Baba de camelo is a light and airy mousse made with dulce de leche. It is more lightly set than other mousses, and can be enjoyed as a traditional mousse dessert, or eaten straight from the freezer, just like ice-cream! This dessert is a very popular dessert in Portugal, found in tascas (typical Portuguese restaurants) across the country. When we lived in Portugal, this was one of our favourites, and eating it now always reminds us of eating out in our local neighbourhood.
Preparation: Defrost in refrigerator overnight if eaten as a mousse Or can also be eaten frozen if preferred, defrost not necessary.
😜 This dessert is a real surprise that will please any sweet tooth.
Ingredients: Condensed milk, Eggs Contains: Milk and Milk Products, Eggs
Hi, I'm Elicia!
I’m an assistant principal at a Sydney CBD school, and in my spare time I cook traditional Portuguese desserts. I met my husband living in Portugal and bonded with his family over food as his Grandmother taught me how to make amazing Portuguese desserts. I make them now as a way of staying connected with her and the rest of our family overseas, and I add in my own style and flavours to make them truly unique.
