Good Question: Dessert for a Spanish Dinner

Pin it button big

A faithful reader named Faith got Monday's open threaders going on the topic of what dessert she might serve at a Spanish-themed dinner party (and nothing so obvious as flan).

Despite an admission that she is not familiar with Spanish cuisine, Faith is pondering some pretty Spanish-sounding desserts like an egg-y cake with oranges in wine, a chocolate mousse with a burnt sugar topping, a flourless orange cake and even fresh-fried Spanish doughnuts. There were a few other great suggestions like almond cakes and a ricotta-cheese take on a traditional flan.

We found a few lists that might inspire: here, here, and also here.

Any true dessert-loving Spaniards out there? Chime in, help the woman!
