Leche frita (fried milk) is a Spanish dessert typical of the North of Spain and traditionally served during Easter. The milk fritter is a sweet custard, set in the fridge overnight, cut into squares, fried like a doughnut and finished with a dusting of sugar. My grandmother used to like serving this dessert every Easter Sunday so I have a fond memory of it. I like to make the custard not too thick so when you fry it and cut into it, it begins to melt. I like to serve my version with homemade cinnamon ice cream.
