Torta de Pan Mojicón (Mojicón Bread Pudding Cake)

This Torta de Mojicón is a traditional dessert from Bogotá, the capital and largest city of Colombia. This beautiful city is located in the center of the country and was declared a World Book Capital, by UNESCO, and Iberoamerican Capital of Culture, by the UCCI.

Some of the most popular dishes of Bogotá are ajiaco, changua, carajillo, canelazo, almojábana, merengón, and chocolate caliente.

Torta de Mojicón is a sweet and moist bread pudding cake made with Mojicones(Colombian sweet rolls) and guava paste. I love serving this dessert while it’s still warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a cup black coffee on the side. It’s very easy to make and is a fun cooking project with kids.

Buen provecho!
