A Cafe Cortado and a Rosquilla, that’s how.
Ok…that looks INCREDIBLE!!
That looks fine!
Oops. I mean, well, oh yes, beautiful and glorious way to wake up in Spain. Toss a few medialunas in for good measure afterwards for breakfast part 2 and I’m a happy man.
Or is that glutton? I forget.
anyone who says they don’t like doughnuts is either lying or lying.
Oh, sigh. Cafe cortado. When we spent a month in Spain back in ’01, that’s how I started every single day, though usually with a piece of toasted crusty bread and marmalade. To die for. I love the Spanish coffee — so rich and chocolatey!
Mmm, puts the Clif bar I ate this morning to shame!
…followed by a few slices of jamon Iberico for lunch. Yummo!
Now THAT is just plain mean!
Think i’m going to book a flight right now…
Rosquilla: Originally from Cantabria region. You can find it also in Madrid, but in the rest of spain it is almost impossible to find a good rosquilla.

Oh I’m beyond jealous, I’m craving this right now!
It looks great.
Rosquillas, is one of the most popular recipe of tradicional sweets, in all regions of Spain. The best recipes are a monacal secret. All the mother have her own recipe. I’ve the mine. If somebody want it, email-me…
From Asturias, North of Spain.
As Pierre suggested, rosquillas are not as popular in Barcelona as they are in other regions of Spain. Here, we’d rather have a slice of “pa amb tomàquet” (large toasted loaves of bread with tomato scrubbed on its surface, a little salt and olive oil), topped with some good spanish ham (preferably “jamon iberico de bellota”). Man, I’m salivating…
