Torrijas are particularly popular at Easter. They are eaten all over Spain and consist of slices of bread soaked in milk, sugar and egg, and fried in olive oil.
1 pint of milk
3 or 4 eggs
Slices of bread for ‘torrijas’
- Cut a large loaf of bread into fairly thick slices (you can also use ready sliced bread).Mix the milk, sugar and beaten eggs in a bowl. Dip the slices of bread in the mixture and fry in a pan with boiling oil until golden brown. Then drain well.
- Place the ‘torrijas’ on a serving dish and pour honey over them. It is also traditional to add the sugared milk to the serving dish so that the ‘torrijas’ soak it up and become more spongy
