Pao de Deus

Pao de Deus recipe

2 Jul 2019


Pao de Deus, a Portuguese phrase meaning "bread for God's sake", refers to the tradition of "soulling" that's celebrated throughout Portugal by children up to the age of ten on Dia de Todos-os-Santos (All Saints' Day). Thanks to its intense and delightful flavour of coconut, and the combination of a crunchy and soft texture, the Pao de Deus is an irresistible snack.
