Dreams/Sonhos is a community recipe submitted by catarina m and has not been tested by so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Bring water, butter and salt to a boil in a 2 quart saucepan. When the butter is melted, reduce the heat and dump the flour all at once into the pot.
  • Using a wooden spoon, beat quickly and thoroughly until the dough leaves the sides of the pan.
  • Remove the pan from heat and allow dough to cool to almost room temp. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well so the batter is smooth after each egg is added.
  • Deep fry rounded teaspoonfuls or walnut-sized balls until golden, making sure the centre is cooked.
  • Drain on paper towels then dip in cinnamon/sugar mixture.
  • Tell us what you think

    • We serve the around Xmas time, I usually like to make a syrup made up of sugar water lemon peel and 2 cinimon sticks, let it boil till it looks like a nice syrup, use the quantity of water and sugar you like. Drizzle a little over the Sonhos, and set the rest aside in a serving bolw.
