How to make torrijas

Each Easter we prepare torrijas for our students. La torrija is a sweat dish, tipical to eat during easter. The smell of sugar and cinnamon fills the school. When all students come out of class and enter our sunny garden the delicious torrijas are waiting for them. It´s one of these days that make it extra special at Linguaschools. This year it is a bit different but you don’t have to celebrate Semana Santa without torrijas! Because here is the recipe!! Try to make them at home, close your eyes when you take a bite and imagine yourself in the schoolgarden. Buen provecho and happy Easter!
