The Bread Baking Babes are celebrating Independence Day!
No, they don’t have their calendar backwards.
It’s Mexican Independence Day (or it was, anyway….)
Heather, of girlichef, and our host kitchen for September, loves this bread and bakes it often…..
Conchas translates to shells in English, and they get their name from the beautiful sugar crust that tops them, since it is cut to resemble the shape of a seashell. If you have a good Mexican Panaderia (bakery) near you, you’ve probably seen these colorful sweet rolls before. If you’ve never tried them, I recommend getting to the bakery early and loading up a tray with a pile of them, still warm from the oven. Seriously, a concha and a cup of coffee is enough to bring a smile to anybody’s face in the morning.
Funny thing….. We don’t have a lot of Mexican bakeries here in France.
I think I could safely say we don’t have any.
But I keep thinking… warm sweet rolls, cinnamon and sugar crunchy topping, mug of hot chocolate….
Now, that’s breakfast!
If you want to join the fun this month go to girlichef and get the recipe as well as the scoop on being a Bread Baking Buddy this month.
And that’s it (so far) for the Babes in September!
