Tennessee Honey Corn Pudding

Do you know what Tennessee Honey is-it's my all time favorite
                                   Jack Daniel's Whiskey

                I found this recipe on a Christmas Site called

                 It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

I didn't add the Jack Daniels. Divingabe doesn't like Jack, and I also didn't have any OJ in the fridge. I also subbed cayenne pepper for a few habaneros.

When I served this dish I wasn't so sure about it at first. It was ok but nothing really special. The next day it firmed up and all the flavors blended together and I knew I had a winner.

5 large eggs
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
3 tablespoons Tennessee Honey (Jack Daniel’s Whiskey)
1 tablespoon orange juice
1/2 cup half/half
4 tablespoons cornstarch
2 (15.25-ounce) cans whole kernel white corn( drained)
2 (14.75-ounce) cans cream-style white corn
1 small green cayenne pepper, chopped fine 
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Dash onion powder
 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper


Heat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large bowl, lightly beat eggs.

 Add the  half/half to the eggs in the bowl and mix well.

 Stir in the remaining ingredients and add the corn last and thoroughly mix. 

Add the  mixture into a buttered 2 quart casserole dish.

 Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for one hour or until golden brown.

 Remove from oven and allow to sit for 10 minutes.

 Serve warm



  1. Jj, That looks wonderful. Me with my eggie issue I'd lose one egg.

    Thanks for the Heads up.


  2. Ooooh, that looks delicious! ~Aurora

  3. Hi-Im going to make this today and was wondering if you drain the corn before adding. Also, I just realized that I picked up regular yellow corn instead of white....I hope this doesnt change it to much. I will let you know how it turns out. Thank you:)

  4. Thanks for stopping by! Yes, I drained the corn and I've made it with both white and yellow. We couldn't taste the difference!

    Hint- let it sit for those 10 minutes. We are always ready to eat and this does firm up if it sits and like I said loved it for leftovers.

    Happy New Year.

  5. So thrilled y'all like my recipe - it is delicious and either corn is fine or you can mix them - yellow and white. It does need to set for 10 - 15 minutes out of the oven and is good warm or at room temperature. We've got more Southern/TN cooking at our site if you ever want to visit with us at www.twirlandtaste.com. Happy holidays and as always happy twirls!

  6. This looks great and I will have to try it. It reminds me of a spoon bread recipe I found somewhere.

  7. This sounds delicious! PINNED! And thank you for joining the Found & Foraged link up party. We hope to see you again this Saturday! Happy Thanksgiving!
