Once upon a time, back in 1910, there was a woman by the name of Ines Rosales who began making Sweet Olive Oil Tortas completely by hand. She then sold these handmade Tortas in Seville, Spain at a train station. They were so delicious that they would disappear almost instantly when she’d arrive each day, and soon, the demand became so great that she needed help making them. These special Tortas were so delicious that they became widely known throughout all of Spain.
Fast forwarding to today, these Tortas are still hand-made following the same unique recipe from over a century ago. These Sweet Olive Oil Tortas are now made in a variety of flavors, including Original, Cinnamon, Sweet Orange as well as savory flavors like Sesame and Sea Salt and Rosemary and Thyme.
The savory flavored Tortas make a wonderful replacement for ordinary bread for a sandwich. Pair them with goat cheese and fruit spreads for a truly gourmet treat! For the sweeter flavors, nothing pairs better than coffee or tea, or you can use them as the base for a dessert. Try this quick & easy recipe out!
