Cooking with Kimme: Sweet Corn Cakes

These Sweet Corn Cakes are just in time for summer! They are slightly sweet, yet savory enough to hold their own as a fun side dish for any meal.

4 cups frozen corn, thawed (can use large, fresh kernels if desired – drain on paper towels before incorporating)
1/3 cup butter, softened
½ cup sugar
¾ cup milk
½ cup masa harina (corn flour used to make tortillas – found in Mexican dry section)
½ cup cornmeal
½ teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Using a hand mixer, cream butter and sugar together.  Add milk and masa harina (corn flour) until combined.
Using a blender/processor/Ninja, puree only2 cups of the corn.  Add pureed corn to the previous mixture.  Add remaining 2 cups whole corn, cornmeal, baking powder and salt.  Mix until combined.
Pour mixture into an ungreased 8×8 square pan.  Cover with foil.  Now, place this pan into a 9×13 pan.  Get situated in the oven, then add a water to the larger 9×13 pan until it is about 1/3 full.
Bake for 1.5 hours, or until corn cake is firm in the center – if the center isn’t firming after 1.5 hours, take the foil off until firm.
Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.  Using a spoon, shape into balls for plating.

Kimme continues to write recipes for print and blog for Invitation Magazines (Oxford/Tupelo/MSU/Family). Her latest role as the Culinary Arts Coordinator at The Mary C.
