Corn Meal Cake (Bolo de Fuba)

This is a Brazilian dessert and my grandmother's recipe.   This dessert forms two layers leaving a light and creamy top layer and a sweet and dense bottom.  My cousin Gina loves this cake.  I made it over the weekend and we couldn't even wait for it to cool.

Prep time:  15 minutes
Cook time:  50 minutes - 1 hour
Yield:  20-24 servings

3 cups milk
4 eggs
1-1/2 cup Yellow corn meal (coarse)
1-1/2 cup Granulated sugar
1-1/2 tablespoons All-purpose flour
2-1/2 tablespoons Unsalted butter, melted
1 tablespoon Baking powder
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350° F.
Grease a 13"x9"x2" baking pan with butter.  Use sugar to coat buttered pan.

Add milk,eggs, corn meal, sugar, flour, and butter to blender.  Mix all ingredients until blended well (about 1 minute).  Then add baking powder and grated Parmesan cheese and blend on lowest setting or pulse for a few seconds.

Pour mixture into baking pan and bake at 350° F for 50 minutes or until golden brown.  Remove from oven and let cool for 30 minutes before serving.
