The cachapas are a very popular dish in Venezuela, especially in the eastern region of the country, usually they are sold in small restaurants on the edge of the road, the cachapas are basically a sweet corn pancakes that are usually served with ¨Queso de mano¨ (cheese), fried pork or ham and cheese.

I love Venezuelan cuisine, the influence of other cultures has made it rich and the variety of flavors is complex but simple at the same time. While I was doing these cachapas, I remembered my childhood, when I helped my grandmother to grind corn, to make traditional cachapas all together as a family, I like to recall those happy moments of my early days in the kitchen, they are the kind of moments that make me continue cooking.

I hope you like the recipe and make the Cachapas at home, the cornmeal flour I use is Juana, especially made for cachapas, if you can't get it,  replace it for more corn and a tablespoon of flour.
