‘Pan De Budín’ recipe

By: Pablo Contreras

Pan De Budín is just bread pudding, and this is what this recipe is, but it’s just a Mexican version of bread pudding from the United States.

This is my grandma’s recipe and this was an easy and hard process; it didn’t have a lot of steps so that was a plus, the outcome didn’t come out the way that I expected, but it was still fun making this.

Beware this recipe does require you to use your hands and if you don’t like touching raw dough with your hands then use gloves before beginning.

Pan de Budín

Here are your ingredients:

  1. 2 Piloncillos (cane sugar cones)
  2. 1/2 of water
  3. 4 pan dulces (can be purchased at Mexican markets and bakeries)
  4. 1 stick of cinnamon
  5. 1 1/2 of milk
  6. 3 eggs
  7. 1 tablespoon of baking powder
  8. 1 cup of vegetable oil
  9. 1/2 cup of raisins
  10. 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract

Here are your steps:

  1. In a pot, put in 1/2 cup of water, add in the 2 piloncillos, and 1 stick of cinnamon, and put it on the stove on medium heat
  2. Wait for the piloncillos to fully melt down and then turn off the stove and take out the cinnamon stick
  3. And now we wait for the honey mixture to cool down

Here is how to make the dough:

  1. in a big bowl put in the 4 pan dulces and tear them apart into small pieces
  2. Add in the 1 1/2 cups of milk, 3 eggs, 1 tablespoon of baking powder, 1 cup of vegetable oil, and the 1/2 cup of raisins
  3. Then mix it all up with your hands
  4. Once it’s all mixed up and it’s a dough texture cover the bowl with plastic and let it cool in the fridge for about 1 hour
  5. Take out the dough from the fridge and mix in the honey that we made earlier with the dough, after that, cover the bowl with plastic again and put it in the fridge for an hour
  6. After an hour find a square baking pan and cover it with non-stick baking spray (don’t use a lot, only a little!!! – this will cause it to be flat), take out the dough and spread the dough all around the baking pan
  7. Now set the oven to 380, once the oven is fully heated put in the bread for 35 minutes
  8. After the 35 minutes take out the bread and let it cool down (if it’s not ready leave it in for a little more)
  9. Now that the bread is fully cooled down cut yourself a piece and grab a scoop of ice cream (if you have any) and place it on top of your slice and enjoy 🙂
