Colombian Corn Cakes (Envueltos de Maíz) are different from the Corn Cakes you may know. These look like traditional tamales; however, they are sweet.
These Corn Cakes are a Colombian delight. They are made of corn, cheese, and sometimes raisins. They are usually enjoyed for breakfast or a mid-morning snack with coffee or hot chocolate. In this recipe for Envuelto de Maíz, we use Tropical Quesito Colombiano Cheese for a more authentic flavor. If you prefer something a bit sweeter, just add raisins. Colombian Envuelto de Maíz can also be called Envuelto de Mazorca or Envuelto de Choclo.
