Just Desserts

Locally grown fruits like mango, mamey, cherimoya, pomegranate, tuna (cactus apple), and strawberries are delicious alone or served with a dollop of cream and sugar. Stewed peaches and guavas are refreshing on a hot summer day, especially with a side of nieves (sherbet or sorbet). Among Mexico's most common desserts are tres leches (sponge cake soaked in three types of milk), churros (fried-dough pastry), and arroz con leche (rice cooked in milk with sugar and cinnamon). Capirotada (Mexican bread pudding), traditionally eaten during Lent, is made from French bread soaked in syrup, sugar, cheese, raisins, and walnuts.
