Torrijas Some say that Torrijas are just “Spanish-style French Toast” made with cinnamon and honey. Actually,Torrijas can be made a variety of different ways by modifying the ingredient list. Some people use sweet red wine, others use milk, and some add different liquors. Torrijas are usually topped with cinnamon and sugar, but some are covered in honey. Ingredients: • 1 large loaf of day-old bread • 1 cinnamon stick • 1 liter of milk (whole, skim, or 2%, your choice) • 5 or 6 large soup-spoons of sugar • 4 eggs • extra virgin olive oil for frying • a mix of sugar and cinnamon • 1 lemon rind from half a lemon


For 3 or 4 minutes, boil the milk, along with the sugar, the cinnamon stick, and the lemon rind. (orange rind can be substituted for the lemon rind). Afterwards, let the milk cool to room temperature. Cut the day-old bread, with a serrated knife, in slices about 1-inch thick. Soak both sides of the slices in the milk. Make sure that both sides soak up the milk but not to the point of saturation because they will then fall apart. Beat the four eggs and heat a generous quantity of olive oil in a large frying pan. When the bread slices are soft, dip both sides in the egg mixture and fry them in the heated oil. You can test the temperature of the olive oil by dropping a bit of the egg mixture in the oil. If it fries the egg, then the temperature is ready to receive the torrijas. Fry two-by-two so that the oil does not cool. The temperature can be adjusted if there is smoke or if the torrijas look over-fried. Fry each side for a few minutes, until golden brown and place on a plate with paper towels to absorb the excess oil.Then

transfer the torrijas to the plate containing the mixed cinnamon and sugar, covering both sides. After all of the torrijas have gone through this process all that is left is to place them on a pan, let them cool and they are ready to eat. The following are some popular variations of the recipe: Prepare a glaze to pour over the cooked torrijas, by boiling a cup of water that is half-full of sugar and add a dash of lemon juice. Heat for 15 minutes, over a medium flame, stirring continuously. Another glaze: The same as above but substitute honey for the sugar. Another glaze: substitute the sugar with a sweet wine, such as Moscatel or Pedro Ximénez. With less calories: Make the torrijas with skim milk, substitute the sugar with sweetener, and instead of frying them, grease a baking pan and bake each side, at 180 degrees C,( 356 degrees F) or until they are golden brown.

Two Spanish Recipes for Semana Santa by Alberto Ávila / Photo on opposite page by Tamorlan, Wikipedia. On this page: photo on the bottom also from Tamorlan, in Wikipedia. Other photo by Imael Olea, Wikipedia


side from the Holy Week and Easter processions in Spain, there are many sweets and desserts that are considered to be traditional for this period. Some of them, or similar versions, can be found in almost any part of Spain. Others are unique to certain areas or regions. The following are recipes for delicious Torrijas and Pestiños, that are easy to make, and are known throughout Spain.

Pestinos A pestiño is a Christmas or Holy Week pastry that is popular in Andalusia and other regions of Southern Spain. It is a piece of dough that is deep fried in olive oil and glazed with honey or sugar. It is what some might describe as a “honey-coated sweet fritter.” Its form and composition vary from region to region and are different in the towns in Andalusia. Ingredients: • 750 grams (@ 6 cups) of flour a glass of olive oil • • a small glass of anisette , orange juice, or sweet wine(e.g. Moscatel or Pedro Ximenez) • a pinch of salt • powdered sugar a cinnamon stick and a lemon rind • Heat the glass of wine in a pan, together with the lemon rind and the cinnamon stick. When it is hot, remove it from the heat source and let it cool. Remove the rind and the cinnamon stick.

Pour the glass of olive oil into a bowl, along with the wine and the pinch of salt. Begin to stir and pour in the flour little by little, stirring at first with a wooden spoon, and then afterwards forming the dough with your hands. (It won´t stick since it has plenty of oil.) The resulting dough has to be light but firm. Form small balls with the dough and flatten them in squares so that you can join two opposite sides (like a turnover). Make sure to flatten the seal between the two sides so that when you place them in the oil, they do not open up. The frying oil has to be very hot. Fry them in small quantities and when they are golden brown, place them on

absorbent paper towels. Afterwards roll them in the powdered sugar and they are ready. Some people recommend that, after cooling, they be refrigerated overnight.
