Traditional Sweets from Around the World

Although people might assume that making and eating cookies is a universal custom around the world, the reality is that many people prepare and enjoy a wide variety of sweets with unique ingredients. Therefore, if you invited me into your home for dinner and wanted to offer me a traditional sweet from your country, what would it be and what ingredients are used to prepare it? Share your culture with us!

Well, I do not specialise in food and the language describing the sweets that we consume in my homeland might be quite problematic and technical to translate into English. Let's say that if if I invited you for dinner, I would have given you a slice of what we call 'The King's Cake' ('Bolo reio' in Portuguese). I don't know if my translation into English is correct but anyway, 'bolo' in Portuguese means 'cake' in English, and 'reio' means 'king'. It's a cake containing bits of dried fruits and bits of sugar. It's delicious but make sure you take care of your teeth if you do not want to have tooth decay or tooth cavity.

Hello. In my city is commom and tasteful dessert, called Milk Chesse. The ingredients are 1 litter of milk, 12 eggs, sugar ( i´m not sure how much) and some raisins. First , you must put milk ,eggs and sugar in a mixer, and mix then. This is baked about 1 hour. You must wait until it ´s cool, and then put it in the refrigerator.

Hello.
I love chocolat chips cookies, and I enjoyed a lot listening to the conversation, I could understand everything.
Well, I am from Portugal (West Europe)and here we have one dessert/pastry that we love so much, it's the Custard Tart (Pastel de Nata) and it's a Portuguese egg tart pastry. To bake this pastry you got to have these ingredients; cream, sugar, gems, flour, pastry and eggs.

Hi everybody.
I come from Viet Nam.In my country,Trung cake is the most farmous. When I was young, My grandfather and I always caked them for Tet holiday. So To day, I should tell you how Trung cake bake. The ingredients are follow for 10 pieces Trung cakes
01 kg of rice
0,2kg of bean
0,4 kg of pork meat
pich of salt, pepper
50 leaves of banana ( in my country, we use Rong leaves but maybe your countries have not, you can use leaves of banana instead)
You have to put rice and bean on water during two hours. Then, you use some leaves of banana to cover rice, bean, pork meat. You make them square for one cake. When you finish, you don't forget to put them in boiling water about 12 hours.
It is delicious. If you don't believe, you will try to do.
Thank you!
