The “torrija” is a delicious and simple Spanish Easter dessert! It is usually made by soaking stale bread in milk that has been boiled and flavoured with cinnamon sticks and lemon peels. It is dipped in beaten egg and fried with olive oil. Later and while it is still hot, it is covered with cinnamon sugar. The cook Domingo Hernández de Maceras in his recipe book ‘Libro de Cozina’ (1607) uses the word «torrija» to describe the dish, but he doesn’t explain the cooking method he used. Felipe II’s palace cook, Francisco Francisco Martínez Motiño includes the recipe in his book ‘Arte de cozina, pastelería, vizcochería y conservería’ (1611); its nearest cousin is the “French Toast”. ​
