Mexican Bread of the Dead

Today, a traditional Mexican recipe for All Saints’ Day: Bread of the Dead.

It is a sweet bread with a dough like that of a brioche. This recipe is a little long because of the fermentation the dough needs, but the result will be worth it. This Cannabic bread of the dead is perfect for breakfast and snacks.

Ingredient for sourdough

  • 70 g of bread flour
  • 90 ml whole milk
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 21 g fresh yeast
  • 20 g sugar
  • 1 tbsp orange blossom extract

  • 10 g cannabis butter
  • Sugar
  • Preparation of the sourdough

    Bring the milk to a boil for one minute and then let it cool a little.

    Preparation of the bread of the dead

    Place the sourdough in a large container and add the orange zest, sugar, egg yolk and mix the ingredients vigorously.

    Add salt and sifted flour (sieving will give the bread an airier texture). Mix to remove lumps. Cover the mixture and let stand for 20 minutes.

    Prepare a clean, dry surface to knead the dough for about ten minutes.

    Add half of the marijuana butter to the dough of the cannabic bread of the dead. Repeat kneading with the other half of the cannabic butter: the dough will no longer stick to the kneading surface.

    Place the dough in a container coated with sunflower oil. Cover and let it rest for about an hour so that the bread of the dead doubles in volume. Knead again for one minute.

    Separate 95 g of dough for topping our cannabic breads of the dead. Separate the remaining dough into two equal parts and form two balls that you place on a baking tray.

    Add a little flour (about 5 g) to the 95 g of dough reserved for topping. This will keep them in shape during cooking. Take 4 portions of 20 g each and divide the rest in half. Shape these 4 bone-shaped portions (see photo) and place them on the breads. Place the two remaining balls in the centre of the breads as follows:

    Once the breads are decorated, coat them with a little sunflower oil and let them rest so that they double in size (about an hour).

    Preheat the oven sole to 175ºC before the end of fermentation. Place a small empty dish at the bottom of the oven.

    Once the breads have doubled in size, pour 100 ml of boiling water into the empty container to create steam. It is advisable to use gloves for this operation.

    Wait 5 minutes and then turn the oven to rotary heat (heat up and down for conventional ovens) and bake for another 20-25 minutes.

    Remove the cannabic breads of the dead and let them cool on a rack.
