4 medium free range eggs (separate yolks from whites)
113g slightly salted butter

1 tsp baking powder
1/4 - 1/2 tsp salt
Pastel de Elote (Fresh Corn Cake)
Makes 12 portions.
Over 60 minutes
The time to make this cake is when corn season is with us and corn is plentiful and fresh in its husks. It is a cake that can go three ways, as a pudding with a dusting of powdered sugar and berries or savoury with 'rajas con crema' which is a most delicious combination, but it is also very nice as it is as with a cup of coffee.
No waste tip: save the fresh corn husks to make tamales or use them to wrap fish with for the barbecue.
Delivery to France/ Denmark/ Netherlands is now available through the website. We will be using FedEx and costs have increased slightly, along with delivery times. It is possible you will also receive a duty and tax invoice from customs, we are yet to find an exact science to this but so far a few of our customers have been receiving charges that almost double their order. We will be experimenting week by week with other countries in Europe. If you wish to place an order to Europe please contact us directly and we can arrange.
Deliveries to Italy we can't facilitate currently. We have experienced many product restrictions and hefty government charges.
Business as usual! Click and collect still available!
