- Traditional recipe from Cádiz
- Almonds, sweet potato & egg yolk
- Size - 12.3 oz/350 g
Pan de Cádiz is a distinctive confection made from sweet potato, ground almonds, sugar, egg yolk and cinnamon. The interior is rich and flavorful, with a moist, creamy texture.
The recipe comes from the magical city of Cádiz - a very narrow peninsula surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean. Founded by the Phoenicians, people have lived there for over 3,000 years. (I bet that you did not know that Hercules founded Cádiz -- at least that's what they tell us). Because of its unique location, some of the Cádiz cuisine is theirs alone.
Aromas de Medina is a family company that took their family recipes, passed on down the generations, and decided to share them with the world. They still make these Christmas treats by hand and pack them one by one in the package that you will receive.
Medina Sidonia, where they are located, is an ancient city in the province of Cadiz - some say it is the oldest city in Europe, founded by the Phoenicians thousands of years ago.
Almonds, sugar, sweet potato, egg yolk, condensed milk, glucose, ascorbic acid, potassium sorbate (antioxidants) and salt.

"Delicious, as expected. It was though a bit on the small size compared to what I would normally buy in Spain. I expected it about twice as big. This is not however an impediment for me to buy it again. Thanks for a good product!"
