Gofio is a roasted cereal typical from Canary Islands. It’s been a long time since I’ve tasted gofio, in my last visit to the Canary Islands, and whenever I go there I love to eat gofio desserts. My friend Susana, who has family in La Palma, gave me this gofio corn flour as a present and always brings me a little package. Susana is also the great graphic designer of all the müesli labels.
The cereal can be wheat flour or corn, its characteristic toasted flavor gives a special touch to the desserts and it is also great for breakfast mixed with milk and it is a very complete breakfast to start the day.
Gofio mousse is also very good but as the highest percentage used for this dessert is cream, I decided to prepare a lighter sweet and also gluten-free for those with allergies.
