6 ingredients

This from "Cuisines of Portuguese Encounters", in which the author gives recipes she had during travelling thru Portugal and its former colonies. This is a Brazilian recipe, named for a famous Brazilian Air Force Commander in the 1940's. He was a chocoholic. Often served at birthday parties and other festivities. I haven't made it yet.
