These Peruvian banana torrejas are very easy to prepare and you probably already have all the ingredients at home. These melt-in-your-mouth torrejas are golden on the outside and very spongy on the inside. If you’ve never had them, you’ll be surprised at how delicious they are. The best thing is that your little ones can help you prepare them. My kids love to help mash the bananas and stir them in the mixture, I like to serve my torrejas with honey, but you can serve them alone and they are also delicious.
