How to prepare homemade sobaos pasiegos . Along with the quesada pasiega , the sobaos pasiegos are the kings of Cantabrian pastry. Specifically typical of the Pasiegos Valleys. Although today its consumption is spread throughout the peninsula. This sweet is typical of the rural areas of these valleys.

Originally, the peasant women prepared this sweet recipe based on bread dough that they then enriched with eggs, honey and butter. Today its preparation has varied, eliminating the addition of water to the dough. Preparing a sponge cake cream also sweetened with sugar as an alternative to honey. Today they continue to be prepared in concrete molds and with a shape that usually varies little, between square and rectangular. Since 2004 pasiegos sobaos have had a Protected Geographical Indication, which is specific to the area where they are made and packaged.
