I used Jiffy corn mix, added 1/4 cup honey and it was great. For those who said it was too moist, this is corncake it is supposed to be moist. Otherwise it would be cornbread.
My daughter was dying for me to make this for her, and she was so disappointed. She expected it to taste exactally like El Torito and it was close but no cigar. Back to the drawing board!
My daughter is in Sweet Corn Cake Heaven! Hubby didn't really care for the texture, but my daughter thinks that just means more for her. lol She loves this stuff! My friend from California sent me the El Torito Mix a few times and she fell in love. Now I can make it for her more often!
I absolutely love this recipe... it tastes exactly like the sweet corn cake at Don Pablo's. The only modification I made to this recipe was that I added a little bit of sugar to the cornbread mixture. This is guaranteed to be a hit at any family gathering! Side note: I don't care for creamed corn, but I love this recipe... so don't let that stop you from making this! :-)
I thought this was plenty sweet! Maybe people aren't using the right cornbread mix. I used Marie Callender's and it was fab. Just like El Torito. Thank you very much!
Delish folloewd it to the letter except I didnt have a loaf pan so I put it in my muffin pan and that was a great idea it gave it strudy enough edges to hold all the good gooey corn goodness inside as I could easily remove and serve them with my fingers. Will add honey or something to make it a tad bit sweeter. Great with spicy food. We had enchiladas black beans and rice.
I was just at el torito and I asked them they said it is made with cornbread mix, heavy cream, butter, corn
I tweaked this by adding 1/4 c. Sugar, 1/4 c. Cornmeal and about 2 T. Very finely chopped onion. I baked it for 50 minutes, the stirred it and baked for another 7 minutes because it was still too "wet". It trned out amazing and I am gong to make it again often.
I made this for my family on Thanksgiving and we loved it. . Add a lil butter on top!! Yummy :)) I will be making this again soon.. already bought the ingredients.
I would have given this recipe 5 stars if you could actually find the Sweet Corn Bread Mix. The small boxes at grocery stores do not contain much sugar. Add 1/4 cup of agave nectar, honey, sugar or other sweetener of choice. This recipe is a 5-star with the right amount of sugar.
