  • 1 ½ cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided

  • ¾ cup whole milk

  • 2 large eggs

  • 3 cups thawed frozen corn

  • ¾ cup fine yellow cornmeal

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • Chopped scallions for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with cooking spray; set aside. Combine 1 cup Cheddar, milk and eggs in a medium bowl. Combine corn, cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Add the egg mixture to the corn mixture; stir until combined.

  2. Transfer half of the mixture to a blender; process until mostly smooth, about 15 seconds. Return the blended mixture to the bowl and stir to combine.

  3. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish; sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup Cheddar. Bake until set and lightly browned, 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with scallions, if desired, and serve.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
