Baking Challenge – European Style: Spanish Bienmesabe

Actually it’s Canarian Bienmesabe. 🙂 It was really difficult for me to find something Spanish and baked that sounded good to me. I’m not a fan of churros and empanadas just sounded too South American to me. But, finally, after a looooooong search, I ended up with those little treasures called Bienmesabe. And if my Spanish does not let me down, I believe the name translates to something like “tastes good”. And they do! Well, basically anything that comes in form of a muffin can’t be so bad, I’d say. Here’s the recipe:

Fresh out of the oven! Aaah, delicous!

  • While the muffins cool, mix together confectioners sugar and lime juice (Be careful not to take too much juice! A rather thick consistency works best for glazing.).
