Delicious - Pamonha cake

My friend sent me this recipe last Friday,
I had to try it out because one of my favorite dishes of Brazil is the Pamonha!

Pamonha (Portuguese pronunciation: [paˈmõȷ̃ɐ]) is a traditional Brazilian food. It is a paste made from fresh corn and milk, boiled wrapped in corn husks. Variations may include coconut milk. Pamonhas can be savoury or sweet, the latter being the norm in north-east Brazil. They can be filled with cheese, sausage, peppers or be natural. Roadside restaurants specializing in pamonha and other corn dishes are common in Northeast Region Brazil.

If you love corn and cheese,
this recipe is for you!

Check the original recipe here
it is in Portuguese but is easily translated by "google translate".

-Corn bread-

I used the Mexican type cheese sour cream
 which is very tasty and replaces Brazilian cheese that is used in the original recipe.
But one of these bwllow will taste DELICIOUS!

 Also in place of "Milharina" I used the corn bread mix (any one of your choice), brown sugar and whole wheat flour.

There is my Pamonha/corn bread:

Try it, 
you will not regret it!
Have a great day!

  2. Wow this looks delicious! I have a good friend who's from Brazil. I wonder if I ask her about the Pamonha cake that she may know what it is.

  3. Rose- it is delicious :-) thank you for stopping by ;-)
