Traditional Brazil Desserts


As it happens with its main dishes, Brazil also has an important variety of desserts. Most of the most traditional Brazilian desserts are popular in most regions of the country, while a few others are more typical of a specific area of Brazil. Fruits (Brazil has a great variety of fruits) are often combined with desserts or eaten as desserts alone as well.

Bolos are among the most popular desserts in Brazil. Bolos are similar to cakes and can be found in a wide variety of flavors and with many different fillings. Some of the most popular ones are: bolo prestigio (made with chocolate, milk cream, and coconut), bolo de maracuja (made with passion fruit), bolo de laranja (made with orange), bolo de banana, and bolo de cenoura (made with carrots, chocolate, and butter).
