Today I give you five dessert recipes made with olive oil to spend time with your family, friends or your children. All of them are traditional and real recipes from an area of Andalusia named Sierra Sur in Jaen.
Food and Cooking are next week tasks to enjoy with family and friends. There are some off-days and it’s the best moment to take a break in order to have a good time with them.
First of all, I want to say that this post is possible due to the collaboration of ADSUR (Association for Rural Development of Sierra Sur of Jaen).
These recipes, aren’t related exclusively to Christmas, they are used all the year, but I thought that Christmas, the olive season, is the ideal time to try them in the kitchen for sharing with our people. Dessert recipes made with olive oil are good for the entire year.
Let’s go to the kitchen.

First, we have to lightly fry anise in olive juice, after that, this juice must be mixed with bread dough. With this mixture, we build several plain circles, here named “tortas”, putting over them wallnuts and rhe raisins. Put over all the sugar.
Finally, those pieces, must be baked in the oven, preferably bakery.
Recipe from Julita Gallego Estepa. Valdepeñas (Jaén)
ROSCOS POBRES (POOR DONUTS)
We start by frying the lemon peel into a medium pan with olive juice. After that, we will put together the hot olive oil with flour into the same recipient. Add wine, bicarbonate, cinnamon and knead all together.
You will form donuts and put them over a lightly greased plate. Bake them at a moderated temperature.
When dounts will be baked, put a mix of cinnamon and sugar over them.
Recipe of Elvira Pardo Gomez– Los villaves (Jaen)
Put the eggs, olive juice and flour into the same bol, mix them during at least 10 minutes until the dough will not stick to your fingers, then you can build the donuts, big donuts, over 10 cm diameter (4inches more or less).Take them to the bakery in order to bake them at a moderated temperature.
Mix the sugar with the eggs white without reach peaks form and pass all the donuts through it.
Let them be, naturally, and you get it.
Recipe from Carmen Trigo Izquierdo–Castillo de Locubin(Jaen)
SEE YOU TOMORROW
WOW, it sounds great, it’s easy and it seems a beautiful way of spending time with children.
Next days I will post 7 recipes in the same way of these.
I’m glad to make an approach to traditional recipes of little villages where hard work was usually passed with this kind of meals.
I want to thank again to ADSUR their support.
