Beaver tails in Montréal

Beaver tails. I did not realize that was the name of this delicious quickly-fried dough, which in Mexico we probably would call “suela” (sole). In the Mexican version, you cover the dough with salty/savoury stuff, like refried beans, ground meat, chili, etc. In the Canadian version (at least the ones I saw in Montréal) you cover them with sweet stuff. I ordered a beaver tail with banana and nutella in my most recent trip to Montréal, and I absolutely loved it. Crepes? Who remembers crepes when you have beaver tails? And apparently, this dessert is very “Canadiana”.

I found a recipe for Beaver Tails. Have you ever tried beaver tails? If so, what’s your favorite?

Depending on where you go, they sometimes call them Whale Tails too. As silly as it sounds, I’m usually happiest with the regular old cinnamon and sugar.
