Easter Sweets

Easter would not be the same without almonds and chocolate eggs. Still in Braga, my hometown, we don’t stop here… we have sweets to please all tastes!!

The best known are the Pão-de-ló and Folar but we also eat some typical biscuits, that although being available all year, they are mainly consumed during this period.

Pão-de-ló (Sponge Cake):

Folar (sweet bread baked with whole eggs):

And at last Doce Coberto:

After much sweetness were tempted to try? 🙂
