Piñonate: a dessert that is only ever made during the Carnaval period. It’s made with eggs and flour, although sometimes a raising agent is added for lighter texture, and it is then left to set. Afterwards the mix is fried in the form of tortitas, similar to pancakes. Beforehand, honey and water are mixed in a frying pan, heated, and the tortitas are tossed in the heated mix and sprinkled with pine nuts, sometimes with the pine nuts covered in marzipan.

Torta Real: in Cartaya, this royal cake is made with the key ingredient, and the one that gives it is characteristic flavour, the almond.
