Pan de Elote/ Mexican Corn Cake

Jump to recipe

Pan de Elote is a cake made with fresh corn, eggs, flour and condensed milk. It is very moist and mildly sweet with an intense corn flavor. This was my favorite treat when I was a kid. My dad would often take us to “La Carretera” on Sunday -a big road along side the mountains with a ton of restaurants, shops and farmers market- We would buy this cake fresh right out of the brick oven and it was just glorious; but you know me, I like being extra. I made a caramel sauce to drizzle all over the cake to give it another layer of flavor and sweetness.

I love how great this cake turned out! I think it is very, very close to the one I used to have when I was a kid. The only thing that would make it better is eating by the mountains with the fam. Hopefully we get to do it in the near future but for now, let me go grab another slice.

Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
