DOMINICAN AREPA (CORNMEAL AND COCONUT CAKE)
Arepa is a popular dish, and loved by all. The ingredients are inexpensive, the cooking does not require great expertise, and it can be made with basic utensils.
Cornmeal | Butter | Whole Milk | Sugar | Coconut Milk | Salt | Cinnamon | Raisins
Grease a baking pan (2 ½ quart) with butter.
Mix butter, cornmeal, milk, coconut milk, salt, raisins, cinnamon, and sugar.
Stir the batter with a spatula and pour into a 3 quart cooking pot and heat on the stove over medium heat, stirring constantly to avoid sticking.
When it breaks the boil, lower the heat and continue stirring until it thickens enough.
Pour batter into the pan and bake for 40 minutes preheated oven to 350 ºF [175 ºC].
Let it cool down to room temperature before removing from the pan.
Serve with hot cocoa or coffee.
