Pan de Muerto Recipe!

Pan de Muerto translates to bread of the dead, of dead man's bread, and it's eaten during the Day of the Dead. It's a Mexican sweet bread that's not very difficult to make. There are several variations of the bread, but the recipe consists of flour, eggs, butter, milk, and yeast. Bakeries in Mexico have plenty of these during the holiday -- the air is filled by the sweet, warm aromas from the bread. The Day of the Dead is between October 31st and November 2nd.

Mmm...bread ^_^

What You'll Need:

5 cups of all purpose flour (add more if needed)

1/2 Cup of Sugar

1/2 Cup of Milk

1/2 Cup of Butter

1/2 Cup of Water

4 Eggs

2 packets of yeast

1 tsp of Salt

For The Glaze

1/2 cup sugar

1/3 cup fresh orange juice

2 tablespoons grated orange peel for zest

How To Make It:

1) Put the following ingredients into a large bowl: 1 1/2 cups of flour (put the rest aside), 1/2 cup of sugar, 2 packets of yeast, and 1 tsp of salt. Mix all together and put aside.

2) In a saucepan heat the milk, butter, and water on medium heat until the butter has melted. Pour the contents of the saucepan into the bowl of the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Add four eggs and mix.

3) Keep mixing while you slowly add the rest of the flour. Keep adding the flour until it's soft and slightly sticky. It will be easier to use an electric mixer.

4) Transfer the dough to a floured board and knead for 10 minutes unit it's smooth and stretchy. Put the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a plastic wrap, and allow to rise and double in size. That should take about 90 minutes.

5) Take the dough back to the board and knead down the size. Slice it in portions.

Now it's time to shape it up...

After you've finished shaping, allow the dough to rise for 1 hour.

5) Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 to 40 minutes, depending on size. You'll know it's ready when it's golden brown in color.

How to make the glaze:

I like cheeseburgers and cheap wine.
