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
Food52 Review: I really liked this. It's just sweet and salty enough to be interesting, and super easy to make. —Stephanie Bourgeois
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 40 min
cups fresh corn kernels
14oz can sweetened condensed milk
teaspoons baking powder
tablespoons all purpose flour
teaspoon vanilla extract
tablespoons unsalted, room temperature butter
- Preheat the oven to 350° F.
- Beat the eggs in a small, separate bowl.
- 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.
- 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.
- In a buttered 9x13 pan, pour the mixture and bake in the oven about 40 minutes, or until golden brown.
