Mexican Bread of the Dead

Mexican Bread of the Dead


In a medium saucepan, over low heat warm the Cacique® Crema Mexicana Agria and the butter, until the butter melts. Remove from the heat and stir in the warm water. The mixture should be around 110°F. Set aside.

If using a heavy duty mixer use the hook attachment or mix by hand using a wooden spoon. In a large bowl combine 1 cup of flour, yeast, salt, ground anise seeds, cinnamon and ¼ cup of sugar. Slowly add the warm cream mixture, mix until incorporated, add ½ cup of flour and the eggs and orange zest, and mix until well combined. Stir in ½ cup of flour and continue adding more flour until the dough is soft.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic. Place the dough into a lightly greased large bowl cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size. This will take about 2 hours.

Punch the dough down and set aside ¼ of the dough, shape the remaining ¾ of the dough into a large round loaf. Take the set aside ¼ dough and remove a large pinch of dough and roll into a small round meatball sized ball (set aside), with the balance of the dough make 2 bone shapes. Lay the bone shapes across the top of the loaf, making an X pattern, and place the round dough ball on top. Place the loaf on a lightly greased baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap and let rest in a warm place for 1 more hour or until just about doubled in size.

Preheat oven at 350°F and bake for about 35 to 40 minutes, until the bread is golden. Remove from oven, let cool slightly, then brush with glaze.


Day of the Dead Recipes

El Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is one of the most important and colorful celebrations in Mexico. Far from a sad or scary occasion, Muertos is a festive family commemoration of loved ones who have passed on, with homages and tributes in all households and major public places. As with any party, food plays a major role.

Observed each year on November 1st and 2nd, the Day of the Dead combines elements of a harvest festival, mystical beliefs of the Mexican pre-Colombian natives, and Roman Catholic views and motifs brought by the Spanish colonizers. Fruits and crops of the season often have multiple meanings when eaten at this time, or when placed on the altares (altars) prepared by each family to welcome the spirits of their beloved deceased. Our collection features recipes and customs traditional to all parts of Mexico, but keep in mind that each region and family has their own take and traditions to celebrate their dead.
