Mexican Sweet Corn Cake

Mexican Sweet Corn Cake...a nice Mexican dessert recipe to try !

  • 1/3 cup Mexican corn flour
  • ½ cup softened butter
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ cup cornmeal
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1½ cups thawed whole-kernel corn
  • 1/3 cup white sugar


Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Beat the butter in a bowl until it is creamy, then add the corn flour and water. Mix it all together well. Process the corn in a food processor but leave it chunky. Stir this into the butter mixture. In another bowl, mix the sugar, cream, cornmeal, salt and baking powder. Add this to the corn flour mixture and stir well.
Pour this batter into an un-greased 8 inch baking pan. Smooth it down and cover the pan with tinfoil. Place the pan in a 9 by 13 inch dish which is one third filled with water. Bake for 50 minutes to an hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes. You can use an ice cream scoop to remove chunks from the pan or cut it into squares. Serve this as a side dish with your favorite Mexican recipe. Or if you want to Americanize it why not pour over maple syrup! The Mexican dessert recipe is ready to serve ! Great taste ! Enjoy !

I think this is a best dessert for celebrating my successful nose job! Thanks to my rhinoplasty surgeon, Los Angeles-based. He really did a great job for my nose! I'm so excited to cook this recipe.
