Sweet Mexican Corn Cake Recipe

My family loves Mexican recipes. We eat Mexican recipes at least once a week or every other week. One of our favorites is sweet mexican fresh corn cake which always brings back memories from one of our favorite college mexican restaurants. Now that it is spring we will be enjoying even more corn recipes like this one.

Corn is a common ingredient in a lot of our mexican recipes. As soon as my local store has fresh corn in the spring, I buy it! Nothing taste as good as fresh corn on the cob.  I shave it off most of the time and use it in most all of my recipes needing corn as long as it is available. I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Sunshine Sweet Corn. I received a gift card to purchase a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

When my girls were little, they use to love corn right on the cob. It seems these days that I'm always removing it off of the cob for everyone but my husband. He prefers it fresh on the cob. Right now I can only get corn prepacked like this. How about you?

During the summer our local store lets you shuck the corn before bringing it home. I don't do that because sometimes I grill it before shucking. I also LOVE handing a bag of  corn on the cob to my daughters and they sit outside and shuck the corn. They have been doing this since they were 3 years old!
