5-Step Cream Corn Recipe
- Mix together the corn, cream, salt, sugar, pepper, and butter in a sauce pan
- Separately mix the milk and flour
- Stir it all together
- Let it cook (be sure to cook it long enough so that it can get thick, but it shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes or so). If it’s under-cooked, it will be runny.
- Add the freshly shredded Parmesan cheese and you are set!
This homemade cream corn is the perfect side dish as the weather starts to get a little cooler because it is warm and toasty. It will heat your body right up and keep your tummy happy – total comfort food!

Homemade Cream Corn Recipe
- 20 ounces frozen corn
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/4 teaspoons pepper
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
- Add frozen corn, heavy cream, salt, sugar, pepper, and butter to a large pot.
- In a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk together the 1/2 cup milk and flour (this is what will help thicken the cream). Stir into corn mixture and cook over medium heat, stirring often so the cream doesn't burn, until mixture is thickened and corn cooked through. If you don't cook it until it's thickened, it will be runny (although it will still taste wonderful).
- Remove from heat and stir in 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!!
Get the cream nice and thick before you keep warm in a slow cooker, if you are taking it to a gathering. Can easily be doubled or tripled for a crowd!
