This year's pan de muerto
Here's this year's pan de muerto - I ordered it earlier this week from Panaderia Antequeria, and we picked it up fresh this morning.
The bakery was quite busy this morning, and we waited a while to get to the front of the line. While we waited, a young boy from the family that ran the bakery circulated among the patrons, offering trick-or-treat candy from a plastic pumpkin bucket.
When we got our loaf, the icing was still fresh and gooey, and came off on my fingers all the way home.
We cut a couple slices and ate it fresh with our coffee.
Delicious. A sweet yeast-raised egg bread - like brioche - flavored with anise, cinnamon, and orange rind. Tomorrow's breakfast.
