  • I bought 8 ears of corn and cut the corn off. It was about 6 cups.
  • If you’re going to use canned corn, make sure you drain the water. 
  • The 9×13 pan worked well. If you decide to use a smaller pan, it will make the pieces much thicker. It also may alter the baking time. 
  • The longer you blend the wet ingredients, the smoother it will be. The shorter you blend, the more course it will be. It’s preference.
