- Cinnamon stick
- Extra virgin olive oil from the Sierra de Montoro.
For the syrup we need:

- We put to heat in a frying pan or medium saucepan plenty of extra virgin olive oil from Montoro, and then fry the pieces of bread.
- Soak the bread slices in the hot milk soaked with the cinnamon and lemon peel, drain, dip in beaten egg and fry in oil.
- Drain the slices on paper towels to release excess oil.
- Previously, we have prepared a mixture of sugar and cinnamon powder. The proportion will be according to the taste of each consumer. Dredge the bread, still warm, in the mixture and place the torrijas in a serving dish. The proportion depends on the taste of each consumer.
