A quick and easy Brazilian cornmeal cake recipe.

This recipe is from my cousin Kathy from Food For Every Season. Her grandma’s recipe from Brazil which used coffee cups for measurements so Kat had to translate this recipe into real measurements, and I’m glad she did. Everything goes in the blender, now that’s my kind of baking!

I love this cake. Every time I’m with her I ask her to make it for me. I even asked her to make this for my birthday. It’s similar in texture to cornbread only sweeter and moister. You can have it for breakfast, or eat it for dessert.

In fact, as I am typing this right now, I wish I had a piece right now. Try it and let me know what you think. And yes, there is parmesan cheese in here, I was surprised seeing that myself but it works! I wouldn’t change a thing!
