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.

4Stir the blended corn into the butter mixture.
5In a seperate bowl combine corn meal,sugar,heavy cream,baking powder and salt.
6Add that to the butter/corn mixture and stir until combined well.
