Pan de Muerto
Bake up a Dia de los Muertos loaf to rival even your abuela’s with this sweet and buttery Pan de Muerto from Anecdotes and Apple Cores. Whole milk, flour, butter, eggs, vanilla extract, orange zest, sugar, yeast and salt come together to form the bread’s dough, which is topped with reserved strips of dough to mimic bones, as the bread is traditionally decorated in Mexico for the festivities. Once the bread is baked up in a 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes or until a perfect golden color, brush the top with melted butter and sprinkle with a generous dusting of powdered sugar. Then, the best part, eat it!
