Bolo Rei is a traditional Portuguese cake that is usually eaten around Christmas, from December 25 until the Dia de Reis (literally “Kings’ Day”), on 6 January.
It is a staple holiday dessert in any Portuguese home that we would like to share with you.
Expect a soft, white dough, with raisins, various nuts and crystallized fruit. Also included is the characteristic dried fava bean, and tradition dictates that whoever finds the fava has to pay for the Bolo-rei next year.
Perfect for a different kind of Christmas centrepiece.
