Como hacer Capirotada
( How to make Mexican Bread pudding)

Capirotada is a “traditional Mexican food similar to a bread pudding that is usually eaten during the Lenten period”

The traditional  recipe consists of pieces of toasted bolillos that has been covered in syrup made out of piloncillp (whole cane sugar), clove and cinnamon sticks.

The best part comes when you add in the toppings: nuts, seeds, and dried (and sometimes fresh) fruits – apples, dates, raisins, apricots, peanuts, pecans, almonds, pine nuts, and walnuts.

Capirotada carries historical Catholic tradition where many of the basic ingredients hold significant symbolism.
