Ovos Moles

A Gastronomic Masterpiece

The beginnings of ovos moles from Aveiro date from the 16th century, long before the city even existed. One legend says it was created by a nun at Mosteiro de Jesus, who was punished by the Mother Superior and forced to fast. Tired of fasting, the nun began mixing egg yolks with sugar. She hid the sweet among the hosts so as not to be found out. When the sweet was finally discovered in the  Convent, someone cried out “It’s a miracle!”, as such a delicious sweet could only be the work of God.
