Lovely Corn Cake- Torta de Choclo

Road trips in Colombia are really fun. You almost have to be on diet for few weeks before the trip, so you can try the different food that you will find on the road. This corn cake reminds me of the cakes that my mom used to buy on the road when we were going to Bogota from Bucaramanga. My mom is a cake lover, so of course she would buy a 12″, cake with some other goodies and eat them on the drive.

If you decide to make this corn cake you will find that it is sweet, fluffy, and delicious. Easy recipe that you will get to enjoy with just few steps.

Try it!
