There is no doubt that Asturians like sweets, proof of this is the large amount of sweet desserts with which we finish the meals in Asturias.
We will take a tour of many of them and we will give you the two recipes for perhaps the most emblematic desserts of Asturian gastronomy: rice pudding and casadielles.


Here we detail the most characteristic:
The borrachinos (crumb of bread with egg), the fried milk (with sugar and soaked in white wine), the casadiellas (sweet dumplings stuffed with walnuts, sugar and anise), the carbayones of Oviedo (puff pastry stuffed with almonds and covered with icing) and the panchón (kernel of spelled bread with butter and sugar that is fried and crumbled before serving, typical of Aller).

We also mention the known ones charlots of Gijón (cakes made with base and background of biscuits covered with chocolate and candied cherries), the marañuelas of Candás and Luanco (characteristic sweet cookies), the maravilles of Avilés (sweet bread), Paserine councils (typical of Mieres) and the almond cake (similar to the Santiago cake, made with puff pastry or sweet broken dough and filled with a mixture of egg, almond and syrup).
