Sopa De Capirotadas Hondurenas (Cheese and Cornmeal Cake Soup)

Grandma's recipe. It is traditionally made only during lent. It made a hearty meal for those who could not afford the fish that is usually eaten for lent. It took me forever to get this recipe from my grandmother and the few recipes posted on the internet looked kinda flaky. I now have it and am posting it for safekeeping. I do suggest using ONLY mexican or central american queso seco (dry cheese) because any other cheese simply will not work. This cheese does not have any moisture which allows the patties to hold well and it is salty enough that it almost eliminates the need to use any more salt. It can usually be found in most mexican stores or large specialty stores like Fiesta Mart.
