  • When we saw images of this dessert online we couldn't possibly

  • ignore it. It's our Pavê de biscoito!

  • Oi! What was that? That's a traditional Brazilian greeting. It means Hi. Well...

  • hello. This dessert has... erm... where do I go with that?

  • Basically, an amazing dessert that has lots of layers. And we're going to start off with the

  • creamy layer that goes in the middle.

  • Yeah! Okay, so, what we need is some sugar adding to a bowl

  • with softened butter. Now again you need all the accurate weights and

  • measures of these ingredients. But you can get those in the description box down below.

  • You sure can! Right, if you blend those up. Basically, we're looking for something with lots of air in it.

  • The softer the butter is, the easier.

  • I mean in England you literally have to put it in a microwave, but not in the Amazonian rainforest. Since we're here

  • in Brazil,

  • it's fine. Right into our butter and sugar mixture a drop of vanilla extract

  • and then we add in our egg yolks one at a time

  • so that it doesn't split. And then the final ingredient into that mixture

  • is a tablespoon of cocoa powder. So that's going in as well.

  • And into this bowl, 250ml

  • of double cream. If you can whisk that up... Even with my chocolatey ends?

  • Even with your chocolatey ends! That's absolutely fine, it's all going to be mixed together in a minute anyway.

  • That'll do probably. That alright? Yep. At which point, cream

  • goes into our chocolatey mixture and the whole thing gets whisked together.

  • And as soon as that's come together into one homogenous mixture,

  • we can stop. And that's it, job done.

  • This mixture we can put to one side for the moment and we can start up our layering process.

  • The key to this is a loose-bottomed tin. Yeah, that is vital! Now,

  • these biscuits... rich tea biscuits. Rich tea biscuits from the heart of

  • Brazil. (Obviously) Bear with me! Traditionally they would use biscuits

  • that are called Maria biscuits. Yep.

  • Erm, very very similar to this biscuit. Which is why we are using these here in

  • London. You know an interesting thing about Marie biscuits as well don't you?

  • Well, so I've been told. Or so I read... The Maria biscuit, the one that is traditionally used in this

  • traditional Brazilian dish

  • actually originated in London too. Ah, so there you go. What a lovely

  • transatlantic crossover. But now, it is an integral part this delicious dessert

  • and has become very Brazilian. That is just a way of me saying if we muck this up

  • don't have a go! We're doing our best. And while you do all that, which is quite fiddly

  • I'm going to talk about the top layer of our dessert which is

  • fundamental and it's peanuts. Now basically take your peanuts

  • just crack them open and it's the red nuts inside

  • you want. It takes quite a while, so what I've done

  • is do a few before. These then go on to a tray exactly as they are and put that into an

  • oven at

  • about 160 degrees Celsius for 10-15 minutes.

  • Shake them occasionally and they'll just roast off. Once they're roasted,

  • they come out and they look like this. Now look at that, darker in color

  • at this point there's a really easy way of getting rid of the husks. Just place them into a clean

  • tea towel.

  • This is fiddly. Cover them up. It is a bit, that's why I gave it to you! And then just rub

  • all these peanuts together and all the husks just kind of falls apart. You just

  • literally knocked down my wall.

  • Stop moaning. I'll give you a hand. What I'm going to do is spoon some of this in

  • and it'll make your life a lot easier. There we go, there's layer number one

  • at which point you put another layer of biscuit on top. If you can do that.

  • look at his peanuts now. You can see they have all kind of fallen from their shell.

  • They're naked! Just pass the nuts from hand to hand and kind of all the husk

  • falls off. Now in case you hadn't noticed we're not Brazilian

  • ourselves. Sorted eats Brazil is all about us

  • trying our hand at some classic Brazilian dishes that

  • you requested we do. We want to know where we've gone horribly wrong,

  • when we've gone right Basically, we just really want to be Brazilian.

  • What would you do differently to any of these dishes, whether you're Brazilian or not.

  • We want to know your take on it. Because this is definitely ours. There is our second layer of chocolate

  • filling

  • and now for a third layer of biscuit. And while you do that

  • I'm going to blend up some of our nuts. You still want quite a coarse crumb, so don't go too far.

  • And then the final layer to this concoction

  • is caramel. It's quite thick so all I'm going to do is put it into a bowl

  • just to loosen it up a little bit. We are asked you what we should make

  • and as soon as we looked up this dish, we said "that looks unbelievable."

  • I don't care what's in it... it could have elephant tusk in it.

  • It doesn't have elephant task in it. It has peanuts, but it's still amazing!

  • And now all of this can go over the top

  • in a scattering. Actually, as I was researching this dish... some people serve

  • it with pineapple or

  • coconut. We're just leaving it aren't we? I think there's enough going on there already.

  • Roasted

  • peanut, caramel, chocolate. I kind of consider it a layered dessert a bit like

  • the Italians have tiramisu with sponge fingers. Or we have trifle in the UK.

  • This is the Brazilian version. Pavê. It's delicious, unfortunately we can't eat it just yet.

  • It needs to set up in the fridge for four hours, or better still

  • overnight. Overnight? Yes.

  • Now this has set up overnight which means we should now be up to release it.

  • There we go. Remember the biscuits facing out so we get a nice exterior.

  • Slide it onto our board and can get a nice big slice out of this.

  • There it is, you can see all the gorgeous layers. Biscuit,

  • chocolate, caramel, peanuts. We're going to keep ours very simple,

  • maybe just a drizzle of cream. But for now, a delicious Brazilian dessert

  • We'd love to know if you'd do it any differently so please do tell us below.

  • Sorted!

  • That is delicious. Proper layers, pretty much nailed it. We may not have got this

  • completely accurate but this version tastes

  • very nice! I'm chuffed with that!
