Mexican Corn Cake

Mexican Corn Cake 1 (1)

If you’ve ever been to El Torito, especially El Torito Grill, you’ve had this beautifully sweet and savory corn cake.  Speaking for myself (and countless others, I would guess), I could eat this and forego dinner, but I would have cream corn oozing from my eye sockets by the end of the night for sure.

Mexican Corn Cake is totally easy to make and it has a lot of variations.  I found the basis for the recipe below online, for example, and I found many like it just a tad different, like mine will be.  Jiffy Cornbread Mix can be bought in a six pack for next to nothing, but any cornbread mix, I would guess, would work, as would the recipe for cornbread on the side of a corn meal can, sans the liquids.

Mexican Corn Cake

(Serves 2 if you’re greedy, or 5 to 6 if you actually have class)


1 7 to 9 oz. package of cornbread mix

1/3 cup butter, melted

1/4 water

1 15 oz. can creamed corn

Makin’ It:

Preheat the oven to 350°.  Combine the cornbread mix and the melted butter.  Add the water and the creamed corn and mix it well.  Pour this in a 1 quart loaf pan (just the standard one, wise guy).

Bake it for 45 minutes and a toothpick will come out clean.  You want it to be juicy.

To serve, use an ice cream scoop.

Note:  If you want to add a small can of diced green chilies to this, it will work too.  Like I said, there are multitudinous variations.

Until later, eat, drink, and peace out.

    I’ve been so tempted to do that, order just the corn cake and nothing else! I figured it wouldn’t be the healthiest thing, but still… It’s so good!

      Word. It’s like a dessert WITH dinner. I’m with you, sister.

        I hadn’t quite thought of it as dessert with dinner, but that makes complete sense! No wonder I love it so much… I think dessert is the most important meal of the day!
