Peruvian Rose Bread [BBB]

Gretchen Noelle

My love of food was cultivated early on by my family but has come alive while living in Peru. During the 12 years of living in Lima, Peru, I have also enjoyed numerous trips to other areas of the country. Here on Provecho Peru you will find Peruvian recipes in English, American favorites prepared overseas, news about Peruvian Cuisine and interesting tidbits about life in Peru.

    This looks so good! We want to try it, but are confused about how the braiding works? Do you happen to have step by setp pictures of the brading processes?

    Your braiding instructions were very clear, and so much simpler than I expected! Thank you for introducing me to this beautiful bread :)

    Your bread looks so beautiful! The definition is fantastic.

    My husband is so envious of your husband. When he saw your bread, he said to me, “Why didn’t you make a sweet filling like that for me??” :-D

    Beautiful rose. Your filling sounds perfect. Here sweet breads disappear quicker than savory ones as well.

  5. This bread is gorgeous! I love the idea of making it into one giant Cinnamon Roll. I’m so tempted!

    • Gracias! Bueno — no es un pan peruano exactamente. Era una receta de Rusia con un relleno salado y yo lo hice tal como pense mejor! Me encanta el manjar y intento usarlo en muchas recetas! Saludos del Peru!

    Perfect Peruvian rose! Love it! And you are right. One recipe different outcomes! That is what I love about bread baking!

    Love the beauty of your bread Gretchen, with the swirls created by the braiding. Sweet goes over well here, too, so will have to try this one your way.

    […] Yes, the entire process and outcome was a bit of a mess. But was it worth it? Absolutely!!! The dough for these was sweet, soft and delicious. The sour cherry jam was a perfect compliment to the sweet dough. I thought about using passionfruit jam since it worked so well in the Hungarian Shortbread or manjar blanco to make them similar to the Peruvian Rose Bread. […]
