Preparation Time:
1 hour and 20 minutes



• 2 teacups of cornmeal
• 1½ of manioc starch
• ¾ teacup of sugar
• 3½ teacups of milk
• 95 ml of corn oil
• 4 eggs
• 1 tablespoon of baking powder
• Cornmeal, for sprinkling
• 1 coffee spoon of salt


Combine the cornmeal, manioc starch, and sugar.
Put the milk and oil in a pot and cook over heat.
When it begins to boil, turn down the heat and pour it on the dry mixture.
Stir continuously, until it no longer sticks to the bottom of the pot.
Remove from the pot and set aside.
When the dough has cooled, put in the eggs, one by one, add the baking powder and salt and knead, with your hands, until the dough is smooth.
Grab a mug with a round bottom and put in some cornmeal, for sprinkling.
Take a spoonful of dough and put it in the mug, rotating the mug to make the dough round.
Bake in a baking tray greased with butter and cornmeal.
