do you know the names of mexican pastries?

do you know the spanish translation of mexican pastries like empanadas filled with custard? more varieties are better, so I can be familiar with other kinds I saw in a bakery.


  1. Arroz con leche (rice pudding)
    elotes (long sugar covered sweet bread with fruity filling)
    cuernitos (coiled sweet bread, looks like horns)
    conchas (domed sweet bread with a grid pattern of sugar on top)
    flan (custard with syrup on the bottom)
    pastel de tres leches (cake made with three kinds of milk – whole milk, evaporated milk, and sweetened condensed milk)
    tamales (sweet tamales with raisins)
    cajeta (Mexican caramel, it’s good!)
    churros (long sugared doughnuts with ridges)
    chocolate (Mexican chocolate is shaped like a hockey puck and has chocolate and sugar and cinnamon in it)

    There are more I’m sure, but I can’t think of them right now.

    My least fav – flan (’cause I don’t like custard)
    My best fav – pastel de tres leches. Mmmmmmm!!!!!

    Beautiful, Loved and Blessed
  2. flan: yellow custard with caramel

    arroz con leche: white rice with milk, cinnamon and sometimes with raisins

    paste de tres leches: cake that has 3 different milks in it, i’ts kind of wet.
    pan de dulce: conchas, they look like shells with different colored sugar on top.
    there are others but can’t think of them right now.
