Pan de Elote (Corn Bread)

I never liked corn bread until I tried this corn bread in Mexico! My boyfriend’s sister taught me how to make it and ever since then I have loved corn bread. This corn bread is more like dessert and it is very moist. This corn bread needs white corn for it to taste right. It can be hard to find and it is not the same as sweet corn.
