Brigadeiro Cake

Yesterday it was Labor Day and one of the national holidays that we have not lost, which resulted in a day spent in a more relaxed way, baking the perfect cake to share at tea time and that although decadently appetizing and an imminent danger to serve during the months preceding the beach, it could not have tasted any better! Now try it and tell me if this is not a tasty sin?!


  • 2 tea cups flour
  • 2 tea cups sugar
  • 1/2 tea cup sunflower oil
  • 1 soup spoon yeast
  • 4 eggs room temperature
  • 1 tea cup of milk
  • 1 tea cup chocolate powder
  • 1 can of condensed milk
  • 4 soup spoons of chocolate powder
  • 1 spoon of unsalted butter

Pre-heat the oven 190ºC/ 4 gas

In a bowl put the flour and yeast together and mix with a wooden spoon. Separate the yolks from the egg whites. Beat the yolks with the 2 tea cups of sugar and a cup of sunflower oil and the four egg whites with 4 spoons of sugar, separatedly. Add the chocolate powder to the yolks and sugar combination and beat. Then add this to the dry ingredients and beat for about 4 minutes.Add the milk slowly. Join in the whisked egg whites and with the help of a wooden spoon mix gently. Put the dough in a cake mould lightly greased with butter and sprinkled with flour. Put it in the oven for about 35 minutes(do the toothpick test).
For the cover, in a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine cocoa, butter and condensed milk. Cook, stirring, until thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, let rest for 2 minutes and pour over the cake.

Ontem foi Dia do Trabalhador e um dos feriados nacionais que não perdemos, o que se traduziu num dia passado de forma mais relaxada, na confeção de um bolo perfeito para partilhar ao lanche que embora decadentemente apetitoso e um perigo iminente para servir durante os meses que antecedem a praia, não poderia ter sabido melhor! Ora experimentem e digam-me lá se não é um pecado saboroso?!

  • 2 chávenas de chá de farinha
  • 2 chávenas de chá de açúcar
  • 1/2 chávena de chá de óleo de girassol
  • 1 colher de sopa de fermento
  • 4 ovos à temperatura ambiente
  • 1 chávena de chá de leite
  • 1 chávena de chá de chocolate em pó
  • 1 lata de leite condensado
  • 4 colheres de sopa de chocolate em pó
  • 1 colher de sopa de manteiga sem sal

Pré-aqueça o forno 190 º C / gás 4

Numa tigela coloque a farinha e o fermento e misture com uma colher de pau. Separe as gemas das claras de ovos. Bata as gemas com as 2 chávenas de chá de açúcar e uma chávena de óleo de girassol e as quatro claras em castelo com 4 colheres de açúcar, separadamente. Adicione o chocolate em pó à combinação de gemas e açúcar e bata. De seguida, adicione os ingredientes secos e bata  cerca de 4 minutes. Junte o leite lentamente. Junte as claras batidas em castelo e, com a ajuda de uma colher de pau, misture delicadamente. Coloque a massa numa forma de bolo levemente untada com manteiga e polvilhada com farinha. Coloque-a no forno  cerca de 35 minutos (faça o teste do palito).
Para a cobertura, numa panela média em lume médio, junte o cacau, a manteiga e o leite condensado. Cozinhe, mexendo sempre, até engrossar, durante cerca de 10 minutos. Retire do lume, deixe arrefecer dois minutos e despeje sobre o bolo.
