Brazilian recipe: Bom Bocado


Brazilian recipe, Bom Bocado
Bom Bocado


I am back in the kitchen this week, amongst other things I made Bom Bocado, this quick version of Bom Bocado means that you can have it in just over one hour.

Bom bocado means ‘good mouth-feel’ ‘delicious’, is a sweet treat made of eggs, milk and sugar with a strong Portuguese influence. In Portugal usually carries chopped almonds, or milk, flour in a crumbly dough. In Brazil, this sweet of the same name is commonly made of coconut, Parmesan cheese, milk,  butter and some versions cassava is added in its composition.

It’s a delicious treat accompanied by a cup of coffee or your favourite beverage.
