Typical Brazilian desserts

Brazilian sweets and desserts not only give us the opportunity to forget about our diet and indulge ourselves with so much sweetness, they also give us the opportunity to enjoy a great variety of local and regional ingredients. Let’s get to know them

Cocadas

Cocadas or coconut candies are popular in many Latin American countries and in Brazil it could not be missing, since it is a very simple sweet to prepare with grated coconut, eggs, butter, wheat flour and sugar.

Coconut Beijinho

Among the list of sweets made with coconut, we could not miss a very rich, sweet and nutritious Brazilian dessert. We are talking about the Beijinho de coco: small balls of sweet coconut, which can be very similar to coconut candy, but with the difference that condensed milk and butter are used for its preparation.

Brigadeiro

This traditional Brazilian dessert can be considered the most popular and representative at parties and social events, as it has a similar shape to the classic “cupcake”, but do not expect to see different types of flavors, as the Brigadeiro is prepared exclusively with chocolate and condensed milk.

Mini cakes

In some countries and regions in the world in general, one way to refer to cakes is as “tarts”. Well, mini tarts are small cakes that we find in the various restaurants and sweet and dessert stores in Brazil.

But unlike many places in the world where a “mini pie” is just a piece of a “full pie”, in Brazil it is not like that. Here, a complete mini cake is made, and by the way, its main flavors are very citric fruits.

Brazilian Pavé

The Brazilian Pavé is made with milk, vanilla, brandy and is left to freeze in the freezer for at least 3 hours. With this we get an idea that it is an iced dessert, similar to a cake, but much softer, richer and of course, “richer” because of the brandy used in its preparation.

Bolo de Rolo

Bolo de Rolo is prepared with wheat flour, eggs, butter and sugar. It is then rolled up to have a “very large” of different layers.

Canjica

In many of the typical desserts of Brazil, coconut is a must and proof of this is the Canjica. A very tasty traditional dessert made with corn, condensed milk, sugar and coconut. By the way, this sweet can be confused with the classic “rice pudding”.

Quindim

Whatever they say, Quindim is a pudding. A pudding made with coconut, butter, lemon juice, eggs and sugar.

Doce de abóbora

Doce de abóbora is a “pumpkin candy”. We know that this candy is popular during All Saints’ Day in Mexico, but in Brazil it is not. Being a tropical country, it has a lot of fruits and vegetables at its disposal.

Therefore, pumpkin candies are present at all times. However, it is worth mentioning that this candy is “accompanied” with coconut.

Couscous White

Although white couscous may look like a milk, rice or coconut sweet, we could not be more wrong, because it is a rich cassava sweet.

Pé de moleque

The Pé de moleque has a similar shape to the “palanquetas” of Mexico, but they are very different, because it is made with molasses or panela and nuts such as peanuts, for example.

Rome and Julieta

This Brazilian sweet was born around the 60’s and is one of the most, but one of the simplest to prepare, since it uses only a piece of cheese (Romeo) served with guava candy (Julieta).

Dutch Cake

Although it has “Holandesa” in its name and just because of this we could think that it is a recipe from the other side of the planet, the reality is that we all look like clowns. It is a peculiar dessert from Brazil and originates from this country.

Breaded plantain

We all know the fried plantain from Mexican cuisine, but in Brazil they take it to a much higher level of madness by “breading” it, but against all odds it is super tasty and you have to try it.

Conclusion

As we can see, there is a great amount of Brazilian sweets and desserts that are “unknown” to us and this is due to the fact that Brazil is unique in its gastronomic culture and very jealous, so very few flavors and smells get out of the country to reach other places.
