Similar to a cinnamon roll, “Golfeados” are Venezuelan traditional and very yummy sweet rolls snacks. The key ingredients in this case are the “papelón” (a molasses-like product of sugar cane processing, AKA Jeggary), anise seeds and “Queso Blanco” a white salty cheese. All is rolled inside a sweet roll dough, then baked, drizzled with syrup made with papelón and anise seeds, and sprinkled with more cheese. They are delicious and when you try it once you will love them forever
Cachapas are Venezuelan traditional “pancakes” made mainly with fresh corn. However when abroad is difficult to find the same type of corn used normally to prepare them.
Thought this “version” contains few different ingredients, the results are very close to the real ones in flavor and texture…
If you like “Cachapas you should give it a try, and if you have never eaten them you should.
