Super easy to make, and these won't last long. Try substituting almond or lemon extract for the vanilla. Or top them with flaked coconut or fresh fruit before baking!

These are absolutely delicious!! I lived in Portugal for a little over a year and ate them in about 1000 different cafes, and this recipe is so authentic! Just FYI, they are supposed to fall a bit in the middle - that is what makes them so perfect for different toppings. They are best on the day made, so you probably want to avoid making them in advance for anything. Read More

These 'lil things are pretty good. I made them with peaches...I don't think I would have liked it too well without the fruit. They taste much like a custard. I like them better cold than hot but it's good either way. Read More

I just can't understand the negative reviews for these. I used a nonstick muffin pan to make them and had no problems with sticking. I also tried almond extract instead of vanilla. I can't stop eating them...delicious!! Read More

I was out of sugar at home so I used the new Splenda blend baking sugar (1 cup) instead of 2 cup of sugar fat free milk and added about 1/2 tsp of lime juice. It turned out awsome very crispy on the outside and custard texture on the inside. Read More

All I can say is WOW! what an easy recipe with little clean-up! I brought these to work without even trying them first I had fresh strawberries in the fridge and also carmel sauce on hand I did half and half and can't tell you which one I liked better! I'm not sure if it will work but I'm going to try using my smaller muffin tins for more of a bite-sized treat! One things for sure be generous when greasy the tins! Read More

OH MY GOD. I love these. Whenever Scotty makes em for us here at the office I just can't help myself... I like mine served warm with fresh sliced strwberries on top. Seriously deeeeelicious! Note: Be careful not to overcook em. WARNING: These are not really "cakes"... more like a crispy shelled baked custard. Read More

Excellent. I've tried a much more difficult version of queijadas and it came out awful. This one is super super easy and is absolutely delicious. I used 1% milk and it was yummy. I also decreased the sugar by 1/4 cup and didn't miss it. Added some shredded coconut and voila...a quick dessert for any night of the week. Read More

My son had to make a Portuguese dish for school and of course he didn't tell me until the last minute. We found this recipe with ingredients we already had and they turned out great. Used less sugar as other reviewers suggested and sprinkled coconut on before baking. That was last night and I just made them again for breakfast. Kids loved them. Read More
