Tortilla Cake

Tortilla cake, also known as a Spanish tortilla or tortilla española, is a traditional Spanish dish made with eggs, potatoes, and onions. It's a delicious and filling dish that can be served as a main course or as part of a tapas spread.


  • 4 medium potatoes
  • 1 medium onion
  • 6 eggs
  • Salt
  • Olive oil


  1. Peel the potatoes and slice them into thin rounds. Finely chop the onion.
  2. Heat a generous amount of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the potatoes and onions to the skillet, spreading them out evenly. Sprinkle with salt.
  3. Cook the potatoes and onions slowly over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are tender and lightly browned. This process will take around 20-25 minutes. Make sure to maintain a gentle heat to avoid burning the potatoes.
  4. While the potatoes and onions are cooking, beat the eggs in a large bowl. Season the beaten eggs with salt.
  5. Once the potatoes and onions are cooked, transfer them to the bowl with the beaten eggs. Mix well to ensure all the potatoes and onions are coated with the egg mixture.
  6. In the same skillet, heat a small amount of olive oil over medium heat. Pour the potato and egg mixture back into the skillet, spreading it out evenly.
  7. Cook the tortilla on one side for about 5 minutes or until the bottom is set and golden brown. To flip the tortilla, place a large plate or another skillet over the top of the skillet and carefully invert the tortilla onto the plate.
  8. Slide the tortilla back into the skillet, uncooked side down. Cook for another 3-5 minutes until the second side is set and golden brown.
  9. Remove the tortilla from the skillet and let it cool slightly before slicing it into wedges or squares.
  10. Serve the tortilla cake warm or at room temperature as a main course or as part of a tapas spread. It's delicious on its own or served with a side salad or some crusty bread.
