The Portuguese Republic celebrates, every year, on June 10, the National Day - the commemoration of the poet Luís de Camoes and the marking of the Day of the Portuguese Communities.
Pão de ló cake (certified name since 1990) is made from eggs, sugar and flour.
In Italy, this dessert is called Pan di Spagna.
In the Anglo-Saxon countries there is also a similar recipe: Sponge cake. The first Portuguese to arrive in Japan in the 16th century brought the recipe with them.
The recipe has evolved over the centuries to become one of the most typical sweets in Japan: Kasut.
We know that its origins are certainly in the area of ​​the Portuguese city of Ovar and that it is certainly a monastic recipe. The first recipe called Pão de ló appears in the cookbook of Infanta D. Maria (1538-1577).
Pão de Ló is consumed throughout the year, but especially during the Easter and Christmas holidays. It was also served to prisoners sentenced to death as a blessing before execution.
It is a soft cake made with very few ingredients: eggs, sugar and flour - it looks like our pandispan :)
The proportion of these ingredients, the way and time of mixing as well as the chosen shape will create diversity and different cakes will come out.

  • 5 eggs at room temperature
  • 200 g of sugar
  • 250 g of sifted flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • grated lemon peel - a good teaspoon

Put the composition in an oiled form (a form with a hole in the middle if you have one).
