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.
There are also variations of popular sweet treats in other countries. Turrón de chocolate, arroz con leche, leche asada, tres leches cake, and crema volteada for example.
