A taste of sunshine on the tongue


The latest edition of Alastair Sawday´s Special Places to Stay Portugal recently landed on our doormat. The Casa Rosada entry refers to the Orange Olive Oil cake (Bolo de laranja) that I serve our guests for breakfast. The recipe came to me via David Leite´s "New Portuguese Table." When David lived in Lisbon, a few times a week he would trudge up the hill from his apartment and pop into Papas  for breakfast. It seats a mere 8 people and that includes two at the counter. This delicious cake is dense, moist and deeply flavoured. It "tastes like sunshine on the tongue" says Sawdays.
The recipe.
