Brazilian Sonho Recipe
Sonho is a popular sweet/dessert in Brazil, that originated in Portugal. It is very similar to the traditional German pastry Berliner. The biggest difference between these two sweets/desserts is the filling: in Brazil, we use confectioner’s cream and in Germany, marmalade or jam.
Let’s learn how to make it!
2 cups milk
3 tablespoons cornstarch
4 egg yolks
½ cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl, cover with a towel and let it rise for 20 minutes.
Place the dough on top of a floured board. Using a medium round cookie or biscuit cutter, cut into rounds and place them on a baking sheet dusted with flour. Cover with a kitchen towel and let it rise again until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
Heat a pot of oil, over medium heat and fry the Sonhos until golden brown and set them on top of paper towels to absorb the extra grease.
Cut them in half and fill with the cream.
Mix all the ingredients, except the vanilla extract, in a saucepan and cook, over medium heat, for about five to ten minutes.
Add the vanilla extract and turn the heat off. Let it cool before filling the Sonhos.
