This ensaimada is just like the way i remember when my mom would made it when we were kids. Very nostalgiac. The baking smells throughout the house is unbelieveable. The texture creates a fantastic mouth feel and taste is heavenly. We thought that we lost this recipe forever. We found that the temperature was too high and decided to bake them at 350 degrees instead. My whole family is VERY grateful! Definitely worth the extra rising steps.
