Vermouth torrijas, torrijas for adults only
I have fallen into temptation again. As much as I will always defend traditional torrijas, and have sworn eternal hatred of modern torrija, the idea of making vermouth torrijas, some torrijas only for adults, had been around for a long time. I intended to make a torrija that had bitter touches versus the cloying sweetness of the more traditional torrijas.
In this case I have prepared the torrijas by dipping the bread in a vermouth reduction with sugar, - a kind of vermouth syrup with which to impregnate the torrijas bread so that it soaks well. After egg-frying the torrijas and frying them, I finished the recipe with a sprinkle of orange peel and sugar for the final presentation. The result is a surprising toast, ideal for adults that will not leave anyone indifferent.
- French toast bread slices 8
- Red vermouth 200 ml
- Orange peel
- Egg 2
How to make vermouth torrijasDifficulty: Easy
- Total time 30 m
- Cooking 30 m
We start by cutting the slices of torrijas bread and leaving them at room temperature for an hour so that the bread is more "rubbery" and absorbs more liquid during the soaking that we will give it later.
Meanwhile, we reduce the vermouth with the sugar and the orange peel strips in a saucepan, stirring from time to time and letting the mixture thicken slightly, turning into a syrup with a powerful flavor. Let it temper and soak the slices for about 15 minutes, turning them several times.
Once the bread is well soaked, we drain it and pass it through a beaten egg. Then fry the torrijas in abundant oil, draining the excess fat on absorbent paper. Grate orange peel with a microplane or a very fine grater and mix it with sugar, stirring so that it is impregnated.
We reduce the spicy vermouth left over from soaking, letting it thicken so that it can be used as a sauce. We present the vermouth torrijas sprinkled with orange sugar, decorating with a few strings of orange peel and a line drawn with the vermouth reduction.
