Celestial goodness on a fork

This is Brazilian cake.
My sister-in-law, who has been here in Brazil visiting with us since New Year's, aptly named it, "Gain-20-Pounds-and-I-Don't-Even-Care-Cake."

See all those gooey, custard-y layers? They are carefully enveloped in sheets of moist chocolate cake and topped off with chocolate shavings so light they melt as they pass your lips.



Roll your eyes to the heavens and praise the Lord for inventing taste buds. New Year's diet: good riddance.

Ha. You think I MADE that?! Okay, you guys obviously think more of my cooking skills than I do. No, honeys - that's store bought.

So, no recipe? You really didn't make it? Then how am I going to try it? It looks way too good not to try. I'm off to google it and see if I can find a recipe. . .

LisAway said...

Oh yum! That sounds amazing.

Do you eat/make/like brigadieros? (sp?) YUM! We love those, and I heard of someone who boils spreads it between layers of cake. RICH. And yummy.

I think it could be called, "spend $1000 on a plane ticket just to eat it and not even care cake...

Should I do it again, Spring break is coming up, (he he he)

QUE SAUDADE!
