The history of Mexican sweet breads spans several centuries, with ties to both the Spanish and French occupation of Mexico. Originally, sweet breads catered to the palates of these colonizers but, over the years, morphed into something uniquely Mexican–a food intertwined with the country’s rich culture and traditions. And while some of these sweet breads remain everyday fare, others are now served for specific holidays and celebrations, such as:
- Pan de Muerto, or “bread of the dead,” a sweet bread associated with Dia de Los Muertos.
- Rosca de Reyes, or Kings’ Cake, a sweet bread served on the Catholic holiday of Epiphany.
