Delicious Peruvian Dessert Recipes
Peruvians love dessert. From the after-dinner Suspiro de Limeña to the mid-day snack of picarones, there’s always an excuse for some sweet (dulce) treats throughout the day. Peru lays claim to some of the best desserts in Latin America. Many of these dishes were brought in by the Spanish and adapted. Other dessert dishes were formed by blending traditional ingredients like purple corn with imported ingredients like sugar. Mazamorra morada is a good example of this fusion.
Every household in Peru has their own recipe or what we could call “family secret ingredient” for their favorite dessert recipe. Though there are many unique variations, there will always be one way to cook and prepare it. When preparing these dishes, expect a lot of stirring and attention to detail, but after all the hard work, you’ll definitely enjoy the taste of these delicious Peruvian desserts.
