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 (remove seeds if you want less heat which I do for guests)
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Dash onion powder
 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
In a large bowl, lightly beat eggs; add half/half and beat. Stir in the remaining ingredients, adding the corn last. Blend well. Pour 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

  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.

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