Concha: A Classic Mexican Sweet Bread (Pan Dulce Mexicano)
It is estimated that there are more than a thousand varieties of Mexican sweet breads, or pan dulce as the locals call it. But without a doubt, conchas are not only the most popular but also the most recognizable of them all. In fact, they are a staple in every panaderia across Mexico City.
In English, concha translates to seashell, which makes sense given that the topping of this Mexican sweet bread resembles seashells. Conchas are made up of two layers, a crunchy topping and a sweetened bread roll. This traditional dome-shaped sweet bread is light and airy and made from masa de bizcocho.
The eye-catching striped top layer is covered with a paste made of sugar, flour, and shortening, scored to resemble seashells, hence the name concha. Traditionally, the topping is either white or brown (cocoa powder). But more recently, colorful toppings, ranging from yellow, pink, and blue, have emerged.
Love at First Bite: Why Conchas Are Popular
Enjoyed by people of all ages, conchas are not overly sweet but pleasant enough to complement your coffee or tea. And they can be savored at any time of the day.
Once you take that first bite, the sugary top layer crumbles and melts in your mouth. Then an airy, sweet roll would greet your taste buds.
