Update: Tamale Griddle Cakes

If you love tamales but don't have the time and patience to make actual tamales, these griddle cakes are a pretty yummy subsitute! These griddle cakes taste a lot like tamales and can be topped with whatever you like! I had some leftover crock pot pulled pork and it was great on top! I also added some shredded lettuce, sour cream and Sandy's Famous Salsa (cowboy caviar). My girls also loved them with cheese on top! I love this kind of recipe because you can let your kids help build their own and that always seems to motivate them to eat more!

These are a copycat of a favorite appetizer at The Cheesecake Factory. I've made several changes and tweaked it over the years but I found the orignal recipe on Prudence Pennywise so if you like this recipe you might want to check out her blog too. Here's a link to her griddle cake recipe:


Tamale Griddle Cakes (makes 12 silver dollar sized patties) 
1 can creamed corn
1/4 cup butter, softened
3 Tbls. sugar 
pinch of salt 
1 heaping 1/2 cup scoop of masa harina 
1/4 cup flour 
1/2 cup to 3/4 cup vegetable or chicken broth 

In a medium bowl, combine creamed corn, butter, sugar, salt, masa and flour.  Slowly add 1/2 cup of the broth while mixing constantly. Add more broth as needed to completely moisten batter. The batter will remain somewhat thick however. Shape into 12 small patties. Cook on a non-stick griddle like pancakes, allowing tamale cakes to brown on both sides. I also used the spatula to flatten them a bit which helped them cook. Top with your favorite toppings! Pork, chicken, cheese, sour cream, salsa, avacado, etc!
