Brazilian Praline Coffee Cake
From the kitchens of the old the South US to the ovens of Brazil, a cake with praline that will sweeten any coffee rendezvous. Check it out!
This recipe was given to me by Ms. Matilda Gonsalves de Andrade. An outstanding amateur chef from Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. She learned it while her husband was completing his MBA in Alabama in the mid 70’s. After that, the recipe was adapted to share hints of our Brazilian taste.
A quick and easy Brazilian coffee cake, this delicacy has a treaty combination of both Hemispheric Americas, with fantastic subtleties of flavors and textures.
A great cake for breakfast, brunch, dessert or late night indulgence.
I have tried some changes in the formula that could be fun to test:
- only one tsp of instant coffee
- real butter instead as shortening
- add some fruit, like pineapple cubes, or blueberries to the mix!
These cakes bake quite well in about 35 minutes here at home, but times may vary depending on your oven.
Everyone here at home loves this cake. I’m sure your family will too.
I hope you enjoy and tell your friends about the coffee cake recipe and this website. Please leave a comment below.
