  • 5 ears corn, shucked
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup finely ground cornmeal
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter


  1. In the bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade, puree the corn with milk, sugar, salt, pepper, egg, and cornmeal. The batter should be the consistency of a thick pancake batter.

  2. Heat a large nonstick saute pan over low heat. Add 1 tablespoon butter. When the butter has melted and is hot, add batter, forming 3-inch rounds. Cook for 2 minutes, turn, and cook for 2 minutes more. Remove from pan and set aside. Repeat process with remaining butter and batter. The cachapas may be made 2 hours in advance and kept uncovered at room temperature. They may be reheated in a 350-degree oven until heated through.
