    The pancake side you refer to is possibly Pan Bati, served in many Aruban restaurants.

    "Pan Bati
    Very popular side dish that goes very well with Seafood and other typical Aruban delicacies ...

    To make Pan Bati:

    Mix in a bowl:
    2 cups flour
    1 cup corn flour
    2 tbs baking powder
    pinch of salt
    sugar to taste

    Add:
    1 egg
    1 3/4 cup milk
    vanilla to taste

    Batter the mixture until it becomes smooth (approx. 25 min) . If it is not smooth enough add a little water gradually until it smoothens. Like pancakes, put the mixture on a greased pan and turn the pan bati upside down when the downside is brown or dry."

    ArubaLisa, on the Keshi Yena Chicken from Gasparito's the procedure calls for capers, but no amount is listed in the ingrediants, maybe a T? Also I assume the chicken goes in with all the rest of the ingrediants after cooking the onions, but it does not list it that way. Do you think my assumption is correct? Not having had it before, I have no taste or visual experience to draw on. Thanks, Larry

    Sorry, I honestly do not know. I just posted the recipe from the link listed. Checking the link again, it does not say the amount of caper.

    I do know my husband's recipe comes out terrific everytime and tastes every bit as good as Gasparito's.

    When I made it, I left out the capers (because I didn't have any and was to lazy to get them) and it turned out very tasty....

    Arrow Help!

    Dh is baking this on Saturday for guests from Aruba (along with of course Keshi Yena and Pastechi ).

    Andrea, did you bake your cake in layers like Aruba Destiny? Dh is wondering if he needs to double the recipe to do layers.

    Hope they are not expecting an Italian meal , but they do love his KY better than their own!

    Dh doubled the cashew cake recipe and tripled the icing recipe and came up with a darn nice cake. FWIW, cashews are expensive in the food stores here, he found the best price for them at Trader Joes. Make SURE they are not salted!! Ours are unsalted and dd is insisting that the cake (from the crumbs and icing she sampled) is salty.

    Thumbs up Pastechis (Antillean Meat Turnovers)

    This recipe is a little different than the one I posted originally. They are time consuming. A good rainy day project, or good if you have a helper who will actually help , not hinder , you.

    The recipe calls for them to be fried. We tried a couple both baked and fried and honestly there is not a big difference. For ease and health, just bake them for 10 minutes at 475 F.

    We go mild on most spices so dh omitted the hot pepper/tabasco, curry, caper, olive and raisins. Still came out terrific.
