Bom-bocado (Sweet Bite)

Bom-bocado (Sweet Bite)


“Bom-bocado” literally means good-bite, and it is a sweet pastry of the Portuguese monastic confectionery tradition, that uses a lot of eggs yolks, sugar, almonds and cheese. It is very similar to “queijadinha”.
In Brazil, however, coconut flour is used as a substitute for almonds, and usually whole eggs are used instead of the yolks. Nowadays there are a multitude of delicious versions of this recipe that use local products such as corn flour or cassava and, recently, the condensed milk.

• 150 g dehydrated shredded coconut (hydrated with 50 ml water)
• 250 g sugar
• 50 g grated Parmesan cheese
• 25 g melted butter
• 5 eggs
