Olhão Easter cake

João Mendes & Rita

Olhão's Easter cake, also called sheet Easter cake, is known for its layered composition, covered with sugar, butter and cinnamon, which creates caramelized leaves of singular appearance. The caramel dries but does not harden and the dough remains moist even over time.
Of all the Easter cakes in the many regions of Portugal, Olhão’s is certainly one of the sweetest and most aromatic.
João Mendes & Rita is a family business that has been producing the Olhão Easter cake for more than 40 years.
