This is my mother-in-law's recipe from when she lived in Brazil for 6 years. It may look like a little pancake, but it is a sweet treat. Serve broas when then have cooled completely.

These did not come out like pancakes. They were as thin or thinner than a crepes. So I took the remaining batter) added 1/2 tsp baking powder and poured them into greased ramekins. I had enough batter for 2 ramekins and I baked them at 350 degrees for 18 minutes. They were a lot better than the pancake. Read More

These were yummy sweet corn bread pancakes. We served with chicken wings which seems like a strange choice but was pretty good. Used just half of the recipe but followed exactly...oh but halved the amount of sugar. Read More
