Portugal is well known for Orange Cake especially the Orange Cake made with Olive Oil.  While my son lived in Portugal he had this cake many times, they even served it in little cafés for breakfast.


Jason also learned to cook some great food while he was there and picked up some amazing authentic recipes, he made his mama proud!
