  1. Thanks for this recipe Sabrina! I can’t find cream style corn easily. Do you have any suggestions on how to make this using only corn kernels?

    1. I don’t have one to recommend but I’m sure you could find a recipe online for cream style corn using fresh corn or maybe Amazon offeres it? Hope this helps.

  2. Have you tried this recipe with Almond milk and coconut sugar as subs for Milk and White Sugar? Just wondering if there are any tweaks needed if subbing out some of the ingredients.

  3. Thank you I always knew something was missing from my creamed spinach and corn pudding
    I will be making this for thanksgiving
