During one month a year at the time of Easter, we can find “torrijas” (sweet fried toast, similar to a bread pudding or a french toast) and special pastries all over Spain. I’ve tried many “torrijas” in Marbella, in bakeries and cafes, so I can recommend you:
Classics never die, milk with sugar and cinnamon, I just love them. They offer a version with sugar and another with honey for sweet tooth, both with very smooth texture and a delicious sweet cinnamon flavored milk. Juicy but not oily at all. I could eat dozens of them.
Moreover the fried toast (torrijas), in Goyo you can find a great assortment of candies and Easter treats, pestiños, leche frita, hornazo, mona de pascua, easter eggs ….
Filled Torrijas in Cafetería Troyano
They are made with milk and sugar or honey, both are filled with some custard, sparingly and is not heavy . Personally, I am not a filler lover but in this case, and after trying many in Marbella, I must say that the Troyano toasts (torrijas) have a very, very, nice flavor.
Torrijas de Troyano
In Troyano you can find also other Easter sweets, sugar or honey pestiños and meringue and chocolate “penitentes” .
Pasteleria Salon de Te Lepanto
Wine torrijas, honey and sugar i was told, but if you want me to tell you the truth, i could´t feel the wine!! they were delicious anyway.
Torrijas and much more in Pastelería Cantero
It is a traditional bakery, where you can find the most authentic traditional sweets and where year after year customers from all over the world come to take home or as souvenirs for friends some sweets.
Beyond the classic torrija you can find also pestiños, borrachuelos, roscos, … and many more!
