Intro: Mexican Sweet Bread (Pan Dulce)
Here is a twist on Mexican sweet bread.
I made this cinnamon topped bread in a muffin pan.
Usually the bread is made on a cookie sheet.
Step 1: Ingredients
This recipe makes 24 sweet bread muffins
2 1/2 teaspoons yeast
1/2 cup warm tap water
1/2 cup evaporated milk
a 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup melted butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon
4 cups white bread flour
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 cup white bread flour
1 tablespoon cinnamon
Step 2: Make the Dough
Mix together all the ingredients except the flour. Then slowly add the flour until the dough makes a ball.
Step 3: Knead the Dough
Knead the dough on a floured surface for five minutes.
Then set aside in a covered bowl to rise.
Step 4: Make the Topping
Mix the butter and sugar until fluffy.
Add the flour and cinnamon and stir to make a thick paste.
Step 5: Put the Bread in Muffin Tins and Add the Topping
Cut the dough into 24 pieces.
Roll each piece into a ball and place in a greased muffin pan.
Flatten a ball of topping and press it on each dough ball.
Step 6: Let Rise and Bake
Put in a warm place to rise for one hour.
Then bake at 375 degrees ferinheight for 15-20 minutes.
