Aveiro ovos moles

Ovos Moles

To visit Aveiro without tasting ovos moles would be a sin. It is a typical pastry of the area and was first created in the nunneries and convents of Aveiro and its surrounds. 

Created by mixing egg yolks and sugar, in an indulgent manner, it is prepared according to ancient tradition. Though the convents are no longer the producers, the recipe has since been passed on, from generation to generation, and has been kept alive until today in this manner. 

Let this sweet temptation delight your taste buds in one of the oldest, and most famous shops creating oves moles, Confeitaria Peixinho or one of the nearby craft sweet shops.
