We spent 3 weeks in Puerto Penasco, Mexico in February and I wanted to try my hand at adapting our meals to the ingredients available in that small fishing village. I found a package of masa (corn flour) with a hot cake recipe on the back. These were so good, I made them multiple times!
Next weekend, I will explain how to cook the plantains I used for a garnish.
Masa Harina Hot Cakes
Mexican Hot Cakes
1 cup masa (I used Maseca brand, which is commonly available in the US)
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 tablespoons oil
¾ cup water or milk substitute
Mix all ingredients. Pour about 1/3 cup onto heated and lightly greased griddle per pancake. Turn when bubbles begin to form on the top side. Serve with butter, syrup and fried plantains.
This is the masa I found in the Puerto Penasco grocery store that I thought would be safe since it says 100% maiz on the package. The package had the Hot Cake recipe on the back. It called for milk, but I substituted with coconut milk.
