Sweet Corn Tamale Cake - copycat Recipe of Cheesecake Factory

These big food chain , tries to attract more customers but we only have time to go out in weekends because weekdays are busy and those eateries are so packed on weekends that we have to wait so long that we get cranky by the time we sit on the table and after sitting also , servers serve food fast so they can take more people. So basically its not fun experience to eat out, specially after kids. But still craves for those food, so why not make it home, its cheap, healthy and you know what you are putting and how much you want. Before this you have one of my,  other favorite food chain restaurant dish Sweet Corn Cake - Mexican Style, now this is in same direction, but the presentation makes all tasty. I tried to do that way but didn't had salsa Verde so just had it without it. But if you have it, put the cakes on bed of that green sauce.

You will need salsa Verde, Pico de Gallo,  southwestern sauce, sour cream, guacamole and sweet corn cake. I didn't use salsa Verde but you can find my recipe here.

Pico De Gallo:

1 red tomato finely chopped
1 red onion chopped
1/2 finely chopped jalapenos
salt to taste
few strings of chopped cilantro
lime juice to taste

Mix all together and keep it aside.

Southwestern Sauce :

My way of making southwestern sauce is
1/2 cup mayo
1 tsp. paprika or red chili powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. white vinegar
salt to taste

Mix everything with whisk and keep it aside.

Tamale Cake :

1/2 can cream sweet corn
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup AP flour
1/2 finely chopped jalapenos
1 tbsp. garlic powder


You can make this anyway, bake it in the oven, deep fry it, shallow fry it. I baked it.

Preheat the oven at 380 F.
Mix everything in bowl and make a stiff dough.
Grease the baking dish generously.
Take two ice-cream scoops worth mixture in hand and flatten it. Just like we make tikkis.
apply oil on top of it too and put it in the oven for 20 minutes. After first 10 minutes turn over and cook it on other side.
Should be like this once it comes out.

Take a serving platter, spread first salsa Verde, the put the tamale cake, put the dollop of guacamole, and sour cream , and Pico de Gallo, then southwestern sauce. I had this as a side of my fajitas.
