A Sweet Spanish

Mona de Pascua

Tradition for Easter

The “Mona de Pascua” is a typical cake from some regions of Spain, especially Catalonia and Valencia.

Godparents buy it or make it themselves for their godchildren on Easter.

Pastry chefs made buns with flour, egg, sugar, and one or more hard-boiled eggs embedded in the surface.

The traditions have evolved to include chocolate and different shapes and sizes.

And they can be really fun!

I've got a recipe in my story for making one at home.

A treat the whole family will love!
