Sweet Corn Griddle Cake
Arepas are round discs made of corn. There are different types of arepas, such as this Arepa de Choclo, Chócolo, or corn arepa, which is a sweet corn griddle cake very popular in Colombia and Venezuela. The difference between traditional corn arepas and Arepas de Choclo is that the latter are sweet because of the corn used in the preparation; moreover, they’re sweetened with brown sugar.
Arepas are a staple food in Colombia and Venezuela and are enjoyed at any time and in different ways depending on the region. Arepas de Choclo are served with cheese, melted or fresh, creating a perfect combination of the sweetness of the arepa and the saltiness of the cheese. They are a great option for breakfast, lunch, or as a snack.
