Natillas is the spanish term to name this delicious dessert very popular in Spain. It is a curstad dish made with milk, egg yolks, sugar and, with a touch of vanilla or lemon. The most common is with vanilla but it is also popular to add other tastes such as chocolate or cinnamon. My mum and my granny used to prepare them quite often when we were children. It is really easy and quick to make. I used their recipe but I added hazelnut praliné and it taste absolutly delicious.
