Caramelized torrijas

Author Salvador Alagón Sarasa


  • Large round loaf of bread slices
  • 1 l milk
  • 150 g sugar
  • 500 ml cream
  • 1 Stick cinnamon
  • 1 Lemon zest


  • In a small sauce pan infuse the milk together with the sugar, cream, a stick of cinnamon and the lemon zest.
  • Once it has boiled, remove from the heat and allow it to cool.
  • Once the mixture is cooled, submerge the bread slices assuring that they are soft, and bathe both sides of each slice with sugar.
  • Lastly, heat a non-stick frying pan, to caramelize the bread on each side.


To assembly: place on a slate the ration of French toast which has been caramelized, accompanied by a quenelle of meringue milk ice cream, cinnamon powder and a few cinnamon twigs.
