Torta de elote, or sweet corn cake, is a soft bread-type dessert made out of corn that is typically eaten in Central America. It is ideal to eat with a cup of coffee. 


  • 8 grated corn 
  • 1 ½ bar of butter (150 grams)
  • 2 eggs 
  • 1 cup sugar 
  • 1/3 cup milk 
  • 2 tsp baking powder 


Blend all of the ingredients until well mixed. Place mixture in a greased pan. 

Bake at 300 Fahrenheit for 45 minutes. Let cool. 

Optional: serve with whipped cream on top


Give it a twist

Instead of using a single pan, use cupcake molds to make individual servings.
