Roscón de Reyes - Large bun like a cake





  • 500 g flour
  • 6 eggs
  • 150 g butter
  • 150 g sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 500 ml milk
  • 1 lemon zest
  • candy orange and cherries
  • 1 surprise gift
  • 300 g whipped cream




1. Dissolve the baking powder with several spoonfuls of milk. Take  ¼ of the flour, make a well and mix with the baking powder then make a ball of soft dough.

2. This dough then has to be laid to rest, well covered, until it has grown to double its volume after approximately 2 hours.

3. Then beat together the rest of the flour with the eggs, sugar, the remaining milk, butter and lemon zest.


4. Knead the dough well until you obtain a compact and soft dough. Then the two pastries are mixed and both have to be left to rest covered and in a warm place for 2 hours.

5. After this, knead the dough again and place it on the tray with some flour over it.

6. Now is the moment when the characteristic wheel form has to be shaped (don't forget to introduce the gift surprise).


7. Then it is adorned with frosted fruits and all the dough is covered with yolk. Next sprinkle it with glazing sugar and put in a preheated oven to 160ºC.


8. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes. It is also very common to open the ‘roscon’ and fill it up with cream.

The authentic taste of "Sweet Spain" through its traditional confectionery. These Spanish recipes will reveal the delights of traditional Spanish sweet dishes, many of which have been handed down through generations. Easy to follow recipes allow you to create wonderful cakes, tarts, biscuits and cream delights. The purpose of these 101 Spanish dessert recipes, with traditional cakes and sweets, is to celebrate traditional Spanish home cooking "like Grandma used to make" and to encourage another generation to give it a try. 101 Spanish dessert recipes includes cakes, tarts, sponges, biscuits and much more. They are very simple recipes and all you need is passion and a desire to make the perfect dessert or cake. Our memories, triggered by certain dishes, go beyond the appearance, smell and taste of the food. It includes the way it was served: the tablecloth, the coffee cups, the ceramic cake plate. Often such memories extend to the rituals of preparing food. Perhaps you helped your mother or your grandma to make the dough, to sieve the flour, to add some water or maybe to sprinkle flour on to the pastry board.

My own early memories of home cooking date from my childhood when many food items were still rationed and expensive. As an adult, I look back at the food cooked by my mother and family. It gives me pleasure to introduce it to you, hoping these dishes will become part of your own culinary repertoire to delight friends and family. The power of food to unlock memories adds to the pleasure of cooking and eating food we enjoyed as children. Cooking when you are a child is immensely rewarding. It is shared fun, and introduces them to the deep creative satisfaction of preparing, cooking and serving food to family and friends. That is a good legacy for our future generations.

The ebook is the perfect partner to ebooks such as “101 Tapas Recipes” or “The Mediterranean Diet” from the “Learn Spanish 4 Life Series”.
