Dear SOS: While vacationing in Sunriver, Ore., we ate breakfast at a Portuguese restaurant named Cafe Sintra. They served a most delicious muffin called bom dia. Do you think you could get the recipe?
Dear Kim: Manuel Dos Santos, owner of the Cafe Sintra, modified his wife Toni’s recipe for a carrot muffin by adding coconut, apple and walnuts.
Customers love it with their morning coffee, so they named it bom dia, or “good morning” in Portuguese. It’s a satisfying breakfast treat.
