This desert is very typical in Brazil, specially in parties like Christmas, birthdays, when people make some lunch together with their families. It is a very simple recipe but very delicious.
My mom used to cook this a lot when I was a kid and teenager. I learnt to cook it in March, 2020. Because of Covid, I started to work from home and had more time to cook and I made a lot experimentation in the kitchen. After that, I could cook it again in Germany for some German friends.
