  • 1 Pack active dry yeast
  • 1/3 Cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp Salt

How to make Mexican Pan Dulce:
  • Heat milk in a small saucepan, until it starts bubbling. Remove from heat.
  • Add butter and stir till it melts completely.
  • Pour into a large bowl to cool.
  • Dissolve yeast in the milk mixture.
  • Mix in 1/3 cup sugar, salt, eggs and 2 cups flour. Whisk.
  • Stir in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and supple.
  • Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil.
  • Cover with a damp cloth and let it rise in a warm place, until doubled in volume.
  • Divide the dough into 16 equal pieces and make round balls.
  • With a rolling pin, roll the balls into oval buns.
  • Place them on two lightly greased baking sheets.
  • Cover the rolls with a damp cloth and let them rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • While the bread rises, make the topping.
  • In a small bowl, stir together 1/2 cup sugar, 2/3 cup flour and butter, until a crumb mixture forms.
  • Stir in the egg yolks until well blended.
  • Crumble the topping over the rolls, in a way that the entire surface is covered.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until sugar topping is lightly browned.
  • Mexican Pan Dulce is ready.
