Typical bread from the Madeira

Bolo do Caco

The Bolo do Caco is a typical bread from the Madeira region that can be found both on the Island of Madeira and on the Island of Porto Santo.

It is a flat, round bread made with sweet potato, flour, salt, sugar, and yeast. The dough is then baked on a flat stone, which gives it a distinctive texture and flavor. Bolo de Caco is a staple food in Madeira and is often served as an accompaniment to meals, particularly with garlic butter or cheese. It can also be used as a sandwich bread, with fillings such as tuna, ham, or cheese.

In recent years, Bolo de Caco has become popular in other parts of Portugal and in other countries as well.
