Easter Week Spanish toast

Torrijas (French toast)

Golden on the outside and very soft on the inside, Spanish torrijas are delicious traditional Easter treats that are similar to French toast. They are a typical dish during Spanish Holy Week celebrations, and the first written references to them appear in records dating back to the 17th century, although as far back as the first century the Romans were making a kind of torrija from wheat biscuits that were dipped in milk and toasted in oil.
