The recipe is almost the same as my grandmother's own except she uses yeast as a rising agent and uses as much flour as needed to form a non sticky ball of dough. She also used diluted molasses and water as a glaze.

I agree with Ayad´s comment, it familiar to me, because on the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua that´s the way the Black/Creol community prepared it during this season. I like it! Happy Easter.
