Author Notes: Mexican corn bread is very different from your typical American corn bread. It's a wet mixture that has very little flour and instead of sugar- sweetened condensed milk. I believe anything that calls for a can of sweetened condensed milk MUST be good. I first tried this bread on one of my first trips to Monterrey, Mexico. It was at a roadside stand and they were selling sheets of the stuff for practically nothing. Hope you enjoy this bread this summer as corn is at its peak!"mpittsm

Serves 8

  • 3 cups fresh corn kernels
  • 1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 6 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted, room temperature butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Beat the eggs in a small, separate bowl.
  3. In a blender or food processor, add the corn kernels, milk, butter and vanilla extract. Puree until mostly smooth- if you like the presentation of whole kernels, set aside about ¼ cup of whole kernels and stir them in at the end.
  4. Once the mixture is mostly smooth, add the eggs and pulse about 5 times. Then, add the rest of the ingredients and puree until everything is well incorporated.
  5. In a buttered 9x13 pan, pour the mixture and bake in the oven about 40 minutes- or until golden brown.

Wondering if you could sub thawed frozen corn kernels? Fresh corn is unfortunately months away in New England....

Yes you can! IDK if you have a Trader Joes in your area, but they have a frozen super sweet cut white corn that I like to use, if not any frozen corn will do ...defrost it first.
