This Brazilian breakfast treat is usually served around Christmastime. Being soaked overnight, it makes for a festive holiday brunch item. Cooking the toast long enough for the outside to get crispy still leaves it with a custard-like interior that melts in the mouth. This recipe comes from Chow, by Aïda Mollenkamp. I haven't tried this recipe yet, but I may try it with less oil on a griddle, and although a topping is not mentioned in the recipe, I might use chocolate syrup and whipped cream. Pretty rich, but it is holiday fare after all. nt (not tried)
