    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 cups tender corn kernels (canned corn may be used)
    • 3 teaspoons salt
    • 3/4-1 cup water (depending on how tender the corn is)
    • 3/4 cup sugar


    1. 1
      Mix all the ingredients in a blender.
    2. 2
      The mix should become thick and heavy.
    3. 3
      If not, add more corn or a few tablespoons of Jiffy Corn Muffins Mix (not gluten-free).
    4. 4
      Shape the mix into small pancakes approximately 1/2 inch thick and about 5 inches in diameter.
    5. 5
      Let them cook on medium heat for about one minute on each side, or until small bubbles form on the top.
    6. 6
      Pancakes should be served hot, and may be accompanied with cheese (feta cheese is a good option).

      I had a hard time making these. I wonder if it has anything to do with type of corn used? The puree wouldn't thicken so I added corn tortilla flour (masa harina) . I had to make a couple to get the hang of it, as those came out undercooked and fell apart.They take a long time to get crispy on the underside, but once they are golden brown, they are actually very good. Thank you for posting. Made for Fall PAC.

      i was so excited about finding this recipe and then fully bummed when it didn't turn out well. i tried with all my might, but i couldn't get the cachapas to work like pancakes, they kept running all over the frying pan, and my batter was quite thick and heavy. so i figured the only way to salvage was to serve it as polenta, but it was so damn sweet, neither i nor BF could finish it. and i added only a 1/2 cup of sugar instead of the 3/4 cup. maybe i'll try again with some flour or cornmeal added. sigh.
