Millas Charentais is a cake made from corn flour reminiscent of the texture of a flan. The name Millas could come from millet, a cereal used before the appearance of corn. Originally made of flour and water, this preparation served as a dish for the poorest. Later, milk, eggs and other delicacies were added to it to make a pastry.
