Yield
1 Servings
MeasureIngredient
7 ounces Masa harina
1½ quart Water
3 cups Milk
8 ounces Piloncillo / brown sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
4" canela / cinnamon stick

Dissolve the masa harina in 1 quart of water, then strain the water into a saucepan (throw away the masa). Boil until it is thick, stirring with a wooden spoon, about 15 minutes. Add the milk, piloncillo, vanilla, and canela. Bring the liquid back to a simmer, stirring often to thicken. This will take about 45 minutes, keeping the heat at a minimum so the milk doesn't curdle.

Remove the canela stick before serving.

[ SOURCE 1998-Ap ] >>Hanneman/Buster Notes: Tamales and Atole have been a classic combination since pre-Hispanic times. There are Atole counters in the markets throughout Mexico.
