That stuff is amazing! But I agree, homemade is the only way to go. I tried it that way for the first time about a year ago and completely fell in love.

    Hey there! My mom does a yummy little twist and uses cream cheese instead. A little hot sauce or some chip dip can jazzy up what used to be a puker for me too!!

    Can you freeze leftovers?
