Sweet Corn Tamale Cakes the Cheesecake Factory

Sweet Corn Tamale Cakes the Cheesecake Factory created by Ashley Cuoco

I am so glad everyone loves these as much as I do! I have made a few changes to clarify how to prepare them to look like the cheesecake factory, but as everyone has found out, being pretty doesn't effect the taste! Thank you again everyone!! I know this seems like a really hard recipe but it really isnt, alot of the ingriedients are used more than once. I usually make it by hand without a blender, and I consider it a just cause, a blender would make it even more of a snap! This is a copycat of The Cheesecake factory appetizer which is heavenly! I put 4 servings, its enough calories to feed 8 but really only enough to share greedily with 2. LOL

    Whenever I go to Cheesecake Factory it is only for the corn tamales so you can imagine how happy I was to find this recipe. I started cooking and trying recipe ideas for the past 3 years and felt confident enough to try this one and oh what a surprise I'm in love. The only issue I had was that it was not enough flour and corn flour. I'm a small corn cakes and I love all three of the sources I just want to make my sauce a little spicier. So sue me for wanting more heat. All in all this recipe is dead on and now I look forward to gaining 25 more pounds thank you to The Recipe Maker for making America fat again. LOL great job!

    I have never had these at Cheescake Factory, but think they would also be awesome topped with pulled pork or chorizo and manchego cheese and that would solve the problem with keeping them hot and putting cold sauces on them.

    This doesn't look like it would make more than 3 cakes, but says it serves 4. Am I missing something? They sound delicious, but I would like to know before I try them. Should I double the recipe?

    I'd prefer more flavorful patty..like the herbs and spices IN the patty. i'm from New Mexico and Arizona and I know true Hispanic fare...
