Corn hot cereal question

Every time I serve corn on the cob for dinner, hubby is reminded of some sort of breakfast hot cereal he had as a boy. He says it was made out of corn, and had a white, sweet and creamy consistency. Hmm...Has anyone every had this before and know the name of it? I'd like to try making it for him. Guess I'll go and search some Salvadorian dishes. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

If you're looking for a hot cereal, how about grits?

Grits is different than this one Andy. But thank you so much anyway for trying. I found it here http://ozzo.freeshell.org/foros/new/...display&num=13 Atol de Elote means "corn hot cereal". Sounds pretty good since it calls for milk, cinnamon and sugar.

Yes. I asked my husband if it was cornmeal but he says he remembers the fresh corn taste in this cereal. Thank you. Cornmeal sounds wonderful too and I will have to try making it that way too.

I'll have to take your word for it. Your Spanish is clearly a lot better than mine.

I did a quick google on the Jamaican porridge - I remember it as being a tad too sweet for my Scottish tastebuds - my oat porridge is served with salt and a little milk only!

Andy, I'll be glad to translate it for you if you're interested in making it.

Ishbel, I'm going to try your recipe with cornmeal. Sounds wonderful; thank you. I found the actual Salvadorian recipe called "Atol de Elote" (means corn hot cereal) and is made from fresh corn, liquified with milk, strained and cooked with a tad of cinnamon and sugar. I'm going to surprise my husband with it soon.

Dina..... it's not my recipe! I only copied the URL.
Both versions sound quite sweet for my taste, but I bet your husband will love your version of the Salvadorean dish.
