This homemade cream-style corn is sweet and delicious. Then recipe is made with freshly scraped corn, butter, half-and-half, and simple seasonings. 


  • 6 ears fresh corn
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon flour blended with 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 3/4 cup milk or half-and-half


Cut corn from cobs then scrape with a sharp knife to get all of the milk and pulp. Melt butter in a large skillet. Stir in corn and juices, the 3 tablespoons water, and sugar. Cook until corn is tender. Stir in flour-water mixture, salt, and pepper, blending well. Gradually add the milk, stirring constantly. Cook for about 2 minutes longer. Do not let boil.
Serves 4 to 6.

Never Knew Corn Could Taste This Good, Member Aprettyblackwoman

Made it and loved it. I am trying to use more fresh food. Amazing. Added a little more sugar for the kids and used a little more half and half to make it creamier (not much of either). And I used peaches and cream corn. Wonderful recipe.
