How to make Mazamorra Antiqueña

Mazamorra Antiqueña is a dish very popular in the Antioquia department of Colombia, and is the region in which I grew up. I posted a simple and quick recipe to make mazamorra made with canned hominy some time ago, but I’ve been wanting to post my mom’s recipe for a while now, which is made from scratch, and I finally made it this week.

I grew up eating Mazamorra Antioqueña, but I wasn’t a huge fan of it as a child. My grandmother and my mom always made it at home and they absolutely loved it! For me mazamorra is kind of bland, but I know many Colombians love this traditional dish, so here is the recipe for you.

This Mazamorra Antioqueña is usually served for dessert with panela, a sugar cane product, or bocadillo (guava paste) on the side.

Buen provecho!

    Wow, I can’t believe it’s that easy! Question- Is the corn you’re using the same as the kind you buy for popcorn?

    You can buy the corn in a Mexican store most likely in the united states. That is where I got mine… They are everywhere… You’ll want cracked… And no, it is not chicken feed either. That is treated with stuff for them.

    Soy Colombiana y me gusta la gastronomia por sus deliciosos platos como el arroz con pollo, maduros con queso, arepas. pan de queso, enpanadas,bunuelos, sancocho con costilla y pollo y los tamales Huilences son los mejores. Vivo aca desde el ano 1965 y estuve en Colombia una sola vez en el ano 1968 y gozo preparando estos sabrosos platos para mis nietas e hijos.
