Fried milk is a very popular Spanish dessert throughout Andalucia and indeed all of Spain. This recipe comes from our very own village of Orce, kindly provided by ‘Angelita’ who’s desserts never fail to impress us or the kids!


250g (8.75 oz) plain flour
150g (5.25 oz) sugar
150g (5.25 oz) butter
500ml (17 fl oz)whole milk
4 eggs, separated
150g (5.25 oz) fine breadcrumbs
Olive oil for frying
1 small cinnamon stick
Peel of ½ a lemon
Extra sugar or icing sugar for dusting

How to make

  • Sieve 175g (6 oz) of flour into a bowl. In a saucepan, melt the butter and add the sifted flour. Stir together and cook gently on the lowest heat. Add the sugar, stir again and continue cooking slowly.
  • Heat the milk with the cinnamon stick and lemon peel in another pan to just below boiling point, strain and add to the pan with the sugar, butter and flour, stirring all the time.
  • When the mixture starts to bubble, remove from the heat and add the egg yolks one at a time, making sure one is mixed in before you add the next. Stir well to achieve a smooth, thick batter.
  • Oil a shallow baking tin or dish and pour in the mixture, shaking to level it out.
  • Place the tin in the fridge and leave to set for 2-3 hours.
  • Once set, remove from the fridge and cut the batter into small squares or rectangles.
  • Beat the egg whites from earlier lightly and then dip each square into the remaining flour, the egg whites and then breadcrumbs.
  • Heat the oil in a small deep pan and fry the coated squares in batches until golden all over.
  • Drain on kitchen paper and serve dusted with sugar or icing sugar and extra cinnamon if you wish. Goes really well with pureed apple or pears.

Makes about 20 - 25 squares
