My Picks:

Corn Cake (Bolo de Milho)

Friday Jun 15, 2012

Since it is June, I thought I would post a traditional food from the Brasilian celebration of Festa Junina.  During this party you will find many flavorful brasilian dishes made of corn, coconuts, peanuts, cassava and many others.  It is a celebration that once experienced will never be forgotten. The music, dances and costumes are definitely something to remember.  Here is a little nostalgic recipe I share with you.  Hope you like it:

Bolo de Milho Molhadinho

1 can corn (rinse and can and use it for the next measurements)

1 can of corn meal (fuba)

2 eggs

1/2 can oil

1 1/2 can sugar

1 can milk

100 grms parmesan cheese


1 T baking powder

Add all ingredients into the blender.  Blend until smooth.  Butter and flower a cake pan (i used a 10 inch round cake pan).

Preheat the oven to 350.  Bake it until a tooth pick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Once the cake is done drizzle the following mixture on top:

1/2 can sweetened condensed milk

1/4 c milk

Mix well, pour on top of baked cake.  Sprinkle the cake with shredded coconut.
