Sweet Cornmeal Cake Brazilian-Style

Sweet Cornmeal Cake Brazilian-Style

VickyLondres

"Very easy and fast to make from scratch and healthy, too. In Brazil, this cake is a favorite along a cup of coffee for breakfast. It is very similar in texture to a cornmeal bread, but only this is a sweet cake instead. Stir your favorite seeds or walnuts into the blended batter before pouring into the pan, if desired."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 340 degrees F (170 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10-inch round cake pan.
  2. Blend cornmeal, sugar, milk, coconut milk, flour, eggs, and vegetable oil in a blender until smooth; add baking powder and blend to integrate. Pour the cornmeal mixture into the prepared cake pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 30 to 40 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • I use coconut oil but, for neutral flavor use canola oil.
  • In Brazil, people usually mix a pinch of fennel seeds to the batter. This is how my mother makes it. I use walnuts instead, just because I add walnuts to everything.
  • Brown sugar and white sugar can be used interchangeably in this recipe, to taste preference.
  • You can use 2 cups of regular milk, if you don't like coconut milk, in which case the amount of oil should be increased to 1 full cup.

Loved it. Used all milk instead of coconut milk since I didn't have any. Not great the next day. Ended up being a little dry. I think next time I'll add butter to it, see if that keeps it from ...

Followed the recipe as outlined. It's too sweet and may be better with a coarse corn meal. I would not make this again.
