Broa de Fubá (Brazilian Corn Cake)
This is the delicious recipe for Brazilian breakfast style corn cakes, known as Broa de Fubá. A delicious and traditional dish which is loved by people all over, it is very simple to make and unbelievably awesome to eat. It is one of my favorite Brazilian sides and is typically enjoyed with some tea in the morning, but you can honestly enjoy some of these corn cakes at any time. They have a rich and sweet taste like many typically corn cakes but still contain a unique Brazilian flavor. Try it out and tell us what you think!
