Sweet Cornmeal Cake Brazilian-Style
Very easy and fast to make from scratch and healthy, too. In Brazil, this cake is a favorite along a cup of coffee for breakfast. It is very similar in texture to a cornmeal bread, but only this is a sweet cake instead. Stir your favorite seeds or walnuts into the blended batter before pouring into the pan, if desired.
Recipe Summary test
I use coconut oil but, for neutral flavor, use canola oil.
In Brazil, people usually mix a pinch of fennel seeds into the batter. This is how my mother makes it. I use walnuts instead, just because I add walnuts to everything.
Brown sugar and white sugar can be used interchangeably in this recipe, to taste preference.
You can use 2 cups of regular milk, if you don't like coconut milk, in which case the amount of oil should be increased to 1 full cup.
