Who doesn’t like something sweet after a meal, or any time for that matter? And when you buy a villa in Spain you will have many opportunities to ruin your diet with these Murcian Sweet Surprises.
For foreigners this is a sweet surprise. It is a lemon tree leaf battered in dough of flour, egg, milk and shavings of lemon, which is fried and then dusted in cinnamon and sugar. Accompanied by a small glass of sweet wine it is a typical Murcian pleasure. However, don’t be deceived, the leaf CANNOT be eaten.
Dessert or coffee? Now there’s no need to choose as you can have both, thanks to this two-in-one Cartagena original. Delicious coffee with condensed milk and brandy, accompanied by a few drops of Liquor 43, cinnamon, lemon zest and coffee beans.
Pan de Calatrava
This delicious dessert was born out of the Muslim influence in the region, involving humble ingredients and simple preparation but with spectacular results. It only uses crème caramel, caramel and day-old bread or cakes.
Simple, yet oh so delicious, yemas are a typical sweet treat found in the city of Caravaca de la Cruz. The ingredients are primarily sugar and egg yolks. This candied egg yolk of sorts is available in pastry shops and bakeries throughout the city.
Whether you are planning retirement living abroad or a Costa Cálida holiday, leave your diet behind and enjoy!
