A beautiful award

A beautiful award

For this occation I made “Guarapo de piña” a Venezuelan beverage that is fermented pineapple with “papelón”, papelón is cane sugar’s molasses boiled then it is poured in special molds to solidify, it has the shape of a cone or a rectangle (you can buy it in Latin American or Asian stores) this “guarapo” is really, really delicious and refreshing so for a hot weather is perfect.
Also, I made a corn cake other Venezuelan dessert that is so delicious, you can not hide you are baking this cake because your house will be filled with the smell of corn …






Fresh Corn Cake.


500 gr fresh corn kernel
150 gr Venezuelan white cheese. .( white salty cheese, some people say feta is a good substitute)
4 egg whites.
4 egg yolks.
150 gr white sugar.
2 cups water.
9 tablespoons milk powder.
200 gr unsalted butter. (melted).
2 tablespoons all purpose flour.
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder.
½ teaspoon salt.
½ teaspoon baking soda


1- Whisk the egg whites until soft picks form then gradually add half cup of sugar and whisk until stiff picks.
2- Blend the rest of the ingredients and pour this mix in a bowl.
3- Fold the egg whites into the corn mixture.
4- Pour the batter in a cake pan (greased and floured) and bake at 180°C until it is light brown, the wooden stick will not come about so clean as you can see in the picture

Guarapo De Piña


I do not throw away the pineapple peel, see what I do.
350 gr pineapple peel. ( clean and cur in small pieces)
300 gr papelón . (grated)
2 liters water.


1- In a glass jar, place a layer of pineapple peel the a layer of papelón, repeat until you finish all the ingredients then add the water gradually.
2- Cover the jar with a cling film and let it rest in the refrigerator for two days. take the jar out of the refrigerator and let it room temperature for about 12 hours.
