The best Spanish cakes are simple, sweet, and delicious. We often enjoy cake as a sweet treat for merienda (the traditional mid-afternoon snack). Most Spanish cakes are light and moist, and because many of them are made with extra virgin olive oil, they've even got some health benefits!
Try a classic Spanish snacking cake to get started, like my apple olive oil cake or lemon yogurt cake. For something a bit more festive, my crustless pumpkin cheesecake is perfect for fall, and the traditional Spanish roscón de Reyes is a must for Three Kings Day in early January!
