Bakery makes giant shortbread in Spain

Malaga (Spain): A Spanish pastry bakery created a “polvoron” – a type of shortbread – that weighed 300 kg and distributed it Wednesday among 10,000 people at a mall in this southern city.

For the sixth consecutive year, Mantecados La Muralla baked this gigantic Christmas polvoron and brought it from its facilities to Malaga.

The polvoron was 5 meters long and 2.40 meters wide and weighed 300 kg.

A total of 120 kg of wheat flour, 75 kg of almonds, 50 kg of sugar, 50 kg of lard and 5 kg of cinnamon were used in its preparation, the factory manager, Jose Luis Olmedo, told EFE.

It could not be made any larger because “it wouldn’t fit” into the truck that was to be used to transport it, Olmedo said.

The idea arose in 2001 in Seville and since then the company has prepared the world’s largest polvoron for several southern Spanish provinces, as well as for Madrid and Badajoz.
