Am posting this Venezuelan recipe as part of my participation in Zaar's World Tour 4! NOTE: Recipezaar does not recognize the ingredient 'harina pan' (available in South American grocery stores) which MUST be used in place of the 'corn flour' ingredient!

This is mildly sweet and very delicious corn based pancakes. I tried making these using 1/4 C per recipe and I could not flip it easily - kept on breaking up. Once I reduced the batter to about 2 1/2 inch diameter, had much easier time cooking and flipping these. The trick is to make sure one side is nicely dried a bit before turning. Instead of eating these with cheese, they were served with a dollop of sour cream. I am now going to look for more recipes using harina pan. Thank you Sydney Mike for introducing me to a new ingredient and posting this yummy recipe.
