This is that sweet corn pudding-type stuff they serve in Mexican restaurants like Chevy's. Yum! Serve using an ice cream scoop to get a nice round look. Be sure to share even though that will be REALLY hard to do!

If people are complaining about the texture being gritty it is because you cant sub cornmeal, which is very coarse and needs to be cooked in boiling hot liquid to soften as a substitute. You have to use Masa, and i could never imagine favorable results being had, by sticking this in the microwave to bake!

Just like what we find in the restaurants! The family LOVED it! I have a family of six and we ate it all and the kids were asking for more. Next time I'll be doubling the recipe. The only other change I'll be making is adding a tad more butter & cream to the recipe... I'd like it to hold it's shape from the ice cream scoop a little bit better. (It was a bit flaky and fell apart as soon as it was touched... but delicious anyway!)
