In Mexico “Pan Dulce” or sweet bread, is a big thing, there is an enourmous varieties of sweet bread that you can’t even imagine, we even have special shops that only sell “Pan Dulce” they are call “Panaderias”, bakeries.
At home in London I sometimes like to make some of these recipes, this one is my children’s favourite pan dulce. We call them orejas (ears) because of their shape, it is a very easy recipe to make and you only need three ingredients, so there is no excuse!

- 1 puff pastry sheet
- 150 gr caster sugar
- 5 gr ground cinnamon
- Preheat the oven to 200 C or gas mark 6
- Open the puff pastry sheet and remove it from the paper.
- Sprinkle some caster sugar on baking paper and place the puff pastry sheet, press it with a roller pin so the sugar sticks to the pastry.
- Fold on side to the centre of the pastry and do the same with the other side (see picture), sprinkle some sugar.
- Then fold them again the same way and sprinkle sugar.
- Make the last folding and sprinkle sugar and cinnamon.
- Flat them slightly with a rolling pin and sprinkle more sugar.
- Place them in the hot oven and bake for around 15 to 20 min or until golden brown and crispy.
- Turn them up side down so sugar crisps both sides.
