Ines Rosales : A delicious torta recipe

Olive Oil Tortas from Ines Rosales are a must in every Spanish kitchen, they are the perfect blend between tradition and modernity all contained in a diameter of 12 cm of crisp, thin, light, slightly sweet yeast biscuit popular as a  quick breakfast or as a snack.

The history of the torta de aceite began in 1910 when Ines Rosales started making the tortas and selling them at a train station in Seville. Her huge success led her to open her own company. Today they still use the same recipe and make them the traditional way, hand-shaped and oven baked. Some new flavours have been added to the traditional Olive Oil Tortas such as Seville Orange, Cinnamon, Rosemary & Thyme and Sesame & Sea Salt.
