Custard wonderment in Portugal – Donuts, tartes and pastries

I’ve somewhat neglected Sugar Tourist in the last few months. I hope you can forgive me. I’ve been buying a house. It’s almost a year since we visited Portugal now and one of my highlights is always the custard. When I was little we went as  a family to Portugal and bought enormous custard donuts from an old lady wandering the beach. That’s my kind of sandy snack.

I made a beeline for the custard counter and bought the lot. Bola de Berlim are my favourite.

Violet Crumble – Australia

I absolutely adore Violet Crumbles and stock up my suitcase whenever I visit Australia. Think a smooth crunchy (if your English like me) or a smooth cinder toffee ( if you’re Northern like me!) or also known as good old honeymoon coated in chocolate!
