Author Notes: This recipe has been in my repertoire for a long time. I like it because it comes out puffed and golden brown, and looks like a soufflé (but is much easier to prepare.) - Kukla

Food52 Review: This corn pudding was sublime. It came together easily. I used 5 large eggs because I didn't have extra-large. I did not use cream of tartar to beat the egg whites--I used the salt in the recipe instead. (If you add salt before you start, the egg whites beat up very quickly and you don't get that nasty cream of tartar taste.) I was concerned that it would need more sweetness or some kind of spice, but it was really excellent just the way I made it. (It took about 45 minutes in my fairly slow oven.) One request to Sally--she needs to add the lemon zest to the instructions--I was following the instructions carefully and forgot to add the lemon zest, which I'm sure would have made it even better. No matter, this is an amazing corn pudding, and I highly recommend it as an editors' pick. - drbabsdrbabs

Made this tonight -- delicious! Looking forward to trying the version with pumpkin (but will use butternut squash, as that's what I have on hand). ;o)

Dear AntoniaJames, thank you for letting me know your opinion about the Malay!
I hope you will like the other one as well, and I am sure, butternut squash will taste even better then pumpkin. It is always a pleasure to know that talented and creative cooks like you, are trying my recipes!
