magdalenas - Spanish cupcakesThe name Goxua is not Spanish, but Basque, and is pronounced "go-shoo-ah", meaning sweet. As its name implies, Goxua is indeed a sweet and creamy dessert from the Basque Country of Spain. Pastry chef Luis López de Sosoaga of Vitoria invented it in the 1970's, and it is now a very popular dessert everywhere in Spain. What is it? A layer of sweet whipped cream is laid down as a base in the bottom of a dish. Liquor-soaked lady fingers are the next layer, on top of which goes creamy custard. A burnt-sugar crust or caramel sauce coats the top.
