Mexican conchas diet version

Conchas are a very common sweet bread in any mexican table at breakfast time. Mexicans usually eat conchas with coffee, juice or atole (sweet hot drink made of corn flour), and they are the best accompaniment to mexican eggs or chilaquiles (fried corn tortillas stewed in spicy sauce).

Conchas consist on two different doughs: the first one is a kind of bun. The second dough is disk shaped cover in which you wrap the bun. The colour of the cover is usually white, but you can find them coloured in pink or brown. This recipe contains less sugar than the real conchas, so they are a little bit healthier.
