Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • To remove corn kernels from the cob using a Bundt® pan, stand the shucked corn cob upright, with the tip of cob placed in the center hole of the Bundt® pan. Holding the cob steady, use a sharp knife and make long downward strokes on the cob, separating the kernels from the cob.

This was OK. My Mexican hubby gave it a 60% compared to his Moms. She has passed away and I can't ask her for the other 40%:( I think I did something wrong, since I added the buttermilk and it separated, was that supposed to happen? HHMM. I'm sorry Muy Bueno
