Our friend Ketty Gonzaga Pereira sent us this recipe! Thanks Ketty! I sometimes add more cheese to it but there's no need!  It's basically perfect and very fulfilling!  We have made it quite a few times in the past 2 months ever since she told us about it.  I grew up not liking this kind of cake or custard but the creaminess of it is out of this world!   YOU HAVE TO TRY IT!!!  It's a guaranteed family pleaser!  It's sweet and can be had as a snack in the afternoon or late night!  I will probably bake this for a long time to come!  I suggest using a very fine corn flour!  We buy ours at Brazilian grocery stores around town.  It's called "fubá".
