This is a rolled-up crispy wafer tube about 20 cm in size, with a filling to your taste. Usually, it is stuffed with Gouda cheese along with a sweet stuffing — Nutella, banana, strawberries, Peanut butter, various jams, cajeta (a type of caramel sauce), chocolate sauce, condensed milk, etc. The taste of Marquesitas is unique for its perfect combination of sweet, salty, crunchy and soft ingredients all at the same time.
Marquesitas are street food in the busy corners the Yucatan, and one of the favorite local delicacies. And it is very interesting to observe the process of cooking Marcasites, very exciting. They are sold on the street and they are made on small carts, using a gas flame and a heavy press to heat up and make the waffles. The batter is poured from the jug into the press and flattened, first preparing one side of the gas fire, then the heavy press turns over and the second side is prepared for even cooking. Excess dough that goes out during cooking is cut with a knife at the edges of the press. Then the press opens and then comes with fillings of your choice. Our favorite Marquesita is Nutella with cheese and banana! First Nutella is spread with a knife, then it is sprinkled with Grated Gouda cheese from
above, the banana is cut into circles and placed in the middle. The wafer is then rolled into a straw, and one end is smeared on top with a little Nutella and sprinkled again with grated cheese. Simple and very tasty!
