Steps to make Cachapas: Venezuelan Corn Cakes


Prepare batter


In a food processor, blend the corn, cream, salt, melted butter, and cornstarch until you have a smooth, thick batter.


Heat oil


In a skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil.


Cook pancakes


Add about ¼ - ⅓ cup of the batter to skillet in a circular shape and cook until it begins to bubble and the spatula slides underneath, easily. Flip and cook further on the other side on a low heat. Be careful not to burn the batter. Continue with remaining batter.


Fill pancakes


Spread pancakes with butter and cheese to fill or top with queso fresco cheese.




Fold pancakes in half and serve!
