    I recently managed to obtain this interesting flour on-line. Its a Mexican ingredient and really is made from blue corn. Hard to find in the UK! Traditionally its used to make tortillas but I wondered what else I could do with it. I made some (vegan) pancakes using half wheat flour/half Masa they turned out very well. I also made a rather brick like cornbread loaf (not pictured).

    The masa has a very distinctive taste which is very different from regular masa. Anyway - has anyone got some inventive ideas as to what else I could use it for? I'm keen to experiment..

    Believe it or not, we can't find that locally, even at specialty or Latin markets that mostly cater to Mexicans and central Americans.

    That surprises me a lot. I imagined it was just normal stuff for you! It wasn't very expensive unless I include postage but I ordered a few other things too.
