Mama’s Bollos de Hornazo is an Easter favourite. This recipe goes back generations and in true tradition it must be made in bulk to feed the family, the neighbours & the shop keepers at la plaza.

Did you know? There’s a tradition of painting boiled eggs and wrapping them into the dough so that when you bake them they become part of the bread.
