  • About

Fatias douradas or fried bread (also called rabanadas) seems to have spread across Portugal from the northern Minho region. This dessert is customarily served at Christmas Eve, and in the Azores it is enjoyed as a Carnival specialty. Similar to French toast, this treat consists of bread bathed in milk and egg, fried, and dipped in syrup or honey, or sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar.
