"Using milk instead of water in the arepas will make them a little richer, a little denser, and, that's right - delicious! Split and serve with a pat of butter and a drizzle of honey, or make a breakfast sandwich with a drizzle of maple syrup, a slice of cheese and cooked ham, and a fried egg." — Chef John

milk at room temperature

This is good with vegan cream cheese! I actually used cornmeal instead of crn flour, and needed to increase the amount by 3/4 cup extra cornmeal. Wonderful taste! Thanks for the recipe! It reminds me of what a friend treated me to years ago!
