Latin Corn Pancakes Recipe – Cachapas
This easy to make latin corn pancakes recipe is perfect for breakfast, lunch and a quick dinner. In Venezuela, it’s a very popular dish that is often served with yummy melted cheese inside. Takes less than 10 minutes from start to finish.
Unlike regular American pancakes, this corn version is not sweet and more over the savory side. All the ingredients needed for this corn pancakes recipe are easily found in your pantry.
This dish reminds me of my childhood. My mom used to make it for supper on weeknights. The toasty corn flavor combined with the melted cheese is just amazing, and my daughters love these. They are actually called “Cachapas” and unlike arepas, these are soft and have the texture similar to a pancake. The batter can be made in advance and left
They are actually called “Cachapas” and unlike arepas, these are soft and have the texture similar to a pancake. The batter can be made in advance and left in the fridge until needed. You can double or triple this recipe and then just have it on your fridge to whip up at the last minute.
Sometimes I come home tired from hauling my girls all over town running errands, and defrosting a chicken is the last thing on my mind. This is my go-to dish for those nights.
My husband and girls ask for it. My oldest one even asked me to make one for her lunchbox to eat at school.
Making it is easy, just throw all the ingredients in a blender and that’s it! They cook just like regular pancakes in the griddle. After flipping them, I add shredded cheese and fold it in half. You can stuff them in way you would like. Some people add leftover chicken and vegetables, others stack them one on top of another and place shredded chicken and cheese in between layers. For me, I like it simple. Cachapa and cheese.
