Torrijas Lactose Free Recipe!

Torrijas are a traditional dessert in Spain. People from other countries think that this is the Spanish recipe for French toast! The secret of the torrijas? The bread can´t be fresh! It´s important that the bread is from previous days so that it´s hard. In that way, the bread absorbs the milk much better and also it stays in one piece when we fry it.

Today we have cooked this traditional Spanish dessert with 100% natural ingredients but we have used milk without lactose so that the whole family can taste it !! It’s a lactose-free dessert!

Aceite de Oliva Virgen Extra


















Ingredients (10 uds.)

  • 10 slices of bread without lactose.
  • 33 fl.oz. milk without lactose.
  • 3 organic eggs.
  • Cinnamon on branch.
  • 1 vanilla pod.
  • The skin of a lemon and an orange.
  • 0,6 lb of white sugar.
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon.
  • Extra virgin olive oil to fry.


  1. Put the milk with cinnamon, vanilla pod, lemon peel and orange in a saucepan on the heat and bring to the boil.
  2. When it starts to boil, we will remove from the heat and let cool. We fill the milk
  3. Prepare a container that will serve to wet the bread chosen for the torrijas.
  4. Beat the eggs until they foam a little and add two tablespoons of milk. We return to beat and place in another dish that is comfortable to dip the torrijas before frying.
  5. We put a pan with extra virgin olive oil and heat over medium heat.
  6. While the oil is heated we bathe the slices of bread in the milk. We turn it over so that it is well impregnated but not dripping and we go through the beaten egg that we have prepared. From there we directly pass the bread to the pan with hot olive oil.
  7. Fry the torrijas on both sides until golden brown.
  8. Remove to a dish with absorbent paper towels to remove excess olive oil.
  9. Prepare a wide bowl with sugar and ground cinnamon. Mix well with a fork.
  10. We will pass the torrijas by sugar and we´ll place on a tray.
  11. Let cool and taste at room temperature or cold. You also add topping a little honey if you want!
