Cornmeal Cake with Thermomix: Bolo de Fubá Brazilian Recipe

Today I'm recommending you this internationally perfumed cake: the Cornmeal Cake :-)

Even if this recipe has been sent by Rosanna from Treviso, I've recently found out that it is a typical Brazilian Cake, where it is called Bolo de Fubá.

It is like a polenta cake without milk, perfect for those who are milk intolerant. In Brazil it is prepared during a religious celebration of European tradition: the Festa Junina ( The feast is mainly celebrated in June on the eves of the Catholic solemnities of Saint Anthony, Saint John the Baptist, and Saint Peter around all the country.

The Cornmeal Cake is very tasty, light and fragrant because it involves very good ingredients such as cornmeal. Its preparation is very very easy thanks to Thermomix and it is perfect to serve for your children' breakfast and snacks.

If you are lactose intolerant and you are looking for other milk-free sweet recipes, I suggest you try the Milk-Free Sweet Roll or the Dairy, Gluten and Sugar Free Biscuits. Try then and let me know. ;-)
