Description

Sobaos is a Spanish delicacy found in particular in the Cantabria region. Make your own version of this Spanish treat at home with this recipe for Sobaos, Cantabrian Cake. Combine the flours, yeast, salt and water the night before you plan on making your Sobaos as the yeast mixture needs to be allowed to ferment overnight. Lightly flavored with lemon and anise liqueur, these cakes are sweet and flavorful. They have a slightly crumbly texture, but are not dry.
