At first I thought, "this may be the first post where I don't need words, only pictures." But then I realized that only (I should say mostly) Mexicans would know what pan dulce is. It's so delicious, everyone should know about it!
Pan dulce translates into "sweet bread". The pictures above show "conchas" or shells.They are little loaves of bread with a sweet flavored topping. Growing up, they were not very common in our house, because many of the panaderias (Mexican bakeries) were not close by. When we did have them, they were gone super fast. I have a couple good memories of enjoying a warm concha in the morning for breakfast.
Since then, there is now a bakery really close to where I grew up, but alas... since becoming vegan I couldn't eat them without cheating. That's where my good friend the Internet comes in!
I found a great recipe, and they turned out absolutely perfect. Check out the recipe, and report back!
I made a little heart design on some of them for the kids : ) They were fighting over them.
