When I was growing up my grandmother made a cornbread that was baked in the oven but I remember it having the consistency of a heavy cheesecake rather than the standard crumbly cornbread we have today. Over the years the recipe has been lost. Does anyone have any similar recipes to this description?

could it have been corn pudding and not cornbread??

nanny - what is corn pudding? (going to look up a few recipes now)

I think it could almost be called a cross between the two. I have a corn pudding recipe made with very creamed corn. This one I'm referring to is a very smooth, almost a hard cheesecake type dish. I know it was fifty years ago, but I can still remember it. Unfortunately when I got all of my mother's recipes there was nothing in the collection like that. I'm hoping that my grandmother didn't just put things together and never write it down! Which of course, she could have!

my nanny did corn pudding just using the "scraping" of the cob-- hence the pudding- the cut off part would be for another meal-- the recipes here call for boxed mix- so i would just go with my regular cornbread mixture and add to

It sounds like corn pudding to me too bdnewell.

she always used cream or buttermilk- extra eggs and of course back then- bacon grease or lard-- i think you just have to play with it til you get it like you want- maybe "drain" a can of creamed corn & use the creamy part- nannys never had the kernals either

oh - and cornstarch- i remember that- because she let me stir it--

Sounds like "spoon bread". It is made in a dish and served with a spoon.

I know it wasn't spoon bread. Nanny129, how much cornstarch would you think? I'm thinking that my be it...

Ruth Rae, I'm sure it wasn't polenta, but that's a good suggestion....

Sorry...Linda....I don't think it would have been polenta....not back in the 1950's on the Eastern Shore of Virginia....
