Maizena Tamal #SundaySupper

Maizena Tamal #SundaySupper

 

I want to start by saying that my father was a wonderful person and every time I think about him tears come out, I miss him so much and not only on father’s day but every day.

Ok, no more tears let’s talk about happy memories and the wonderful time we spend together. This maizena tamal was one of his favorites for afternoon coffee and I remember my grandmother making it all the time, it took me a while to master her recipe but I finally got it right.

I’m so happy to be able to make it for my husband and my daughters for this father’s day and to share it with my friends. And let me tell you a little bit about this tamal; in Costa Rica we have different kinds of tamles, we make the traditional with masa harina and the sweet kind made in this case with corn starch, yes as you can see this tamal is completely gluten-free.

One of the things we love about it is to make it and serve with a hot cup of coffee in the morning or the afternoon and is delicious at room temperature or cold. This is definitely one of my favorites and I’m so happy to be able to share it with all of you for this special day.

    This pie reminds me of a buttermilk pie, maybe more custard-like. It sounds wonderful – especially as you say with coffee!

  • Thank you for sharing your father’s favorite coffee time recipe <3 Time is indeed precious… So glad your family can enjoy your delicious looking Maizena Tamal =)

  • I haven’t heard of a sweet tamal but these look delicious
