Almojábana is a type of bread made with cuajada cheese and corn flour.[1][2]


An almojábana is a small, bun-shaped bread with a tart flavor. In Cali and Valle de Cauca (around Cali) it is called pan de bono and are bagel-shaped instead of bun-shaped.[1]


Almojábanas are made with masarepa or pre-cooked white cornmeal, cottage cheese, butter, baking powder, salt, eggs and milk.
