"I've made this corn cake many times and I absolutely love it. It is especially delicious on top of chilli. I always double the recipe becuase it goes FAST. I've made some changes that make it even yum..." See moremier and easier to prepare. I can't find masa harina so I always use all-purpose flour. Instead of water I use one 8.5 ounce can creamed corn. I don't bother processing the thawed corn -- it's perfect just thrown in. Also, I mix everything in one bowl -- much less mess and it turns out just as delicious."
"This turned out great with a few modifications...mostly to make it healthier. I used 1/4 c of butter (recipe calls for 1/2 c) and that was plenty. Instead of 1/3 c of sugar I used 1/4 c Splenda, per..." See morefectly sweet enough. I used 1/3 c all-purpose flour plus 1 T cornmeal in substitution of 1/3 c masa harina. I used canned corn, which I did pulse in the blender with a little cream, though I don't think that is necessary if you don't want to do so. I would have used creamed corn but I didn't have any. I baked it in an 11X7 b/c I thought that fit into the 13X9 water bath easier. Turned out just the restaurant...probably healthier though. Will make again, probably double the recipe though so the pieces are thicker."
"I used less butter and just ground up some corn meal for the masa harina, and it turned out great. It was meant to be for dessert, but my gang didn't want to wait! We'll definitely be makign this ag..." See moreain. Note: Make sure to read all the directions before you start - I made the mistake of putting the mixture into a pan that would not fit into any of my other baking dishes, so I had to move it to a smaller one!"
