DIRECTIONS

  • In a small bowl, mix the margarine, masa and sugar with mixer until light and fluffy, about 1 minute.
  • Blend 1/2 the corn kernels with the water in a blender until smooth.
  • Combine with margarine mixture, stirring well.
  • Add the remaining corn, cornmeal, baking powder, salt and milk.
  • Bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil.
  • Pour the mixture into an 8-inch baking dish.
  • Tightly cover with plastic wrap and set atop the saucepan of boiling water.
  • Keep pan tightly wrapped and steam for 50 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Check water level often, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • I have also made this in the oven, setting the pan in a water bath.
  • I do not know the temp I had the oven on, or how long I kept it inches If anyone tries it, please add that info.
