Pureeing a portion of the corn kernels in the food processor until they are smooth. You can use fresh or frozen corn in this recipe, depending on availability.

  • Pulse 1 cup of the corn kernels in a food processor until smooth, about 5 times, and set aside. Whisk eggs by hand in a large bowl until smooth and lightly beaten. Stir in flour mixture and milk until combined. Whisk in melted butter. Add corn puree, parsley, 1 tablespoon of the scallions, and remaining 2 cups corn kernels. Stir to combine well.

  • Transfer corn mixture to prepared baking dish. Bake in preheated oven until lightly browned, puffed up all over, and fairly firm, about 40 minutes. Sprinkle corn pudding with remaining 1/2 tablespoon scallions. Serve hot or warm.
