Slow Cooker Sweet Corn Pudding

 Slow Cooker Sweet Corn Pudding is the perfect side dish
Serve this decadent Slow Cooker Sweet Corn Pudding right next to the holiday ham this season. And if you are lucky enough to have leftovers, it tastes just as amazing the next day.

How many of you love corn pudding? I thought so. It's a dish steeped deeply in Southern tradition, but we love it on the west coast too! I don't even wait for the holidays or a special occasion to enjoy it, Sunday dinner is a good enough reason for me to get it on the table.

I know eggs are traditional in many/all corn pudding recipes, which does help make a nice crust on top. However, I prefer a softer edge (and top), with bits and pieces of golden brown goodness mixed into the whole dish. Those preferences are what propelled me to come up with my own version, which is mostly crustless, but still absolutely delicious.

Slow Cooker Sweet Corn Pudding the mixture
The slow cooker not only keeps your oven free, but keeps this corn pudding creamy, just the way I like it. This is what it looks like before it is cooked.

When finished, you can see the edges are a nice golden brown, but it's not a thick crust. There will be some liquid in the middle and on the sides when finished. Delightful little pockets of cream cheese will also surface in the middle. You're going to love all of it.

Slow Cooker Sweet Corn Pudding will have you back for seconds

Slow Cooker Sweet Corn Pudding yumminess
I scoop my corn pudding into a serving dish, incorporating the golden edges. It needs 15 minutes out of the slow cooker to set, meld and cool down a bit. It will burn your mouth if you don't let it cool slightly. I know this for a fact.

Slow Cooker Sweet Corn Pudding is delicious
Yes,  it's hard to wait before taking a bite, but you must resist.

Slow Cooker Sweet Corn Pudding is an awesome side dish
The leftovers are amazing, just heat them slightly in the microwave and enjoy!

Slow Cooker Sweet Corn Pudding

Recipe from: Created by Cathy Pollak for | Serves: 10-12


  • 2 (11 oz) cans whole kernal corn with juice
  • 2 (14.75 oz) cans creamed corn
  • 2-1/2 cups corn muffin mix
  • 8 Tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • 4 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sour cream, room temperature
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  • In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well. Pour into the bowl of 6 quart slow cooker. Cover and heat on low for 3-1/2 hours. Then turn slow cooker to high for an additional 2 hours.
  • When finished cooking the edges will be brown and there may be some liquid butter/ floating on top. This is okay. I prefer to scoop out the pudding from the slow cooker and incorporate the golden edges into the whole dish. Let it cool slightly before serving. It is one of those dishes that tastes best after sitting a while and cooling down. It's too hot to taste right when it's done cooking.Scoop it from the slow cooker bowl and give it 15 minutes to come together and cool down.
  • Note: Cooking times can change if not using a 6 quart slow cooker.

    Do you think I can substitute fresh corn for the canned kernels? And do you think it’ll cook up the same if I double the recipe?

    Can you tell me the bake time if I do it in the oven?

  11. Lily 14

    Can I prep this ahead of time and then when i’m ready to cook it, give it a stir and turn on the crockpot?
