Wanted something #sweet but with rich in protein and fulfilling (must be the weather and my desire of hibernating :P). One of my childhood memories is eating my auntie’s delicious Capirotada which I had only eaten twice since is more a north Mexican kind of dessert. So I decided to hunt for a recipe and this is the one I tried and loved it (I could have used a bit more syrup, though)
Capirotada is kind of a “bread pudding” which as many of my home country’s desserts, is a mix of sweet and salty flavours. But very good balanced that makes it delicious but rich as well! So don’t skip the “weird mix” of ingredients, give it a try and let me know if you liked it!

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)
