“So tasty and such an easy recipe! This cake is perfect for breakfast or for an afternoon snack. I’ve found several versions of the original Brazilian recipe (some involve a couple more steps than the one I went for), but I figured this simpler version works just as nicely when you wish for a great turnaround in a few easy steps. Enjoy 🍊”
