History with Tradition
The tradition of sweet crafting, which recipes were born on the Monasteries of Nossa Senhora da Consolação and Nossa Senhora do Carmo, was kept since the extinction of the Religious Orders in the particular sphere of the local domiciles; from it stood out, besides the pão-de-ló (sponge cake), the castanhas doces (sweet chestnuts) and the butter cookies, among many others that this confectionery has the honor to keep in production.
Confeitaria Santa Luzia® remains faithful to the traditional processes of confection and manufacture of the recipes of conventual sweets from its portfolio.
Tradicional Sponge Cake
The history of Pão-de-Ló has origin in a very old monastery recipe, which is available for the public to taste since 1863.
Its rich and unique taste results from a harmonious process of confection, where the dough made of eggs, sugar and almond, takes an egg topping which is then toasted.
Little Cheeses from Heaven
The secret of this product, with a unique flavour, dates back to conventual history.
