By Thiago Castanho and Luciana Bianchi


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/ 350°F/gas 4. Grease a loaf tin and dust with sifted polenta meal.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the egg whites until frothy using an electric hand mixer. Gradually add the sugar and continue whisking until firm peaks form. Set aside.
  3. Sift together the flour, baking powder and fubá or polenta. Set aside.
  4. Beat together the butter and egg yolks until light and fluffy. Stir in the milk, then add the dry ingredients and beat until smooth.
  5. Fold the whisked egg whites into the batter using slow movements until well incorporated.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared tin and bake for about 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean.


The original cake is made with fubá, a very fine cornmeal available at Brazilian shops. If you are using polenta or other cornmeal instead, remember the finer the texture, the better.
