Bolillos!

I was going through my Instagram feed and saw Sonia from La Piña En La Cocina post a picture of some delicious bolillos she had just made.  I could practically smell them through my phone screen (we need smell-a-phones!).  Immediately I was taken back to my childhood in Lennox, CA.

Growing up a block away from la panaderia, was the best thing that could have happened to me.  I could have fresh pan any time I wanted.  My favorite days to walk to Arreola’s Bakery  was on Sunday mornings.  I loved all the sweet bread but there was something about the bolillos that always appealed to me.  I would always get an extra bolillo so I could eat it as I walked back home.  All I wanted to do was to take the inside of the bolillo out and put it in my mouth.  My teeth would sink into the soft and airy inside of the bolillo …mmmm.  By the time I would get home, I had eaten the shell too and was ready to eat my pan dulce with some milk as if it was my first piece of bread of the day.  😉

I wanted to experience fresh, warm bolillos so I asked Sonia for her recipe.  It was very easy to follow.  I probably need more practice in the shaping of them but that doesn’t matter because they still taste delicious– just like they did on my walks home from la panaderia.

Soft!

And yes, I did take out the inside of the bolillo and ate it first. 😉

Of course I took it out!

Here is the link to Sonia’s recipe.  Tell her I sent you. 🙂
