Wednesday Recipie!


Natas Do Ceu! Heave’s Cream!

This is definately one of my very favourite portuguese deserts EVER! I actualy don’t know one portuguese person that dosn’t like it! It is very simple to make!

What you will need :

  • pack of Bolacha Maria cbiscuits (about 16 cookies) – tea biscuits are good too 🙂
  • 500ml of heavy cream
  • 6 eggs, separated 
  • 2 tbs water
  • 1/2 cup sugar plus 2 tbsp
  • 1 teaspoon milk

How to:

  • Mash the cookies into fine crumbs and set aside.
  • For the egg sweet topping

  • In a small sauce pan, pour in 2 tablespoons of water and 1/4 cup of the sugar. Stir.
  • Heat the sugar water until it forms a light threadlike syrup but do not boil or allow to become golden.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the yolks with a teaspoon of the milk. Gradually, while still whisking, drizzle in the sugar syrup, incorporating it thoroughly into the yolks. Set aside.
  • For the white mousse

  • Beat the cream with 1/4 cup sugar until peaks form and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites, until foamy. Continue to beat on high speed while gradually incorporating 2 tablespoons of sugar.
  • Beat until soft peaks form.
  • Fold the egg whites into the cream until the egg whites are thoroughly incorporated.
  • To bring it all together 

  • Work in alternate layers starting on the bottom of glass bowl with the cookie crumbs. Pour a layer of cream followed by a layer of cookies until there’s no more left of both then ending with topping it all with the sweetened egg yolks and sprinkle some with crumbs .

Ok, if you try this I really hope you enjoy it as much as we portuguese do 🙂

Love M
