There are just some things in life that should be homemade. And creamed corn is one of those things. The canned stuff just doesn’t cut it – tasteless, smushy, and a funky texture (not that there’s anything wrong with that…lol!).

But I get it – sometimes you really want creamed corn and the canned stuff is the only choice. Not any more thanks to the thanks to the Instant Pot!

This Instant Pot fresh creamed corn only takes minutes to make and is loaded with sweet, tender, and a little crisp fresh summertime corn. There’s nothing like it!

Yes, it’s true… there’s also butter, cream, and cream cheese, so it’s not like this ought to be on your “diet list.” But it should definitely be on your “recipes I MUST make this summer” list. Definitely. (And make sure to serve it alongside these amazing Instant Pot Ribs!)

Instant Pot Creamed Corn Cutting Corn

Let’s talk about the fresh corn for a minute – yes, that you could use canned corn in this recipe but it’s WAY better with corn cut fresh from the cob. Just peel off the husks, give it a good wash, then cut vertically from top to bottom. And that’s all there is to it to get that truly fresh summer corn taste. Well worth it! Now, let’s get to the rest…

How to make Instant Pot Fresh Creamed Corn

Cut the kernels off 4 ears of fresh corn and put them into the Instant Pot. Add some butter, cream cheese, sugar, salt, pepper, milk, and cream. Stir it all up then secure the lid (make sure you turn the valve toward sealing). Set the timer to 4 minutes (can do 3 for crunchier or 5 for softer). Let the pot do its magic and when the timer counts down, turn the valve to venting. Take off the lid and give it a good stir. Yum Yum!

Finished Instant Pot Creamed Corn edited

Now before you all get on me about "you can't pressure cook dairy," just know that I have tested this recipe many (many!) times and it has always worked. My family loves it. I love it.

And I'm guessing you will too! Don't worry about the ever-present Instant Pot myth that you can't pressure cook dairy. That's simply not true. It just depends on the recipe and this one is awesome!

So get yourself some fresh summertime corn, load up on yumminess in the dairy aisle, grab your pot (the appliance kind...), and make some magic - Instant Pot Fresh Creamed Corn. This one is worth every single hip-sticking calorie!

How much corn does this equate to in cups? Can I triple this recipe for a potluck?


Friday 24th of May 2019

Hi Kristy. This is probably about 4 cups of corn. And I would say you can double it very easily without trouble. Tripling it might be too much, but just look in your pot. If it is up past the 2/3 full line, then it's too much. Otherwise you should be fine!
