In Mexico, in addition to the savory Molletes that are covered with refried beans and melted cheese, we also have a buttery, sweet version: "Molletes Dulces". (Molletes Dulces means sweet molletes.) In this recipe, we will be making the Sweet Molletes version.

  • 3 pieces of French bread 3-in long, or three French dinner rolls
  • 3 tablespoon of butter
  • 3 teaspoon of sugar


  • Ground cinnamon


  • Cut the bread pieces lengthwise.
  • Heat a griddle over medium heat and place the bread pieces upside down to toast.
  • Toast the bread for about 3- 4 minutes, being careful not to burn it, then turn them.
  • While the bottom of the bread is toasting, carefully spread the butter on the top. You can also spread the butter after they are completely toasted.
  • Remove from griddle, and dust with sugar. Serve with a glass of milk or a warm cup of coffee. Enjoy!


You can use other types of pieces of bread, but try to use bread that has a closed crumb, those types of pieces of bread that are dense but still have a soft crust, where the butter is easier to spread. Rustic pieces of bread tend to have a hard crust and an open (airy holes) crumb.
If you need to make a large batch, use the oven, or even your broiler. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and place the already sliced bread on a baking sheet. Once it is toasted, spread the butter.
