Ingredients

2 c
masarepa cornmeal
1 1/4 c
warm water
1/2 c
milk or buttermilk
4 Tbsp
butter, melted
1 tsp
salt
2 Tbsp
flour
1/2 tsp

1
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix all ingredients until smooth. Let sit 5-10 minutes so cornmeal absorbs liquid.

Lightly grease heavy skillet and cook arepas in batches until brown on each side, about 2-3 minutes per side.
4
Place on cookie sheet and bake 8-10 minutes.
