Step into the kitchen and create a heavenly puffy magical creation. These are called Gorditas de Nata, a Mexican street food found at carnivals, street fairs or other stands in Mexico. They look like huge puffy pancakes. They slice into them like you would a biscuit and slather on Nutella or other toppings. The direct translation for my variety today of Gorditas de Coco would be a Coconut Cream Biscuit. I liked Fat Pancake Biscuits but call them as you will. "Gordita" means fatty or chubby as is seen in the thickness of these magical cakes. â
They are soft, have a distinct sweet scent. Traditionally they are made with nata the fat that rises to the top of the milk when boiled, others usually use clotted cream as a substitute, so since it is the fat that rises to the top I chose coconut cream. When you refrigerate a full fat can of coconut milk the fat rises to the top, so we will use that in this recipe and it works wonders.
When you make them you'll likely have eyes glancing your way to see how they're coming, or visitors to see if any need testing, they disappear quickly, this recipe is a half batch so feel free to double this bad boy. They are seriously so delicious, you have to try! Get the recipe below. â
