Pan de Muerto

Pan de Muerto (Bread of the Dead) is a soft, yeasty bread that is prepared for Día de los Muertos. It’s lightly sweetened and often flavored with anise- and orange-blossom water, giving the bread a delicate taste and enticing aroma. Before baking in the oven, the dough is typically rounded, topped with bone-shaped pieces of dough, and dusted with sugar.
