La Peineta… The Comb… The Yum!

La Peineta filled with light sweet crema

This one is called La Peineta because it looks like the type of combs that are used to hold a woman’s hair in place.  Much Pan Dulce is named after an object that the bread may look like.  The names go from silly to weird to double-entendre-ish to obscene.

At La Panadería we have two types of Peinetas.  One has a delicate sweet cream.  The other has cajeta (or leche quemada).  Cajeta is a close cousin of caramel but thinner in consistency and tastier.

Take some for La Merienda to savor your cafecito.

Slow down and savor la dulce vida.
