Almojábana is a type of bread made with cuajada cheese and corn flour.[1][2] It is typical of some South American countries and is a staple in Panama and Colombia, where it is sold in most bakeries. Versions are also eaten in Puerto Rico[3] and Spain, especially at festivals.

Etymology[edit]

The name almojábana comes from the Arabic word “almugábbana” which means a “mix made with cheese”.
