Alfeizerão has one of the most popular “pão-de-ló” (sponge cake) recipes in the country, for its fame goes far beyond the borders of the region where it is baked. Highly appreciated throughout the whole country, this cake has the particularity of not being dry and having a crème filling. Tradition has it that the original recipe belonged to the nuns of Cós Convent and it was taught to local ladies. One day, King D. Carlos paid a visit to Alfeizerão and one of the ladies was asked to bake a sponge cake for the King. The pressure she felt was so intense that the baking procedure was incomplete. However, what at first appeared to be a clumsiness proved to be a great success, deserving the general applause and Royal preference. Alfeizerão sponge cake, as we know it nowdays, was born that day.
