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)

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease regular size muffin tins or popover tins.

2Using an electric mixer beat all ingredients for 20 minutes without stopping, I recommend using a stand mixer set on level 6.

3Once the ingredients have been mixed for 20 minutes fill the muffin or popover tins half full (no more than that).

4Bake 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.

5While they are still warm dip in the sugar glaze or drizzle glaze over them.
