Traditional Spanish Cake Cookies | SERIOUSLY Easy 10 Minute Recipe
These Spanish Cake Cookies, known as Españoletas Aragonesas, are about as good as it get´s when it comes to homemade cookies. We´re talking honest & clean flavors, the most basic pantry staples and only 10 minutes of prep work.
You can serve these cookies for breakfast, as an afternoon snack with coffee or tea, or even for dessert after dinner. Either way, with how easy they are to make and their delicious flavor, you will get hooked.
To make these cookies I used all-purpose flour. But you can also use whole wheat, gluten-free, or even self-rising flour (just skip out on the baking powder). Just use the exact same measurements and cooking times.
TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: Once all the ingredients are mixed together, you want to end up with a thick and creamy batter. Think cake batter. Hence the name cake cookies. If your batter is to thin, just add in more flour. Either way, these cookies are very forgiving. Meaning if your measurements are not 100%, the cookies will still turn out delicious.

Spanish Cake Cookies | Españoletas Aragonesas
- 3 large eggs
- 1 lemon
- 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar 250 grams
- 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil 90 ml
- 1 tbsp baking powder 14 grams
- 1/4 tsp sea salt 1.5 grams
- 2 cups all purpose flour 240 grams
Crack the eggs into a large bowl, finely grate in the zest of 1/2 a lemon, avoiding the white pith, whisk together until light and frothy, about 1 to 2 minutes
Once the eggs are whisked, slowly add in the sugar while whisking continuously, once all the sugar has been added, pour in the extra virgin olive oil and whisk until well mixed together
Add in the baking powder and sea salt, start whisking continuously while slowly adding in the flour, if you see the mixture is getting to thick to mix with the whisk, you can swap out for a large wooden spoon or a spatula
Once all the flour has been added and you´ve ended up with a thick and creamy batter, the mixture is ready to go, if you see your mixture is to thin or runny, add in more flour, either way, this batter is very forgiving if your measurements are not perfect
To start shaping the cookies, you can add spoonfuls of the batter into a baking tray lined with parchment paper, about the size of a walnut and evenly spaced out, or add the batter into a zipock bag, cut off the tip, and like a piping bag, add in the batter in the same method, once again, about the size of a walnut and making sure each cookie is spaced out, as they will expand while baking
Add the baking tray into a preheated oven, bake + broil option (bottom + top heat, similar to a convection oven) 180 C - 355 F
After 10 to 12 minutes and the cookies are golden brown and have a light crispy texture, remove from the oven, let them rest for a couple of minutes, enjoy!

I have just discovered you and your channel! As a vegetarian I really appreciate the numerous non-meat dishes. Quick question on these cookies: If I don´t have the bake-broil option on my stove, just a bake option, does that affect the bake time or temperature or how they will turn out?08 . Mar . 2023
