Pan De Muerto ☠

Pan De Muerto ☠

On November 2, which is the Latin American holiday El Dia de los Muertos (The Day of the Dead), my family tried a new recipe,”Pan de Muerto”  (Bread of the Dead).  El Dia de los Muertos is time to celebrate one’s loved ones who have passed away.  People offer presents to their ancestors including food, as well as toys for children who have passed.  It is not a sad holiday, but instead is a happy time of remembrance.  In Mexican bakeries during this time of year,  it is common to find Pan de Muerto, a round, sweet yeast bread decorated with pieces that resemble bones and dusted with sugar.  It tastes delicious with hot tea or Mexican hot chocolate.

The recipe is free of peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, and soy.

Here is what ours looked like:
