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.
