For Tuesday night dinner I was making a Portuguese themed meal. I absolutely LOVE Cajadas and asked my best friends Mom for the recipe. I couldn’t believe how simple it was!!
2 Cups of milk
2 cups of sugar
1 cup of Flour
3 Tablespoons of Margarine
Lemon Zest from 2 Lemons
Mix all ingredients together, pour into muffins tins and bake at 325 for 45 minutes.
They flour sets at bottom, making a crust, and eggs cook in the middle making a custard. Its magic. The Zest rises to the top and makes an excellent crunch topping.
The key here is you have to grease the pans REALLY well. My best friends mom gave me what’s called “cake release” from Wilton. You can buy at like a Michaels or A.C. Moore. Which you brush into muffin tins with pasty brush. The cajadas slip right out this way. They are SO good especially right out of the oven!!!
