Mini Pao de Lo photo and recipe by:

I found this recipe for Mini Pão-de-ló last week. They look so cute and delicious!

I though this would be a great treat for you to make for Mom on Mother’s day.

Watch the classic song;  “Mãe Querida” at the end of this post!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms! Enjoy!

  • Ingredients:
  • 2 Eggs
  • 10 Egg yolks
  • 12 tbsp of sugar
  • 5 tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp of baking powder


  • Instructions:

Beat the eggs, yolks and sugar for 10 minutes until very light and foamy.

Sift together the flour and baking powder and fold into the batter gently.

Form molds with parchment paper inside coffee mugs into 18 liners and place in muffin trays (you may use cup cake liners instead)

You may find that the amount may vary depending on the size of your muffin tins.

Preheat oven to 428 degrees. Pour batter into molds and cook for 5 minutes.


Portuguese Translation: 



  • 2 ovos
  • 10 gemas de ovo
  • 12 colheres (sopa) de açúcar
  • 5 colheres (sopa) de farinha
  • 1 colher de chá de fermento em pó




Bater as gemas, os ovos e o açúcar até obter um creme muito leve e espumoso (cerca de 10 minutos).

Juntar a farinha com o fermento e peneirar. Envolver delicadamente no creme de ovos.

Com a ajuda de um copo, formar 18 formas de papel almaço.

Verter nelas a massa e levar ao forno pré-aquecido a 220ºC, durante 5 minutos.

Obs.: Coloquei as formas de papel num tabuleiro de queques, para evitar que estas se abrissem durante a cozedura.
