Mallorcan Ensaimada Dessert Events

Mallorcan pastries and desserts

Ask a Mallorcan what foodstuff best represents the island and they are likely to reply, the ensaïmada, Spain’s answer to the croissant. This versatile, light, fluffy-textured spiral pastry is dusted with icing sugar and comes in a variety of sizes, from bite-sized portions to the cake-sized ones you see people lugging on to planes. Locals eat ensaïmadas at breakfast, spread them with sobrassada as a savoury snack or serve them stuffed with nuts and fruits and covered in cream a dessert. Other popular sweet pastries are bunyols (doughnuts) and robiols and crespells (both particularly popular at Easter).
