Arepitas de Maíz…Ahhhh! So good.
A simple finger food made with cornmeal, eggs, butter, milk, sugar and salt. Some people like to add anise.
Where’s my coffee?
Here’s the recipe.
- 2 cups of Cornmeal
- 1 1/4 cup of milk
- 2 teaspoons of sugar
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 1 teaspoon of unsalted butter
- 1 egg
- anise (optional)
- Oil for frying
Mix the dry ingredients and set aside.
Heat the milk with the butter and add to the cornmeal mixture. Make a dough and let it cool completely.
Once cool, add the egg and mix well.
In a frying pan, heat the oil over medium-high heat.
Drop the dough one spoonful at a time and fry until golden brown.
Transfer to a plate with paper towels to absorb the extra oil.
