1/2 cup butter or margarine -- softened
1/3 cup masa harina (a type of corn flour
available in specialty food stores
and many supermarkets)
1/4 cup water
1 package frozen corn - (10 oz) -- thawed
1/3 cup sugar
3 tablespoons yellow cornmeal
2 tablespoons whipping cream
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Sliced chili peppers
Chopped parsley

With an electric mixer, beat butter or margarine until fluffy. Gradually
beat in masa harina. On low speed, beat in water.

Place corn in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until chopped coarse.
Stir in masa mixture.

In a small bowl, stir together sugar, cornmeal, cream, baking powder, and
salt. Stir into corn mixture. Spread in a greased, 8-inch-square baking
pan. Cover with foil. Place in a larger pan and pour boiling water half
way up the side of the smaller pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or
until set.

Remove smaller pan from water, uncover, and let stand 15 minutes.
Sprinkle with chilies and parsley, if desired.
