Leche frita

Few cultures would be adventurous enough to call a recipe 'fried milk', especially since it's made by boiling and frying. But that's the basis of this delectable treat. Great desserts don't come any easier than this one.


2 egg
1 q milk
4 oz sugar
3⁄4 c olive oil
1 pce cinnamon (about 1 inch piece)


  1. Mix the cornflour with the milk. Bring the milk to a boil and add sugar, then add the cinnamon stick and continue for ten minutes more. Stir frequently.
  2. Then, pour the mixture into a tray and allow to cool to room temperature. As it cools it will thicken and it will become nearly solid.
  3. Slice the result into squares about two inches on a side.
  4. Coat the results with egg and deep fry in oil on medium heat.
