Tocino de Cielo or Bacon from Heaven

Sunday- Funday....
For me is just a day to relax.... Well, what I mean is for laziness...

I want to keep away from the kitchen, or if I need to be there on Sunday at least to make something simple.

And taaa daaaa... I found this wonderful dessert recipe originally from Spanish Gastronomy.

Is so so so easy to make, but probably not for eat the same day, may be the next one. So if you are expecting to eat something sweet today this is not the right one, just check for another recipes from my blog...hehehe...

Basically this Bacon from Heaven is made from eggs sugar and water, YES that's it!

So try it, I am sure you will love it !

Bacon from Heaven

                6 egg yolks
                9 oz sugar
                1 fl. oz water

For the caramel:
                3 tablespoons sugar
                1 tablespoons water


Put the sugar in a saucepan with the water and heat until the syrup goes golden brown.

Cover a baking tin evenly and put to one side. Put the sugar and water in an earthenware dish and heat until the syrup goes stringy.

Beat the egg yolks and slowly add the syrup, stirring with sticks. Strain and pour into the caramelised tin.
Cook in bain-marie in the oven at 150ยบ for around 20 minutes.

When the tocino has set, remove from the oven, leave to cool and take it out of the tin.
