Here’s another Brazilian special recipe for you. Cassava root & hamburger small cakes. You can have these cakes in any occasion or any day you’d like to. It’s simple to make and they’re just like the Brazilian small rain cake recipe and Brazilian small pumpkin cakes recipe.
1 – INGREDIENTS:
2 pounds of mashed cassava root
2 tablespoons of butter or margarine
1 teaspoon of yeast
1 teaspoon of salt
3 cups of flour
1 cup of milk
2 or more cups of vegetable oil (for frying)
2 pounds of hamburger
1 small onion
1 small green pepper
salt (you chose how much)
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 teaspoon of grounded black pepper
2 tablespoons of oil
Peel your cassava root, cut it in small pieces and boil in just water and salt until it gets really soft.
On a regular size bowl add all the ingredients above to make your dough. You can use a mixer or your own hands.
Instead of using a regular frying pan you should use a cooking pan so you can pour the 2 or more cups of oil in it. Once your hamburger is cooked and your dough is done, wait for the hamburger to cool down and spread your dough on a cutting board and cut it round like the size of the bottom of a champagne bottle, add a tablespoon of cooked hamburger in the middle of it, close it and make a little ball, using your own hands.
When you have done all your small cakes it’s time to fry them. When the oil is hot, use a tablespoon to drop it slowly in the pan so the hot oil won’t spill on you.
When the cakes are done they’ll turn brown. Take them out and keep them on a plate with extra sheets of paper towel so the extra oil will be absorbed. When they cool off change them to another plate (with a new paper towel if you’d like)
SPECIAL NOTES FOR YOU:
– The dark ingredients above are for the hamburger, cooked separately.
– Once your cassava root is cooked use a strainer and make sure that you take all the middle strings out of it.
– Sprinkle some flour on the cutting board and your hands so the dough won’t stick on it.
– When working with the dough to make your cakes make sure to sprinkle flour on the cutting board all the time, so it won’t stick on your hands or on the cutting board itself.
Now you have different but delicious small cakes to enjoy and share with your family and friends.
