Brazilian Corn Pudding - Curau

Marian Blazes
This corn pudding is traditionally served during June Festival in Brazil. It's a sweet pudding made from corn, milk, and sugar, sprinkled with cinnamon, and served cold.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes


  • 6 ears of fresh corn
  • 3 cups of milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • cinnamon


  1. Scrape the kernels off of the ears of corn.

  2. Place the corn in a blender (or food processor) with the milk, and blend well, for at least 3 minutes.

  3. Strain the corn/milk mixture through a fine mesh sieve into a pot. Discard the fibrous parts of the kernels that remain in the sieve.

  4. Add the sugar, a pinch of salt, and the butter to the pot, and bring mixture to a simmer.

  5. Cook, stirring continuously, until the mixture becomes thick and creamy, about 15 minutes. If it's thick enough, you should be able to drag a wooden spoon across the bottom of the pot and see the bottom for several seconds before the mixture closes in on itself.

  6. Remove from heat and let cool. Pour pudding into a serving dish. Sprinkle with cinnamon.

  7. Chill thoroughly, and serve cold.
