All Malagueños love Torrijas during Semana Santa and they are widely available in most cafes and bars as something to have with your coffee to re-charge your batteries for the long evenings and nights whilst watching the processions. The sugar content certainly gives one a “hit” and boosts your energy!
I was given this recipe about 20 years ago by a lovely old lady who was a neighbour. She is sadly no longer with us, but I always think of her at this time of year as I get the pan out to make this very traditional dish.
A three or four day old Loaf of Bread (I find a Spanish “barra” is best)
1 litre of Milk (full fat 😉 )
5 Tablespoons of White Sugar
1 Cinnamon stick
1 Glass of sweet Málaga Wine
The peel of one Lemon
Olive Oil (good quality)
