Torrijas at Horno de San Onofre

This time I would like to suggest a route that will leave you with a delicious aftertaste. If you have a sweet tooth you are in luck, because at Easter the shop windows of cake shops and bakeries in Madrid put on a very tasty show. Increasingly original chocolate eggs and “monas de Pascua” (Easter cakes) compete every year, to no avail, with the quintessential Easter sweet, torrijas, a firm favourite among Madrilenians.
