Ingredients

  • CAVACAS BATTER

    ½ cup of milk

    8 large eggs at room temp
  • SUGAR GLAZE:

How to Make Portuguese Cavacas

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.
