Marvellous Masa!


The special flavour imparted by the masa is so reminiscent of Mexican cookery

Firm dough, ready to rest

When these pancakes are made large they are good as a main course, topped with grilled cheese, guacamole, grilled vegetables and sour cream, refried beans, ceviche, etc. Make lots of small ones as finger food or starters.
