Expert Tips

You can use fresh corn or canned corn; just make sure they’re well strained.

Torta de Jojoto (corn) is a classic Venezuelan dish. I love it and best of all, it’s very easy to make. The special touch comes from the cheese; it adds a unique and delicious flavor. It’s best to use corn while it’s in season, otherwise you can use canned corn. Enjoy!

Directions

  • 1 Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease and 8x8-inch mold. Set aside.
  • 2 Mix the flour, salt and baking soda in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • 3 Whip the butter and sugar with a hand mixer at medium speed until the mixture is pale, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, and continue mixing. Add the milk bit by bit until it’s all been added.
  • 4 Lower the speed and add the flour mixture, combine until you have an even consistency. Add the cheese and mix until well combined.
  • 5 Place the mixture in the mold and bake for 35-40 minutes or until its firm and lightly browned.
  • 6 Let cook completely before serving.
