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
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.
