The 6th of January is the Epiphany, called in Spain "Kings Day" (Día de Reyes) because it is when the Three Wise Men visited Jesus in Bethlehem. In the Spanish tradition the Three Wise Men (Los Reyes Magos) leave presents to the children who were good, and only charcoal to the naughty ones, and there are big parades all across the country, celebrating the arrival of the Magi. The 6th of January is a public holiday when the families gather to have the last festive meal and exchange gifts.

Roscón de Reyes is a seasonal pudding that is traditionally eaten on the 6th of January (though most families can´t wait and have it on the evening of the 5th, right after picking it up from the bakery or the supermarket, that will be closed on the 6th). In the dough, there is a bean and a figure. The one that finds the figure is crown as a king or queen, and the one who finds the bean should pay the roscón. Despite everybody knows the rules, each roscon comes with a card that explains them, and that is usually read out loud before cutting the roscon, just to clarify the game (but I never heard of anybody who ended up paying for the pudding after finding the bean).

But the Roscón de Reyes is not only one of the most beloved Christmas puddings in Spain because it is fun. It is also a very special sweet. The dough is rich and requires a lot of keneading and a lot of patience to let it grow. In the dough you can find wheat flour, fresh yeast, milk, sugar, butter, eggs, grated orange peel, a bit of liquour to give it taste (but the result is completely alcohol free and suitable for children), agua de azahar (orange blossom water), olive oil and a pinch of salt. It is usually coated with glazed fruits, but it can also be coated with sugar, almonds, candies...

Our roscones are homemade by a Spanish expert baker and are topped with sugar and cherries. Despite roscón de Reyes is a seasonal pudding, any day is a good day to have a roscon!
