Hi tapas lovers.

Maria and myself just came back from walking el Camino de Santiago (primitivo route). During such an amazing trip we made very special friends and shared plenty of Tartas de Santiago. To them, our new “Familia” and to all the Peregrinos of the world, we want to dedicate this post and this recipe, the authentic stuff. From Spain with love.

Happy Easter everyone. Today we prepared a Spanish Easter classic recipe:  Torrijas, also called “Torradetes de Santa Teresa” in Catalonia. Torrijas are very similar to the French toast, but with the Spanish way of cooking.

This is one of my childhood favorites and it’s an easy and fun one to prepare. It’s meant to be a dessert but I’ll ahve them fro breakfast. So, still with the cinnamon smell at home, this is how to prepare them!
