Method:

Bake

Ingredients

CAVACAS BATTER

2 cups of flour
1 cup of oil
½ cup of milk
8 large eggs at room temp

SUGAR GLAZE:

2 cups of confectioner’s sugar
zest of one lemon
2 tablespoons of milk (more or less depending on the thickness you like)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease regular size muffin tins or popover tins.
2
Using an electric mixer beat all ingredients for 20 minutes without stopping, I recommend using a stand mixer set on level 6.
3
Once the ingredients have been mixed for 20 minutes fill the muffin or popover tins half full (no more than that).
4
Bake on the middle rack for about 45 minutes; if you want the CAVACAS to be on the dry side bake for 1 hour. They will turn a golden color and “popover“ the pans.
