Typical Spanish Torrijas

It's Easter and in Spain we have this traditional Easter food we call torrijas. It's usually my mom who does them in my house, but since I am in Belgium this year, I had to make them myself for the first time. And, not to sound conceited, but the result was pretty good!

If you want to try to make them yourself, they are very easy to make and they are delicious! However, there is not a exact recipe for this, you add the quantity you consider necessary. Therefore, all the quantities in this recipe are approximate. I recommend you begin by adding the amounts mentioned in this recipe, and if you need more, you can always add it later.


  • One baguette
  • Milk (3/4 Cup aprox)
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • Sugar
  • Eggs (2 aprox.)
  • Cinnamon powder 
  • Oil (to fry them)


  1. Slice the baguette making diagonal cuts.
  2. In a microwavable container, pour about 3/4 cup milk and add a cinnamon stick and two teaspoons of sugar. Heat it for about 1 minute.
  3. In another bowl, whisk two eggs.
  4. Heat the oil in a pad.
  5. In a plate, add some sugar and cinnamon.
  6. Now that you have all the ingredients ready you can begin to make your torrijas
  7. Soak a slice of bread in the milk.
  8. Soak the same slice in the eggs.
  9. Try the bread.
  10. Cover the fried bread with the sugar and cinnamon.
  11. Repeat for each slice of bread.

I hope you like this recipe. Please let me know if you try it!
