Torrijas are a typical Spanish Easter dessert. Made with slices of 2-or-3-days-old bread, milk, egg, sugar or honey and cinnamon they are very sweet and taste. "La Casa de las Torrijas" (Calle de la Paz 4, next to the Puerta del Sol, Madrid) specializes in torrijas since 1907, a sweet usually associated with Easter time. They also make the less-common, but no less delicious, "wine torrijas".
