As I recently have some time, I had been looking on the internet last week. In search of new, challenging ideas, inspiring meals that I’ve never used before, to impress my family with. Searching for quite some time but couldn’t come across lots of interesting things. Just before I thought to give up on it, I came upon this delicious and simple treat simply by chance on Suncakemom. It looked so delicious on its snapshot, that called for prompt actions.

It was not difficult to imagine the way it’s created, how it tastes and just how much my husband will probably want it. Actually, it is very easy to impress the man in terms of cakes. Yes, I’m a lucky one. Or perhaps he is.Anyway, I got into the page and followed the detailed instuctions that had been coupled with great photos of the operation. It just makes life much easier. I could suppose it’s a slight inconvenience to shoot photos in the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you typically have gross hands so that i genuinely appreciate the time and effort she put in to make this blogpost .

With that said I’m empowered presenting my own, personal recipes in the same way. Many thanks the concept.

I had been fine tuning the original formula to make it for the taste of my loved ones. I must mention it had been a great success. They loved the flavour, the thickness and enjoyed getting a sweet like this during a stressful workweek. They ultimately asked for lots more, a lot more. Thus the next time I’m not going to make the same mistake. I’m going to multiply the quantity to keep them happy.

Thanks for SunCakeMom who made the Arepas Recipe a reaility

Mix the ingredients in a bowl by hand until the dough comes together into a ball. If it sticks to the hand or the side of the bowl, add more flour to it. If it seems dry and falling apart, add more water to it.

Add oil to the dough ball and knead it further.

Flatten the dough into a circle shape.

Divide the dough into eight equal parts.

Make balls from the eight dough parts.

Flatten the dough balls into ½ ” / 1.5cm tall circles. This would yield about 4″/10cm wide circles.

With an oily hand rub together the cracks on the side of the dough if present.

Pour oil into a pan and fry one side of the circle shaped dough on medium heat. It takes about 5 minutes to achieve a golden brown color and hard outer layer.

Flip over the dough and fry the other side as well.

When both sides are done place them into the oven for 10 – 15 minutes on 350°F / 180°C.

Fill with any filling of choice.
