One of the main features of pan de elote is its different textures and flavors. As it bakes, the corn rises to the top and the cheese settles to the bottom, creating a delicious sweet and savory dessert.
During my last trip to Mexico in 2011, one of the foods I really wanted to try was pan de elote. This sweeter version of cornbread is a cross between warm bread pudding and custard. Made with a few simple ingredients, it's a classic, and delicious, Mexican dessert.
Since I was visiting during the month of December, I now associate this cake with the holidays. I really enjoy dessert recipes that can all be added to the blender and be pretty much done. This is a dessert recipe that I will prepare often!
