Magdalenas are one of the essential elements of a traditional Spanish breakfast. These hand-made sugar-sprinkled muffins are light and fluffy, with a hint of real lemon, perfect when served with coffee or thick hot 'chocolate a la taza'. A nice touch is the square of waxed paper which holds them, not a mass produced fluted cup.
We are connoisseurs of magdalenas, a favorite when we visit Spain. These are by far the best we have ever tried.
They are made by a small, family owned bakery near the city of Cordoba. They have been producing these incredible magdalenas for nearly 100 years using the original recipe.
