How to make it

  • In a small mixing bowl, mix the butter, masa, and sugar using an electirc mixer until light and fluffy. About 1 minute.
  • In a blender, blend half of the corn kernels with the water until smooth.
  • Combine this mixture with the butter mixture, stirring well.
  • Add the remaining corn kerrnels, corn meal, baking powder, salt and milk and mix well.
  • Pour the corn mixture into an 8 inch square baking pan. tightly cover with foil. Steam by setting atop a medium sauce pan of water on top of the stove. * see note... Bring water to a boil and steam corn mixture for 50 minutes to one hour. Keep an eye on the water, you may need to add more.
  • It is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Tomalito should have a smooth, moist texture.
  • Note: the pan must be tightly wrapped at all times.
  • I've made this in a double boiler too.
  • * Note: I received the Chevy's cookbook for a birthday present this year and I looked up their recipe in the Official Cookbook. While the ingredients are the same as this, the mesurements are quite different. However the book offers a different and dare I say better cooking method. Here it is:
  • Preheat oven 250 degree F. Place covered dish in a larger roasting pan filled with so water is 3/4 of inch up side of baking dish. Bake for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

    I made it and it was amazing! Next time I will use less of the whole kernels-the unblended ones. For me, it was good, but I'd prefer it with less!
