  1. Blend all the ingredients together in a blender. The mix should become thick and heavy. If not, add more corn.
  2. Shape the mix into small pancakes approximately ½ inch (1.5 cm) thick and about 5 inches (13 cm) in diameter. Let them cook on medium heat for about 1 minute on each side, or until small bubbles form on the top.
  3. Cachapas should be served hot and may be accompanied with cheese (feta cheese is one option, Mexican white cheese "Cotija", Venezuelan or Colombian "Queso Blanco" ,"Queso de Mano" or "Queso Guayanes" where available).
