I haven't heard about broas in a long time but they were a favorite of my grandmother and they're popular in Minas Gerais where my grandmother and mom are from. In Brazil I think they make them less dark, there is more of a corn flavor to them and we always had them warm with butter and cafe com leite. I remember you also had to eat them very fresh because when they get stale they turn rock hard.

Random fact, you can insult someone in Brazil by calling them a 'cara de broa' which means they have 'a face like a broa'. NO idea how this came about haha.

That's really funny JS, thanks for sharing! We ended up buying Broa de Avintes when we self catered for dinner....I really like that bread.
