but instead of chocolate, vanilla, or tapioka... how about something a little different? well howard has a corn pudding recipe that you're whole family will love. "have you ever wondered how certain dishes came to be? let's take this corn pudding for example. native americans first introduced early settlers to the method of cooking corn with water. after some time, the settlers added eggs, cream, and butter . making it more of a custard. well, let's fast forward to today, and although there are many variations, its popularity is still going strong. let me show you the shortcut version that we're making today. all we do is combine a few cans of corn that we've drained, along with a couple cans of cream style corn, a bit of milk, some sugar, a few beaten eggs and a couple
6:24 am
tablespoons of cornstarch. once that's all mixed, we pour it into a baking dish and into the oven it goes for just over an hour, or until the center is set and the top is golden. and even after all these years, you still can change it up if you want. try using frozen corn instead of canned, or brown sugar instead of white. you get the idea. and when it comes out of the oven all piping hot, get ready for a side dish that's as welcoming at a weeknight dinner as it is on your holiday table. i do hope you'll go online and get the recipe for what we call, "easy corn pudding," so you can share the recipe . and the story behind it, the next time everyone is sitting around the table. i'm howard with kelly in the mr. food test kitchen, where today we found an "historic way" for you to say . "ooh it's so good!!" " jessica rae: " " coming up.... hillary clinton will return to capitol hill to give her testimony before the house
