sweet corn tamales with nutella®
All year round
Yields: 14 each
Portion: 1 tamale
- Corn husks
(approx. 28 or enough to wrap tamales.
May have to double-wrap to place on bottom of steam pan)
- 1 cup corn puree
- 1 ¾ cup masa harina
- 1 cup hot water
- 4 oz. butter, softened
- 2 tbsp. sugar
- ½ tsp. salt
- 1½ tsp. baking powder
- 7 oz. Nutella®
- 2 cups mango diced small
- 1 tbsp. sugar
For the tamale batter, in a mixer with a paddle, add corn puree, masa harina, hot water, butter, sugar, salt and baking powder.
Mix for one minute on low speed.
Scrape bowl down and mix for additional minute.
Place 3 tbsp. of batter into a corn husk and wrap, folding bottom to seal, but leaving top open. Place extra husks in a steam pan to protect tamales, and steam for about an hour. Batter should pull freely away from the husk.
Drizzle with ¼ oz. of Nutella® per tamale and serve with a mango salsa on the side.
Mix diced fruit, sugar together and hold refrigerated until needed.
