Pan de Muerto translates to bread of the dead, of dead man's bread, and it's eaten during the Day of the Dead. It's a Mexican sweet bread that's not very difficult to make. There are several variations of the bread, but the recipe consists of flour, eggs, butter, milk, and yeast. Bakeries in Mexico have plenty of these during the holiday -- the air is filled by the sweet, warm aromas from the bread. The Day of the Dead is between October 31st and November 2nd.
