"These Mexican sweet buns are great to make during the winter time, especially for Christmas! People love the sugar topping that browns when they bake." — Teresa Brignoni

I live in Mexico and this bread is very authentic. I've made it 2 times, the first time I used all the flour and they turned out more like biscuits. The 2nd time I used 4 cups and didn't knead it as long, they turned out perfect. This bread needs the topping to be real pan. But forget crumbly, make it pasty and spread it on. Perfect!
the bread was yummy but my topping did not turn out like the picture mine was clumpy
Great recipe! Will definitley make again; whole family loved them. They're best right out of the oven. I gave the recipe to my friends and they loved them. I put all ingredients in bread maker on dough setting much easier that way.
IT WAS A VERY GOOD RECIPE JUST LIKE MY GRANDMOTHER USED TO MAKE WHEN I WAS A KID. I DIDN'T NEED ALL 5 C. OF FLOUR. WILL DEFINETLY MAKE AGAIN. THANKS!!
I found this recipe when helping my son with a project. They were a huge hit at home and school. I've started making them for the family. The changes I made was to add a tsp of vanilla to the topping to make it pasty, and to make 32 smaller buns rather then 16 large buns. These were still the size of a regular bagel so that was fine by me. As a tip make the topping first, spoon it onto plastic wrap, roll it into a log and chill while making the dough. Then slice into small rounds with a hot, wet knife and place them onto the buns before baking. Saves a lot of time this way...
This was the first time I've ever made a yeast bread of any sort. I was very pleased with the results. If I can make these, anyone can. I will make these again.
Exxccellentt!! These are very delicious and soft. I too, used less than 5 c. flour and put all ingredients in the bread maker. That made it very simple, the kids enjoyed helping me. The aroma of this bread was flowing throughout the house, it made our mouths water. YUMMYY! Thanks!
This is a very good bread. It has a good texture and is simple to make. I find that if you over mix the topping just enough you can spread it easily on the dough, then score it like they do in those mexican bakeries. So far I've made this bread 3x for my family, it's also good w/o the topping as either a dinner roll or with some cinnamon-sugar mix on top of it.
