Brazilian Cornmeal Cake with Guava Sauce

Cornmeal Cake
Blender Recipes

Hi, everyone! This is Olivia from Olivia’s Cuisine with a delicious and simple cake recipe. The cake is mixed up in the Blendtec, which implies it’s pretty effortless with minimum cleaning. I don’t understand about you, but for me this is a dream come true!

Cornmeal cake is very popular during June festivities (“Festa Junina”) in Brazil. “Festa Junina ”, also known as “festa de Sao Joao” are the annual winter Brazilian Cornmeal Cake celebrations that commemorate Saint Anthony, Saint John, and Saint Peter, and indicates the start of the harvest as well as the end of summer.

Cornmeal Cake Guava

Since June is the month when corn crops are harvested, most Festa Junina dishes (both sweet and savory) are made of corn, for instance, classic Cornmeal Cake (Bolo de Fuba).

I even went and did a guava sauce that I poured around the cake, but that’s totally optional and all you have to do is dust some powdered sugar if you’re not too keen on going overboard with guava-ness!

The cake goes amazing with a cup of coffee and is dense and crumby. You may also have it for breakfast, like I did.

I hope you guys enjoy it! Please follow the link to get more information about best blender reviews.

Ingredients

Five eggs
Four tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup milk
1½ cup coconut milk
2 cups sugar
Pinch of salt
1 cup shredded coconut, unsweetened
1 tablespoon fennel seeds
2 cups fine corn meal
1½ cups all-purpose flour

Guava Sauce (optional)
7 oz solid guava paste, cut into small cubes
1/3 cup water, plus more if needed

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F degrees.
  2. Prepare a bundt cake pan by greasing with butter and dusting with cornmeal.
  3. Pulse a few times to join.
  4. Next, add the corn meal, all purpose flour, and baking powder. Press Legume again until everything is included and smooth. Don’t overmix!
  5. Transfer the batter to your prepared bundt pan.
  6. Pitch the guava paste blocks into a little bit of flour (to prohibit them from sinking to the bottom of the cake) and add to the batter.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 50 to 60 minutes until your whole house smells amazing and also a toothpick inserted in the cake comes out clean.
  8. Subsequently, loosen the sides with a little sharp knife and place on a cake stand or serving dish.
    Making the sauce

Add the guava paste and water to a little saucepan and cook on medium low heat until the guava paste has dissolved and also the sauce has thickened. It’s possible for you to add more water if required.
