Supper Club: Cinnamon Corn

This month's Supper Club theme was Spice Grab Bag. During one of our past events, we all picked a spice and wrote the name down on a piece of paper. We tossed them in a bag and we all grabbed one, and that had to be the featured flavor in the dish for this month. I drew cinnamon, and I was going to make a dessert, but Dino had nutmeg, and he couldn't find something non-desserty to make that really featured nutmeg. So I found this corn dish and thought it sounded interesting. It sounded kind of like a cinnamon spiced creamed corn to me. I used a stick of butter instead of margarine. It was super simple to put together, but it took me 1 1/2 hours to get it to cook all the way, which I was not planning on. Luckily, even though it doesn't look too great, it tastes wonderful! It's like a really sweet creamed corn pudding. I was calling it "corn brulée". It was one of those recipes that's just weird enough to be a hit. I think this could be served as a dessert, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. And you could definitely cut back on the amount of sugar in the recipe and still have it be plenty sweet. Yum. I meant to get a photo of it after we dug in to show off the creamy texture, but I forgot. Oops!
