I discovered this dark, sweet bread with candied fruit and raisins last year when my husband and I had a layover at the airport in Panama. I really liked it, and asked the clerk at the coffee shop if she knew the name of the bread they had served with cream cheese and coffee. She told me the name of it. When I got back, I looked for more information online and found that it’s the traditional bread of Panamanian cuisine, and even though it is consumed all year long, it is most consumed during Holy Week.
Making homemade bread is very exciting. This bread is delicious for breakfast or even as a snack. It goes great with coffee or any type of tea. Slice it and try it with any creamy cheese or your favorite jam. I guarantee you will enjoy a delicious treat!
