    Ohhhh, Felix, thanks for sharing this recipe. I am definitely going to try this. I love that this pie is firm, now I know that it is from the cornmeal. I have everything but the can of corn if not I’d make it today…

    This is fast becoming a favourite of mine. I love its simplicity and also how quickly it can be made. Thank you Cynthia for stopping by. :-)

    Back when I worked in a Ministry in Trinidad, there was a particular caterer we used for small events – and around Christmas time, she always had this fantastic corn pie! Was one of my favourites!

    We made this a month ago, substituting canned corn for fresh boiled one and adding some extra zucchini, which needed to be used.
    It was delicious!
    I love your blog and am eager to try lots of other recipes from it.

    Cheers.

    Felix I will say I shared the same expression (why would my aunt feed me coocoo) cause I dont eat coocoo, but when I ate that pie It was so Damn GOOD I begged for the recipe and I wasn’t given it, so thanks for sharing it here.

    Try this with Jiffy Corn Muffin mix and a tin of cream style corn to the mixture… it is de best… you could also vary it by adding sugar for a sweet flavour (a Dessert dish)

    You can also add tuna or salmon to the mixture to get a tuna/salmon corn casserole…

    It’s Thanksgiving and I tried it as a side using canned sweet corn and coconut milk (since my guests are lactose intolerant) – delicious! Thanks so much Felix.

    The first corn pie I ever made was using this recipe, after a google search of ‘recipe for corn pie’ lol..N.B. I wowed my mom and at the time i was only 19 with no interest in cooking. This simple and precise recipe not only made the corn pie tasty, but gave it that special trini flavor!! Thanks Felix =)

    I came across this recipe from a link at Breakfast,Lunch,Dinner and Punch and gave it a try tonight. It turned out great! Very tasty. I dug in straight from the oven so it was little bit mushy but I’m guessing it will firm up after I let it stand for a bit. Will definitely be adding this to my repertoire.

    Thank you for stopping by Candi and trying out the corn pie recipe. I saw Wizzy’s version when I passed the other day. it was a nice twist with the chilli…. So you couldn’t wait for it to cool eh? Hope you didn’t scald your tongue lol! Visit again soon :-)

    WOW, WOW, WOW… no kidding, learn to cook grits and you can hit it home with this. This was incredible. Albeit, cook it slow is key. COCO is called corn? Sorry, I live in a fertilly rich area in Lancaster Co, PA. NO ONE CAN WAIT HERE FOR FRESH CORN SEASON! Ooooh, boil it and eat straight from the cob. Your version of this is incredible. Even our locals “Amish” could not top this. Way yummmmy. BUT I did add that all too much of a favorite to this, just seems to go hand in hand, Some BACON!!!!! Browned crisp and papertoweled to degrease. AHHHHHH, heaven in every bite!!!!

    can I use cream style corn instead of whole kernel corn?

  18. Felix
    June 30, 2012 • 12:43 am

    I guess you can use cream style corn but seeing that this is a very accurate recipe already, you may not get the same taste this dish is famous for.

    Hi Felix,

    I am going to try this recipe for a wedding on Saturday. By how much should i increase the recipe by to get about 2 large foil pan of corn pie?

    Thanks

      What are the dimensions of the pan you’re going to use?

  20. Susan

    Approximately 10 inches x 18 inches

    Thank you

    Hi Felix, I just discovered this site cuz I was looking for an oxtail recipe. I’ve NEVER commented before but I felt compelled to do it this time. Thank you for making all your recipes sooooooo simple and the ingredients are so easy to find, but I think I enjoy reading your intros at the beginning of each recipe the most. Thanks again

    hi
    i was just wondering is there a substitute i can use for the eggs, my husband does not eat eggs and i would love to try this recipe.

    • Felix
      May 19, 2013 • 7:27 am

      To substitute 1 egg, simmer 1 tbsp ground flaxseed in 3 tbsp of water until it is slightly thickened. Then cool to room temperature before you use it.

    can this be made with cheese in it?

    • Felix
      August 2, 2013 • 9:56 pm

      I prefer to add the cheese as a topping.

    I like this recipe.
    So where’s the cheese?
    R U Felix Padilla?? I found a recipe with cheese here

    • Felix
      January 21, 2014 • 11:36 pm

      I’m happy you liked the recipe Java. Yes I am Felix Padilla in the flesh. The cheese was just a variation my friend Cynthia did, but the original recipe I did does not call for cheese since it increases the calories of the dish. Adding the cheese is optional.

        Awesome!

        (Gonna comment on another one of your recipes).

    One of the best things about Corn Pie is the many variations. I made this today and it is very delicious. Definitely another one of the more tasty versions both in flavor and texture. To me, no Corn Pie would be complete without the added flavor of peppers and the firm yet moist texture from the cornmeal makes this Corn Pie recipe one I’ll make again!

    Hi good day felix. Can this be made without Eggs. Don’t like eggs in pie so could you tell me of a replacement or if it could be done without it. Thank you…

    • Felix
      May 8, 2014 • 9:38 pm

      Yes, I believe you can leave the eggs out, you can use ground flaxseed. Simmer about 1 tablespoon in 3 tablespoon of warm water until it is slightly thickened. Cool and use in the recipe.

    • Felix
      August 13, 2014 • 10:27 am

      I never said it was published in the Recipe book. I got the recipe and kept in the book for safekeeping. And it is still there. :)

    I find all corn dishes are really all the same…i make a corn pudding with frozen corn I put all sort of veggies in,,and when its baked,,,with a lovely golden top,,,it looks the same as your corn-pie when its sliced………qqq
