I know this is not a cake topic but can not find this on google
here in the UK we can not get corn husk wraps (if anyone knows different please direct me)
can i use baking parchment? and would i need to grease it?
have you tried looking for plantain leaves?? Apart for corn husks, many other countries use plantain leaves although they will give your tamale a different flavor...not so pronounced but they will give it a more earthy tone, I would experiment with parchment paper but I will recommend using a more sturdy and thicker parchment paper
Hopes this helps!
thanks for this lindsey- just had a look the postage is more than the product think i will try the parchment idea first. I have a mexican food shop here is yorkshire it is about 30 miles away so i will wait and do a store cupboard trip.
just thought about my asian shop will have to check out there freezer section. as suggested - thanks everyone.
