It’s so nice to see a Mexican food and culture blog – I love Mexican food. Looking forward to your posts.
Thanks so much, Liuba! How nice! As you can see, I love Mexican food, too. Hope these recipes can be of use to you 🙂
Awesome thanks !!
You’re welcome! Hope you enjoy the recipes! I’d love to hear how they turn out. Thanks for stopping by 😀
Hi, I’m from South Africa and have recently come to enjoy some of the Mexican cuisine. Specifically Nixtamalization. I tried Tamale’s this weekend for the first time and they were great. I could not find Banana leafs or corn husks, so I was really frustrated. It then struck me that Wax Paper could work or maybe those Seaweed sheets that they use with Sushi. I used wax paper and it works great. I must say that you need to opt for a good quality paper and not the cheapest, because they will tear. Added benefit is that you can see through the paper.
Hi Riaan! It’s so nice to see that I have international readers who are interested in Mexican cuisine! Yay! I find nixtamalization fascinating, too! I love to experiment with different methods of cooking the corn and also using different types of corn. I even tried growing/drying my own corn this summer. I’m so excited to hear that you had good luck with tamales this weekend. What kind did you make? It’s such a bummer when you aren’t able to find the right tools/ingredients, but necessity is the mother of invention! Did you notice if the waxed paper left any sort of residue in the tamales? My other suggestions would be using fresh corn husks, large swiss chard leaves, parchment paper, or even aluminum foil. Here are some links to what they would look like.
I love that you are experimenting in the kitchen. Please let me know if you come across any other problems or solutions. Happy cooking!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I don’t have my own personal for pink panadería cake recipe, however Sonia from La Piña en la Cocina published a recipe on Hispanic Kitchen not long ago for her version. Here it is: http://hispanickitchen.com/la-panaderias-mexican-pink-cake/ Have you seen this recipe? It is also called Pastel de Niños. I’ll have to put this one on my recipe radar and test some versions out soon! Let me know what you think🙂
