Originating from Mexico, where there are over 60 types of native corn, Pan de Elote, also known as pan de choclo or pan de maiz, is a delightful pastry made from white or yellow corn kernels. It’s a beloved treat in many Latin American countries, and it’s a big hit in my home!

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
