MEXICAN SWEET CORN CAKE

The first time I tried this side dish (at El Pollo Loco) I loved it so much that I knew I had to try finding the recipe and making it myself. So glad I did!  It’s sweet like a dessert but 2 things I love…CORN & sweetness ♥
This is now going to be a staple in my home.

It’s like sweet corn pudding that is buttery and creamy, that’s awesome with any Mexican meal. Actually, #IMHO, you don’t HAVE to make Mexican food to have it; it’s a GREAT side to any meal.

Mexican Sweet Corn Cake

1 can sweet corn, drain, reserve
1/4 c. juice (can use frozen/FRESH corn w/water)
1 stick butter
1/2 c masa harina
1/4 c whipping cream (or evaporated milk)
4 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp yellow cornmeal
1/2 tsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, mix softened butter and masa harina, until well blended. Add cream (or milk), cornmeal, baking powder, sugar and mix.
In a food processor, pulse corn and reserved juice to break up kernels, leaving it chunky. Add blended corn to flour mixture, mix well. Spread mixture into an 8×8 (or somewhat equal) greased glass pan and cover with foil. Place baking dish inside or a larger dish, with water to halfway up smaller pan.
Bake 35-45 minutes, or until set.
(1 recipe said 25-30 minutes, another said 55-60 minutes; so I went in between. Start checking on it after 30 minutes.)…
I then uncover and bake an additional 6-8 minutes (optional, you can skip this part 😀 ). I tested the doneness like with cake…gently tapping top with finger.
Serves 6-8.

I’m addicted.  I’ll be doubling this recipe. Not that I can handle too much of a rich dish like this. No…it’s so that I’ll have leftovers

Its a beautiful day!

Note: a food processor works better than magic bullet (but if thats all you have, it works).
