Arepas de Chocolo ( Sweet Corn Cakes)

Arepa de chocolo are sweet corn cakes that are eaten in Colombia. They are sweeter than normal arepas and are usually served with a slice of fresh cheese or mozzarella cheese. These are so so good!

3 cups of corn kernels
1 1/2 tsp sugar
1 tsp of salt
3 tbsp of all purpose flour
non-stick cooking spray
Queso fresco or mozzarella cheese to serve

  1. Grind corn kernels,sugar and salt.
  2. With spoon mix the corn mixture with flour.
  3. Heat greased griddle and pour batter to make the arepa.
  4. Cook about 5 minutes on medium heat on each side until golden brown and crispy.( you can also finish them in the oven for 5 minutes on 300 degrees  if they are too difficult to handle)
  5. Serve immediately and add a slice of cheese on top. These are great with a cup of hot chocolate or coffee! :)
Enjoy, Buen Provecho!
