La Marañuela de Luanco

Néstor Alonso

Luanco, Asturias, ES


A traditional dessert from Luanco, (Asturies), a fishing village in the north of Spain. The shapes of the marañueles are reminiscent of sailor knots.
Sailors and fishermen brought them on board because they stay fresh for a long time, like ship biscuits. Currently they are eaten especially during the Easter holidays.
The traditional ingredients are flour, sugar, butter, eggs and lemon zest.
Bon Appetite!
