Brazilian Rain Cakes with Whole Wheat Flour

Last week Little Joe went to a soccer camp with a World Cup theme.  On Friday they were supposed to bring a food from the country of the team they were on.  Little Joe was on Team Brazil.  So after a quick internet search of "easy Brazillian recipes" we landed on these Brazilian Rain Cakes, or Bolinhos de Chuva.  We, of course, put our own whole-wheat-twist on these Rain Cakes. 

These were an absolute hit with the boys.  I had to hide them so there'd be enough left to take to camp the next day.  They were devoured so quickly that this was the only photo I had time to get before I had to hide them.  The Rain Cakes are basically little dumplings rolled in sugar and cinnamon.  Simple and quick to make.
