Maque choux is a traditional Cajun dish consisting of sauteed corn, onions, and peppers. We have turned the mixture into a rich and dense savory pudding.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter six 8-ounce ramekins; dust with bread crumbs; set aside. In a bowl, combine corn, onion, pepper, tomato, eggs, and cheese. In a second bowl, mix flour, cornmeal, sugar, salt, pepper, and cayenne. Add to egg mixture; combine. Stir in cream and butter. Pour into ramekins. Place in a baking pan; add water halfway up ramekins. Bake until golden brown and a cake tester inserted in center comes out clean, 40 to 50 minutes. Cool slightly; serve in ramekins or unmold.
