    This is not AT ALL like the real Cachapa recipe. They come out hard since it has all those pieces of corn and the batter is too thick.

    Aunque esta no es la receta exacta, las variaciones también son aceptadas. Ahora me pregunto que significa harina de masa? Porque no se si es harina de trigo. Y sigan las recomendaciones de las otras que también son válidas.

    Hola, esta receta no se acerca a la verdadera cachapa venezolana, no por esto quiero decir que sea mala, pero la cachapa se hace con jojoto (maiz) tierno, se le puede agregar azucar si lo prefieres mas dulce y es mas grande como una tortilla, al momento de servir se le una mantequilla y queso guayanes por encima, como aqui es dificil conseguirlo coloca un queso suave.
