Our latest entry in the Better Baking Academy with Bob’s Red Mill looks at a classic of the pandería: conchas. A famous member of the Mexican tradition of pan dulce (sweet bread), the concha sports an iconic crunchy, sugared topping, sliced to resemble a shell. For this special episode, we bring on two experts: Mely Martinez of the blog Mexico in My Kitchen and Kimberlee Ho of Kickass Baker. Mely, who splits her time between a home in Mexico and a home in Texas, offers insight into the history of this delicious baked good. Then Kimberlee talks about the delicious strawberry twist she created for our base concha recipe!
