This Fried Milk Recipe is inspired from  Leche frita, one of the most delicious and popular Spanish desserts.

Fried Milk is essentially a  firm, cold milk-pudding that is covered  with a warm and crunchy fried shell of flour and egg.

It’s best served hot out of the fryer with a scoop of ice cream, but some people prefer to eat it at room temperature, or cold from the fridge. 



Step 1

In a saucepan, whisk together the cornstarch, flour sugar, and 1/3 of the milk, until well combined and no lumps remain.

Step 2

Add the rest of the milk, and vanilla, and whisk to combine.

Step 3

Heat it over medium-low heat, stirring continuously in order to prevent any lump formation or sticking to the bottom.

Step 4

Whisk continuously until the mixture thickens to a pudding-like consistency, 10 to 12 minutes.

Step 5

When it thickens add butter and stir to combine.

Step 6

Butter a container and pour in the Leche frita or milk mixture ideally to a depth of 3/4-inch.Take the container accordingly or take more than one container.

Step 7

Let come to room temperature. Transfer to the refrigerator, covered, for at least 4 hours or preferably overnight.

Step 8

Remove the Leche frita mixture from the container and cut it into equal size squares.

Step 9

Whisk the eggs together in a medium bowl, Set aside.

Step 10

To a large, non-stick pan, add the butter and oil. Heat over medium heat until the butter melts.

Step 11

Place the flour on a rimmed plate, Coat each Leche frita square with flour, shaking off any excess.

Step 12

Then dip into the beaten eggs.

Step 13

Carefully transfer to the hot oil and fry until lightly golden, about 1 minute per side.

Step 14

Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate, Repeat with the remaining pieces.

Step 15

Mix the sugar and Cinnamon powder together to make Cinnamon sugar.

Step 16

Sprinkle the fried milk with cinnamon sugar. Serve warm or at room temperature.


  1. It is important that the Leche fried milk be at least 3/4-inch thick or it will be very difficult to fry and flip. Keep this in mind as you choose your container.
  2. Keep on stirring so that no lumps are formed. In case of any lump formation, you can transfer it to a blender and blend it for 30 seconds to remove the lumps.
  3. Refrigerate cooled leftover fried milk in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
  4. To freeze any fried milk, arrange them on a baking sheet and freeze. When frozen put them in a resealable freezer bag and freeze them for up to 1 month. Defrost them in the refrigerator overnight.
