Queijadinha de Laranja (Orange Coconut Muffins) is a five-ingredient, quick, gluten-free gooey (not fluffy) muffin that only requires mixing the ingredients together at one time by hand and then baking. It is super moist and tasty!
1. STORAGE: Store queijadinhas in an airtight container or ziploc bag at room temperature. Consume within 2-3 days.
2. Queijadinha is a kind of baked goodie that originated in Portugal, and is popular in Brazil. There are many types of "queijadinhas", but the traditional one is prepared with grated coconut, cheese, sweetened condensed milk, sugar, butter, and egg yolks. As you can see, my type doesn't take cheese, butter, and sugar!
3. If you would like to add 1 or 2 tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese to our recipe, go ahead. It will make our queijadinha de laranja a bit less sweet. As for me, I prefer mine as it is!
