This recipe was sent to me by my Tia Celi. Tia Celi is a very dear friend of my mother's (actually of my entire family). She's not related through family, but she just as well might be as she is very, very dear to all of us in the family. I love going out in Rio with her! She is married to another dear friend, who has the luck of eating some of the most delicious dishes she always prepares. She loves to cook, and does so very well. I don't know how many times she and Jose Augusto, her husband, have come over to our apartment in Rio, either when we arrive or when we leave, with a complete feast of the most delicious dishes. Her carne seca com abobora, a typical Brazilian dish of dried meat, a sort of pumpkin puree, shredded collard greens, rice and tutu de feijao preto (a sort of mashed black bean dish, but this is really too simple a description) is fantastic. She taught my mother how to make these dishes, but nothing matches the ones made by her.

She sent a note along with this recipe that this Bolo de Fuba is made in every region in Brazil.

It's funny, because Brazil is unlike some of the other Latin American countries like Mexico, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Chile, which have numerous dishes with corn. Yet we do have some traditional corn dishes, like this one.
