Torejas(Cuban-Version of French Toast)
25 mins (prep 10, cooking 15)
12 ingredients
6-8 servings
These used to be served as a dessert en Noche Buena(Good Night)when the families would gather together and then go to La Misa del Gallo- Midnight Mass)Before Castro. A lot of the Cubans brought that tradition to Miami, where they could celebrate without the fear of being arrested for practicing Catholicism and eating food that was bought on the black market. This is the way the Cubans of before have adapted this recipe to the convenience of their cooking here in Miami or the USA and then I took some poetic license, as well.
