Un recuerdo de las torrijas durante Semana Santa cuando tenía 13 años, fue mi primera visita a Sevilla 🙂 (A memory of ‘torrijas’ during Holy Week when I was 13, it was my first visit to Seville).
This dessert became popular in the Middle Ages when it was commonly eaten during Lent and is today made during Easter celebrations. I learnt how to make these delicious treats whilst staying with my Spanish friend: huevos, pan, vino blanco, aceite de oliva, miel (eggs, bread, white wine, olive oil, honey) – a light, eggy bread gently fried in olive oil drenched in honey ¡Ay que rico!
