- Place corn kernels in blender and blend until coarsely chopped. Stir into masa mixture.
- Place cornmeal, sugar, whipping cream, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl. Mix quickly. Add butter/masa mixture. Mix just until blended.
- Pour into buttered 8-inch square baking pan. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees 40 to 50 minutes or until corn cake has firm texture. Allow to stand at room temperature 15 minutes before cutting. Cut into squares or use a small ice cream scoop to portion servings.
