Pan de Elote- Mexican Sweet Corn Cake
Pan de Elote is similar to the Southwestern treat, Cornbread, but it is much sweeter and is usually served alone as a dessert; however, there are those here in Mexico that prefer to serve this delicious sweet treat topped with Mexican Creama and strips of Chile Poblano.  Whip up a delicious Pan de Elote to serve to dinner guests along with a hot steaming cup of coffee!

Pan de Elote

4 eggs, yolks and egg whites separated
½ cup all purpose flour
1 stick of butter - 1/2 cup
¾ cup sugar
1 tsp. of baking powder
5 cups of corn kernels

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease and lightly flour a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan (or two 9 x 1 1/2-inch roundpans). Set aside.

Place corn in your blender and mix until you have a creamy chunky texture.

In a mixing bowl cream the butter using and electric hand mixer. Add sugar, egg yolks and continuing beating. Then mix into the corn mixture the baking powder and flour.

In a separate bowl, using a hand mixer, whip the egg whites until glossy and firm. Add 1/4 of the egg whites mixture to the corn batter. Continue to add the whites by thirds, folding very gently.

Pour the mixture into the prepared baking pan.

Bake in the oven for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted near center of cake comes out clean, or until cake springs back when touched lightly in the center.
It will have a nice golden color when done.

Buen Provecho!
