I have some posts in the making, they’re going to be pretty exciting and worth the wait. Today I just wanted to share my on-going addiction to mogollas negras. Remember a long time ago I had talked about some of the kind of breads you can find here. The mogolla is a small soft bread and they exist in many varieties: whole wheat, cinnamon, white, cinnamon whole wheat, and some filled with dried fruit. The mogolla negra is the cinnamon flavored one and it looks dark brown. My addiction is not just to any mogolla negra but the Guadalupe brand.
I love to eat these out of the bag, but also warm with cream cheese, butter, or in sandwich style with ham and cheese (especially queso costeño). I’ve never seen this style of bread outside of Colombia, well actually I’ve never seen any “pan blandito” (soft bread) outside of Colombia. If you ever get the chance to come here head to any bakery and ask for “pan blandito”, after that, bread will never be the same again.
