Chris' Story

Love that sweet corn cake that your favorite Mexican restaurant serves? Than why not make it at home...so easy and SO good. I like to serve it with a spicy dinner...although I am told it is served as a dessert as well.

Ingredients

1/2 c
butter, softened
1/3 c
masa harina(corn flour)
1/4 c
water
1 1/2 c
whole kernel corn( i use fresh or thawed frozen but i am sure canned will be ok too)
1/4 c
corn meal
1/3 c
sugar
2 Tbsp
heavy cream
1/2 tsp
baking powder
1/4 tsp
salt

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350*
2
In a blender or food processor give corn a whirl to chop it up a bit but still leave it somewhat chunky.
3
Beat butter in medium bowl until creamy. Add masa harina and water and beat until mixed well.
4
Stir the blended corn into the butter mixture.
5
In a seperate bowl combine corn meal,sugar,heavy cream,baking powder and salt.
6
Add that to the butter/corn mixture and stir until combined well.
7
Spread into 8x8 square pan and cover with foil. Put the 8x8 pan into a 9x13 pan and add water to about 1/3 of the way up the 8x8 pan. Bake for 50-60 minutes. Cool for about 10 minutes and serve by scooping it out either with a spoon or ice cream scoop.

I tried this recipe and it is great! It is easy to make and the kids loved it. I didn't puree the corn because I like the texture the kernels add to the dish. This would be great for breakfast as well drizzled with maple syrup -- much like fired corn pones.

Karen asked, "What is the difference between masa harina and corn meal?" Masa Harina is corn flour and like wheat flour in consistency. The instant variety is used for making torillas, tamale dough, sopas, empanadas and more. Corn meal is course ground corn and is typically mixed with flour to make breadings for frying fish, pickles and chicken, used in cornbread to add texture, or is cooked by itself to make grits or polenta depending on where you are from.
