Bolo do caco is a flat, circular bread, shaped like a cake and thus called bolo (Portuguese for ‘cake’). It is traditionally cooked on a caco, a flat basalt stone slab. The bread is usually served with garlic butter, or eaten as a sandwich with octopus, or kebabs. We had this as a accompaniment to our meals at several restaurants during our stay in Madeira.
Weather as a sandwich or just doused with garlic butter it was delicious. A crunchy outside with a leavened soft interior.
