Brazo de ReinaEvery January 6th, we celebrate "Día de Reyes" in Latin America to commemorate the visit of the Three Wise Men to the Christmas manger. It's the culmination of the holiday season, and for many, the last day of vacation before going back to school and work. On this date, we exchange gifts and cook a traditional meal that includes a rosca or baked sweet bread.
In my family, we call our rosca "Brazo de Reina", a pastry roll filled with strawberries and dulce de leche. The most challenging part of this dessEggs beat to stiff peaksert is rolling the fillings inside the bread without breaking it, but I've got a very specific technique that involves using a wet towel to roll it. It will actually take very little time to make it, from beginning to end, giving you more time to enjoy with your family.
