Mexican Capirotada Recipe



Ingredients :

  • 3 cups water
  • 3 cups brown sugar, divided
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 cups butter, softened
  • 2 loaves sliced white bread, toasted
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon, or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg, or to taste
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground cloves, or to taste
  • 2 cups raisins
  • 2 cups peanuts
  • 1 pound shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • Methods :

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Step 2

    Combine water, 2 cups brown sugar, and cinnamon sticks together in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until sugar is dissolved and liquid has reduced into a syrup, about 15 minutes. Remove cinnamon sticks from syrup using a slotted spoon.

  • Step 3

    Spread butter onto each toasted bread slice. Make 1 layer of buttered bread in a deep casserole dish or oven-proof stockpot. Sprinkle cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves over bread layer. Sprinkle 1/4 the raisins, 1/4 the peanuts, 1/4 the remaining brown sugar, and 1/4 the Cheddar cheese over bread layer. Repeat layering with remaining ingredients. Pour cinnamon syrup over entire dish; cover with aluminum foil.

  • Step 4

    Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through, about 30 minutes. Cool for 20 minutes before serving.
