Ingredients

CAVACAS BATTER

2 cups of flour
1 cup of oil
½ cup of milk

SUGAR GLAZE:

2 cups of confectioner’s sugar

How to Make Portuguese Cavacas

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.
