This sweet bread is prepared as part of the traditional celebration of Día de Muertos (2nd of November, Day of the Dead) in Mexico. Its classic presentation is powdered with sugar, however there are other recipes that call for sesame seeds, it depends on the location and tastes.
Is not a quick recipe, but is easier than it seems and the result is completely worth it and satisfying to know you made it yourself, completely homemade. Let me know if you try it out!
You can find the original recipe here (in Spanish and with video demonstration)
