We proudly welcome our new special ensaimada, the Apricot Ensaimada. Everybody in Menorca appreciates traditional bakery so much, and one of our lifetime classic is the Apricot “coca”, we just took the receipt and we fit it to our ensaimadas.
The Apricot “coca” is a pastry that is prepared in Menorca since a long time ago, the typical dough from menorca cocas with half sliced aprictos on the top. The Apricot Ensaimada keeps exactly the same pattern, but adding the spongy properties of the ensaimada. Our Apricot Ensaimada is not filled, as the main ingredient is just on the top of the ensaimada. You can find them in two different sizes in our online store.
Our receipt keeps the same from 1873, and it is a tradicional and artisan receipt. The ensaimada is a product that keeps remaining in Minorca, by the way is one of the favorite souvenirs for tourists. It is a typical bakery product, ingredients are so common: flour, sugar, eggs and lard.
The name of the ensaimada comes from the word “saïm“, it is how people in Mallorca says lard. Nowadays ensaimadas keep made as they used to many years ago, and we really think that ensaimadas should keep this essence of tradition.
We don’t just have Crème Brulée Ensaimadas, in Sa Sucreria you can find our traditional ensaimadas, if you have never tasted this typical minorcan food we really recommend it to you.
If you want to enjoy your ensaimada the most, we really recommend you to follow the steps below:
- Unpack the ensaimada and let it rest a few minutes.
- Preheat your oven at 180º, turn off the oven and put the ensaimada in, but don’t do it more than 5 minutes.
- Use a strainer to sprinkle all the powdered sugar on the ensaimada.
