Back door has a cap!
This is Mungunza!! Brazilian Mungunza. I love this for breakfast! I prefer served nice and warm. Hominy, milk, some coconut and cinnamon. The recipe will be posted below.
A few years ago a pen pal sent me a huge box full of books and newpapers from Finland when I told him I was trying to learn Finnish. I have not learned well but lately I have thought about getting to brush up a bit since I heard it is good for an aging brain to keep learning things. I have forgotten a lot of the little Finnish I had learned, which is a shame since I love that language.
Here is the recipe for Brazilian Mungunza
2 (15oz) cans of white hominy
1 and 1/2 can of whole milk
3/4 can of sweetened condensed milk
3/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1 cup thick coconut milk ( I used a can)
1 stick of cinnamon
Drain the hominy add the milks, the cinnamon stick, the coconut flakes, cinnamon stick and cloves to the pan and cook for 20 minutes. Stir it occasionally. When done remove the cinnamon stick and the cloves from the pan. Transfer to serving plates or ramekins if serving as dessert. Sprinkle cinnamon on top. Serve warm or chilled.
May your days be full of wonder and new learning opportunities!
