Traditional mojicones with olive oil


How I like traditional desserts! And the good thing is that we have so much variety in our country that it is always difficult to reach everyone no matter how many we try. For example, I had never heard of the mojicones, until recently and it has not been until this week when I tried them.

The RAE says that the mojicón is a kind of thin bun that is eaten mainly with chocolate. And who says with chocolate says with a glass of milk, A coffee... the point is to wet it. Typical of Castilla La Mancha, They are one of those biscuits that soak up all the liquid if you don't care.

Conclusion very fluffy and very similar to cupcakes in terms of preparation. If you don't usually dare with pastries, this is a good recipe to get out with flying colors. Will you dare to try them? Go preparing both the paper and metal molds that we started!
