Homemade Cream Style Corn

This homemade cream-style corn is naturally sweet, delicious and it is so easy to prepare. This recipe is made with fresh corn and simple seasonings. 

It's a pleasure to make your own cream style corn and enjoy eating a fresh version of this classic dish.

Yields: 1 Tin (14 oz) 

1.1/2 Cup Heaped Fresh Corn
2 Tablespoons Butter
1/3 Cup Water
2 Teaspoons Granulated Sugar
1 Tablespoon Heaped  All Purpose Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon coarsely ground Black Pepper
1  Cup Milk
Remove the husks and silk from the ears of corn and rinse well.  Stand an ear on on a wide bowl or plate and with a sharp knife, cut downwards through several rows. Don't cut too close to the cob; cut the corn kernels about 3/4 of the way through. Once the kernels are cut from the cob, scrape the corn with the back of the knife to get all of the "milk" and pulp. 
Melt the butter in a large skillet / pan over medium heat. Add the corn and juices, the water and sugar. Cook, stirring, until the corn is tender and the water evaporates. Stir in flour and saute for a minute or two then add the 2 tablespoons water, blending well so that no lumps are formed. 

Gradually add the milk, stirring constantly till a smooth mixture is formed . Cook for about 2 to 3 minutes. Once your homemade creamed corn is thickened, you can season it with salt and pepper, and it's ready to serve!
Cool and store in a airtight container in the freezer.  
Your  homemade cream style corn is ready to use.  

My Notes :

If you want to make it more richer then add one cup of heavy cream. Cook this for about 5 minutes more or until it's how thick you would like it.

Vegan Whole Wheat Crackers#BreadBakers

In bread bakers this month our host Sue Lau, asked us to bake "Crackers".  Thank you Sue for hosting this month's event. 

If you are vegan then these cracker's are excellent for you to snack on. They have a hint of saltiness and are crisp. You do not require any dip or any accompaniment to snack these. They are so addictive that you will not be able to stop eating.
Made these for my vegan guest and they enjoyed snacking on them as they were busy chatting with each other. They didn't realize that they had nearly finished them. Got few to enjoy for myself. 

1 ½ Cups Whole Wheat Flour
1 ½ Cups All Purpose Flour
1 Teaspoon Salt
1/3 Cup Oil
1 +1/3  Cup Water
Fine Sea Salt for sprinkling


In a  bowl, stir together the both the  flours and 3/4 teaspoon salt. Pour in the oil and water; mix until just blended and forms a soft dough. Wrap this dough in a cling film and keep it in the refrigerator to rest for an hour at least.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough as thin as possible - no thicker than 1/8 inch. 

Place dough on an greased baking sheet. 
Mark squares out with a knife, but don't cut through. 
Prick each cracker with a fork a few times, brush it water and then sprinkle salt. Keep it t again in the refrigerator to cool, for 15 to 20 minutes at least then only take the tray out to bake. These will turn nice and crisp when baked.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until crisp and light brown. When cool, remove from baking sheet and separate into individual crackers.
Enjoy these addictive vegan crackers.
These low in calorie and healthy too.
