Torrijas - Spanish Bread PuddingTorrijas, a delicious Spanish bread pudding is great to eat for breakfast, or for an afternoon snack. It is a very traditional dish, originally eaten during Lent. During Lent Catholics in Spain would fast. So, bread accumulated, and became stale. Nothing would ever go to waster, so to use the extra bread, they would make delicious torrijas. Today, there are many variations of torrijas, including those soaked in wine, but the two most common variations are either topped with cinnamon and granulated sugar, or soaked with honey. Either way, they make a wonderful addition to the Easter meal.
