Eggless La Conchas ~ The Mexican Sweet Bun
Melon pan bread as well. The only different is the local sweet crust is soft and moist and so is Melon pan. Conchas is the traditional Mexican bun which has a harden & crispy outer crust looking like a shell and it's one of Mexico's most favourite sweet rolls. Conchas also called as Pan De Dulce which meaning sweet bread in English.
