Springtime Spanish Sweets To Enjoy

April 20, 2021
It's spring again in Spain! The weather is much warmer (but still cool), the flowers have bloomed, and everything seems so new and fresh. It's as if nothing could go wrong anymore, right? Be that as it may, springtime also makes it perfect for enjoying some traditional desserts. Not that eating sweets is a seasonal thing; you can still enjoy what you want no matter what time of the year it is. However, there are some Spanish treats that you'll enjoy a lot more when during spring. Here are some of them that you can also prepare yourself at home!
Springtime Spanish Sweets To Enjoy


Tarta de Manzana Casera

One of the spring's seasonal fruits is the apple. There's no other time of the year that's more suitable to grow this juicy fruit than during spring. And with that comes a myriad of apple-ladened treats. One that's traditionally Spanish is the Tarta de Manzana Casera, or the Spanish apple tart. A puffy pastry treat with apple slices laid out as the crust, it's a tangy yet sweet dessert. It's perfect to top off with some melted caramel, ice cream, and the like! And no, this tart is far from the classic apple pie from the US. It's a Spanish treat all the way!

Flan

Now, you're probably thinking that flan is perhaps the most classically Spanish dessert out there. Many have enjoyed it during the other seasons. What makes spring a more suitable season for flan than the others? Well, it's the weather! Since Spain is located in the Mediterranean, springtime here tends to feel a lot warmer than in other countries. Hence, enjoying a chilled treat like flan makes for a perfect cooling pastime. When the sun gets a little too hot at the peak of summer, some freshly made flan right out of the nevera is the best answer!

Leche Merengada

Speaking of chilled treats, some Leche Merengada will also hit the spot during Spain's warm spring season. Made with milk, egg whites, a dash of cinnamon, and some lemon zest, it almost harkens back to the eggnog treat that's enjoyed during Christmas. But the leche merengada is not tied to any holiday! You can enjoy it whenever and wherever you want. But, just like the flan, the warm sunny season makes it a perfect treat to enjoy during springtime. You almost couldn't distinguish if it's a milkshake or a smoothie. And once you take a sip, you won't even care either way!

Polvorones

How about some candy? Polvorones are, perhaps, the most unique type of candy you'll find in Spain, Mexico, the Philippines, and other Spanish-colonized countries. It's one that basically just milk-flavored powder shaped into candy. Once you take a bite, it quickly becomes delicious dust that overtakes your mouth unlike any other. Although this treat isn't exactly specific to spring, it's the type of Spanish sweet that you'd expect kids to enjoy after playing all afternoon. Or your grandmother eats while she's relaxing in the garden as her radio plays old music. There's a relaxing and nostalgic charm to Polvorones that only feels suited for springtime!

Pantxineta

A traditional dessert in Basque country, the Pantxineta is the perfect picnic pastry. Topped with powdered sugar and almond nuts, it's almost like a French treat but it's pure Basquiat all the way! And it's easy to prepare and even better to enjoy. Say you want to have a picnic in one of the most beautiful spots in San Sebastian. Wouldn't you want a cream-filled pastry to serve as your dessert? This flaky puff pastry seems too messy to eat at your dinner table. Biting into it on a picnic blanket as you enjoy a beautiful spring day feels more fitting.
