These little ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡น spirals of decadence are called tortas and mine are filled with creme de ovos ๐Ÿฅš (similar to pastry cream but made with egg yolks, corn starch and a sugar syrup). Some hints of lemon ๐Ÿ‹ and cinnamon complete the flavors but the real triumph is the sponge. Itโ€™s a type of pรฃo de lรณ - a favorite Portuguese cake ๐Ÿฐ Instead of beating whole eggs with sugar until ribbon ๐ŸŽ€ stage this version separates the whites and yolks. The whites are beat into a meringue and the yolks are beat until ribbon ๐ŸŽ€ stage. Both are folded ๐Ÿฅ„together with the flour and the result is a marshmallow like texture when baked! #torta

Yesterday I had the sweetest day with family. My cousin taught me some of her traditional ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡น recipes. She asked me to make arroz doce (๐Ÿš๐Ÿฎ) a definite favorite of Portuguese families. I am always so thankful to have the opportunity to connect and bond with family in the kitchen ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ
