Totally unrelated, I want to make this:
Back to why we are here.
So how did we decide on making a Mexican sweet bread without never having even eaten one? My son and I saw some prepackaged ones in the store and thought to ourselves, we can make this from scratch. My son Google for a recipe and found this one.
Like I said, we have never had one so we were not sure how it was supposed to turn out. So it is a roll with a shortening, powdered sugar topping on top. You have to option make a chocolate topping.
I decided to make the dough portion in my bread machine. This might not be a wise decision. I thought it turn out a little tough, but it was tasty. The dough did not seem to double its size. It might need more time to rise. The topping comes off a little too. You are supposed to put on some shortening on top of the roll before putting on the topping. I had my grandson help me, so he might not have put enough shortening on some of the rolls.
If we try this again, I will not use my bread machine. I will also make it will the chocolate topping.
Maybe we will buy some of the prepackaged ones to get an idea of how they are supposed to be.
