This soft looking bit of yum is called a niño, for short. It’s more like cake and goes great with ice cream as you might expect. I love coconut, so if you do, too, this is the one to try.
In the States, we might called this a jelly roll or something like that, but in Mexico the full name of this moist, sweet bread topped with coconut is Niño Envuelto.
Do you love sweet treats like this, too? Be sure to see other breads featured in this on-going series at estropajos, cacahuates, bolillos, orejas, libros, conchas, soles, chinos, pay de queso, roscas chinas, puerquitos, huacales, and ojos.
Have a delicious Friday,
