Torrijas. This scrumptious treat is very traditional for Easter, with recipes dating back to the 1600s. Thick pieces of bread are soaked in a mixture of milk and egg, then fried with olive oil and served with honey and sugar.

Flores de Semana Santa. Also known as flores manchegas, these sweet and fried pastries come in delightful shapes.

Potaje de Vigilia. Traditionally served on Good Friday before Easter Sunday, this 'vigil stew' is made of cod, chickpeas, spinach and garlic.
