Here is a photo of the wonderful Rosca de Reyes (next to a fresh pot of coffee) that the Grand Duchess Sonja prepared yesterday afternoon. It’s basically a sweet eggbread that is similar to Stollen but lighter and moister. It’s sort of the Mexican version of Stollen, typically enjoyed around January 6th, to celebrate the coming of the Three Kings, following the birth of Jesus.
Bakeries all over
And the humorous side to all of this is. . . While we enjoyed the first pieces with coffee in the living room, ‘Rannveig’ the cat suddenly appeared with frosting on her whiskers and face. I suspect that she was closely inspecting (and perhaps sampling?) the Rosca, which was left to cool on the kitchen table after the photo was taken. Needless to say, poor Sonja will not be having any more of her Rosca. As for me, well, you know. It just looks too good to throw away, so. . . ;-)
