Important details of the Rosca de Reyes

In case, you have always wondered why we cut a Rosca on the 6th of January in Mexico, we have to start by explaining that even though it has lost its religious value with the years, for Mexico and some countries in Latin America, the Rosca de Reyes symbolizes the search of the Wise Men for the Baby Jesus and every detail of the rosca is given with the birth of Jesus on mind. For example, the doll represents the baby Jesus, while the circular shape of the rosca the eternal love of God. In addition, the nuts represent the jewels embedded in the crowns of the Holy Kings.

  18. 50 g sugar

  20. 60 mL warm milk
  21. 3 plastic dolls



  1. Sift the flour and set aside.
  2. Mix the milk with the yeast, one tablespoon of sugar and four tablespoons of flour.
  3. With the help of the mixer, incorporate the flour and then the milk mixture (ferment), the egg and butter, as well as the zest and salt.
  4. Once the dough has rested, remove it from the bowl and divide it into four equal parts. With the help of a rolling pin and a little flour, roll out the dough on the table so that there are uniform rectangles of the same size. Distribute the plastic dolls among the rolls so that they are evenly distributed.
  5. Braid the dough and form a doughnut in the baking pan. Seal the edges with egg like in the picture below,
  6. With the help of two waxed papers, place a portion of dough to decorate and stretch to form a rectangle that covers the donut vertically.
  7. Place four-five portions of dough to decorate, and let it rest for 15 minutes covered with a semi-wet cloth.
  8. Bake the dough in a preheated oven at 190 oC for 45 minutes or until it takes an even golden color and the piece is well cooked.
  9. Remove from the oven, allowing it to cool and decorate with cherries, powdered sugar or any fruit of your choice and don’t forget to add vanilla strips, so that everyone knows that it is something different, that it has gourmet vanilla from Los Cinco Soles, Cancun, Cozumel and Merida, and enjoy it with a hot chocolate as the tradition says
