We had a bunch of bananas that were at that point where they HAVE to be consumed, otherwise they'll have to be thrown away. So, I thought; Why not?
It took me about an hour and half from start to finish. It was made from scratch (no cake mix crap) and the batter was primitively beaten. Smile

Can I get a Yum! Yum! ?

Sorry! I'm just so proud of myself.

PS: I'll be more than happy to share the recipe if anyone would like.

What Brazilian isn't? ;-)

Where do you live?

Oh, and you wouldn't happen to know how to make Pão de Quiejo without a pre-made mix would you?

Recipe please!


Ingredients:

3 1/2 cups of sugar
4-6 bananas
4 eggs
3 spoons of butter
1 1/2 cups of sugar
1 cup of milk
3 cups of flour
1 spoon of yeast


Beat the eggs, butter and 1 1/2 cups of sugar until you get a creamy consistency.
Then you add the yeast, the milk and the flour little by little and alternately until the batter is uniform. (put aside)
Caramelize the 3 1/2 cups of sugar on a pot and smear it over the pan that you'll be baking the cake in.
Slice the bananas and place them on top of the caramelized sugar on the bottom of the pan. Add the batter.
Bake it for 35-40 mins at about 375º F.

And there you have it! You have to flip the cake right after coming out of the oven (while hot hot), otherwise the bananas will stick to the pan (the caramelized sugar hardens when it cools off ).

Technically, in Chicago. Right now I'm in Fortaleza on a very very prolonged break from life, err, I mean, vacation. I'm heading back mid January though <sigh>.

Sooo... are you brazilian?


Pão de Queijo

Ingredients:

5 cups of polvilho doce (what is the english equivalent to polvilho anyway?)
4 cups of shredded cheese
1 cup of milk
1 cup of water
1 cup of oil
1 cup of eggs (yes, 1 cup)

Bring the milk, water and oil to a boil and remove from the heat. Add the "polvilho" and beat it. Let it cool off and add the cheese and the eggs. Mix it until the batter is uniform. Roll it into small balls, place them into a greased approx. 1 inch away from each other and bake it until golden brown.

Yuum!

Nope, but I've lived in Brazil 3 times. I even lived in Fortaleza for a while.

It was one of my happiest times, I never wore a shirt or shoes.

Hmm, I don't know. It may just be easier to get Yoki mix.

hmmmmmm, polvilho is manioc starch
substitute is yoki mix
and gnocchi are ...

food and language - an interesting intersection

ohhh - these guys suggest tapioca starch as a substitute. tapioca starch is fairly simple to come by.

Thanks ehBeth!

I googled it and didn't find anything. Not even with the Altavista online translator, which is useless most of the time anyway...
My dictionary says fine powder, manioc. whatever! I like your interpretation better!

Thanks Beth - we do have several portugese-brazillian markets here. Plus, my upstairs neighbor is Brazillian - maybe I should ask her where a good place to shop is.

littlek they're like everywhere in Boston! Sorry.. I couldn't contain myself.

Maybe you'll find it in Somerville or Framingham... Which is where the brazilian community is heavily concentrated.
No... I haven't been there, but I worked as an interpreter long enough to notice where the calls were mostly coming from. It's gotta be sth like Brazil, but outside Brazil.

Hmm, I've always wondered if mandioca was related to tapioca.
