Chi Chi's Sweet Corn Cake

A couple years ago my favorite Mexican restaurant closed, taking with it incredibly large chicken burritos and sweet corn cake. It was a very sad day. But weep no more, my fellow Chi Chi's fans! I've found a copy cat recipe for their corn cake!

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup corn flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1 cup sour cream (can use non-fat)
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened

In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients. In another bowl, combine egg, sour cream, milk, and butter. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened; pour into greased 8" square baking pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Serve warm.
