Carob flour is an ideal substitute for cocoa and chocolate powder, since it can be used in the same preparations as these.

Pão de Deus is a traditional bun from Portugal that is consumed on All Saints' Day. Also known as estaladinho or wrinkled, it is a tender bagel, brioche type, with a soft and delicate flavor with subtle citrus notes and covered by a creamy lightly toasted layer of coconut, lemon and sugar.
