After 40 days of restraint, many of us grew up anticipating Easter Sunday for one reason...sweets! Here are some of our Latino favorites like bread pudding, rice pudding, and bean pudding?
Capirotada is a Mexican bread pudding that uses a clove-and-cinnamon-spiked sugar syrup base. The ingredients also hold Easter meanings, with the bread symbolizing the body of Christ, the dark syrup, his blood, and the cloves are the nails used in the Crucifixion.
Dulce de Lechoza starts as peeled papaya. Add sugar cane, cinnamon, cloves, and syrup, and you’ve got a classic holiday sweet. Dulce de Lechoza is a popular Easter dish for Venezuelans (on top of rice pudding) 😋
