Buy your "bienmesabe" from the Convento de Belen, and the Convento de San Jose.

Antequera is famous for its desserts, such as bienmesabe (meaning "tastes good to me"), a sponge-based pudding with almonds and cinnamon; and angelorum, a concoction of sponge, meringue and egg yolk. As well as in local pastelerias, you can buy these in the Convento de Belen, and the Convento de San Jose. Other local specialities include porra antequerana, a cold dip that's like a thicker version of gazpacho; marinated partridge; rabbit; and spinach-stuffed boquerones (anchovies).
