Delicious Yellow Corn Coffee Cake

Well, here is the truth: I am just 13 weeks pregnant, but I look like I am going to have a baby any time ant here is why.

Yellow Corn Coffee Cake, is an every day cake at our table in Brazil. Every day, around 4pm is what we call coffee time in Brazil, but it is not just about coffee. It is about getting together, taking a break, talking, and of course having a coffee with some cake, hot French bread with butter, cheese bread ( I promise to tell you all about it, it is delicious!!)…… Like I said, it starts around 4 pm and sometimes it goes on and on and on.  At my grandmother house every day at 4pm the table will be ready. We never know who is coming and how many are coming for the coffee, and that is the fun of it, but the table is always ready and delicious. I love when we are sitting on the table and the bell rings, someone else came to join us for the coffee, more talking, more laugh, and more good time.

So, I like this tradition and I try to continue it here with my friends and sometimes just me, Lucas and my husband. Actually, next week I will have some friends over for a coffee here in my house and I will try to take some pictures of it.

Here is the recipe of the Traditional Yellow Corn Coffee Cake
4 eggs
3/4 cups oil
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1 cup yellow corn
1 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 tbsp salt
1 tbsp of baking powder
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Butter one 8 inch round cake pan.
Mix everything together with a mixer or blender and bake it for 35 min at 350 degree for a soft cake( that is the best for my taste) or for 45 min if you like it well done. 

Enjoy it!!!!
