Corn Pudding Batter

  • cup sugar
  • 5 Tbsp butter melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups Homemade Cream Style Corn see notes for alternative
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp cayenne powder


  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • ½ cup brown sugar divided


  • Butter or grease your baking pan. 
  • Add ⅓ cup of sugar and 5 tablespoons of melted butter that has cooled some to a medium size mixing bowl. 
  • Add in 2 eggs and whisk until eggs are lightly beaten.
  • Add in 2 cups of homemade cream style corn or see notes for alternative. Mix to combine. 
  • Add 1 cup of cornmeal,¼ tsp sea salt, 1 tsp baking powder, and ¼ tsp of cayenne pepper. Mix until combined.  
  • Pour the batter into your prepared pan. Cover with foil or a silicone cover.
  • Place the pan on the rack in the low position. Add 1 cup of tap water to the inner pot. Place the rack into the Ninja Foodi. Put the pressure lid on and turn the valve to seal. Set the pressure on high for 20 minutes. Allow to natural release for 5 minutes and then manually release the remaining pressure.
  • Remove the silicone cover and allow to cool slightly. Mix up 1 Tablespoon of maple syrup, 1 Tablespoon of water, and ¼ cup of brown sugar. 
  • Poke holes about ¼" in diameter around the corn pudding. I use the end of a chopstick, but you can use a skewer or even fork. The holes will be smaller, but that will be fine.
  • Pour the mixture over the corn pudding and spread it out to cover the top and let it soak into the holes. 
  • Sprinkle a thin, even layer of brown sugar on the top. I used about ¼ cup of brown sugar. 
  • Place the baking pan back onto the rack in the low position and place the rack back into the Ninja Foodi. 
    Put the Air Crisper lid down and select broil. Broil for 7-12 minutes or until the brown sugar melts. Check on it frequently so the sugar doesn't burn. 
  • When it is brown and bubbly, remove and allow to cool for a few minutes. 
    To serve, you can cut slices or simply scoop it out! 



If you prefer you can use 1 cup of drained corn kernels and 1 cup of canned cream style corn instead of the 2 cups of Homemade Cream Style Corn
