SOUTH PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Owner Mardhory Santos-Cepeda bakes the sweet and savory specialties of her home country at Kouklet Brazilian Bakehouse.
Kouklet is known for the bolo de rolo, a Brazilian specialty that takes a day to make.
With three thin layers of butter cake, a roll is made around three layers of filling.
The traditional filling is guava, but other flavors are available.
Other items include the empadas - pastry tarts filled with beef, typically eaten for breakfast in Brazil - and tapioca-based cheese breads. The specialty cake rolls can also be shipped nationwide.
