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.
Custard Donuts – Bola de Berlim
I made a beeline for the custard counter and bought the lot. Bola de Berlim are my favourite.
Sun soaked and custard filled.
Apple Strudel in Berlin
A few days in Berlin turned into quite the culinary adventure. So much wonderful food! This was a delicious find in the Einstein Cafe with layers of pastry and a generous dollop of ice cream.
Homemade Kiwi Curd and Shortbread Tart -Sunday Baking
Of course no Sugar Tourist would be worth their salt if they didn’t also attempt some baking themselves… I do A LOT of international baking over on http://aroundtheworldin80bakes.com
This kiwi Curd tart was inspired by a glut of kiwis and my new favourite programme ‘ You Gotta Eat Here!’ which looks at the best places to eat in Canada. I replaced lemons with kiwis and used basic Shortbread instead of pastry et voila! Quick Kiwi Tart.
