The caco cake is a wheat bread typical of the region of Madeira that can be found on both the island of Madeira and on the island of Porto Santo.

It is consumed as input, accompaniment or as main delicacy.

It can be consumed hot, such as a meal entree, barred with garlic butter to melt, or even as main delicacy.

It is common to be used in the making of sandwiches based on the cake of the caco and the most varied fillings, such as steaks (nail in the cake of the caco), ham, swordfish, octopus, just to name a few.


1 kg of flour

Peel the potatoes, bring to boil in water and reduce to puree.

Put the flour on a clean surface, open a hole in the middle and place the sweet potatoes and baking powder.

Let the dough ferment for 2 to 3 hours.

Then bake the cacao cake on a hot plate, on both sides.

It can be served with garlic butter, garlic butter and finely chopped parsley.
