Bocado de Reina is a Guatemalan cake made with leftover bread. It is similar to bread pudding but has more of a cake consistency. This is a very easy and fast version of the recipe using condensed milk, but you can substitute the condensed milk for 1 cup of milk mixed with 1 cup of sugar for a more traditional recipe.
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 can of condensed milk
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp of cinammon
- ½ cup of raisins
- 2 cups of crumbled bread
Preheat oven to 350F. Mix first 4 ingredients in a glass bowl. Add crumbled bread, mix well and let stand 5 minutes. Add raisins and mix. Pour into a 8 inch round cake mold. Bake for 45 minutes.
– Add two bananas, mashed up.
– ½ of chocolate chips instead of raisins
I post recipes that are either typical dishes from my home country of Guatemala, recipes from other Latin American countries or interesting and fun recipes with ingredients that give them some sabor Latino. If you have any suggestions or would like a specific guatemalan recipe let me know in the comments section.
