Azuca Sugar


Pan de Muerto

Source: Mely Martinez

Makes 16 servings, 25 mg Azuca CBD each  


4 cups All-Purpose Flour 

2 Tbsp + 2 tsp Azuca CBD sugar  

2 Tbsp Active-Dry yeast 

½ cup white sugar, plus a little more for garnish 

1 tsp salt 

6 Tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature 

6 Tbsp margarine, room temperature 

5 large eggs 

Orange zest from 2 oranges 

1 tsp orange blossom water (optional) 

4 Tbsp warm water 


  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine 4 eggs, salt, ¼ cup white sugar, Azuca CBD sugar, and mix for 2 minutes using the hook attachment.  
  2. While mixing, add the flour in 1 cup additions, alternating with the warm water.  Add the Active-Dry yeast and mix well. 
  3. Add butter and margarine (reserving ½ Tbsp of each) then orange zest and orange blossom water, then ¼ cup white sugar. Mix well between each addition until a soft dough is formed. 
  4. On a floured work surface, knead the dough until smooth, and then knead for a couple more minutes.  
  5. Grease a large bowl with reserved margarine and place dough inside. Cover with plastic and let sit in an off oven or proving drawer until it doubles in size (about 1 hour).  
  6. Dump out your dough on your floured work surface and separate about 10 oz of dough. 
  7. Cut remaining dough into 17 equal portions and grease 2 baking sheets with reserved margarine.  
  8. Form each lump into a tight ball by gently rolling the dough under your palm on a lightly floured surface. Place on prepared baking sheets with 2” between balls. Gently press the balls to create discs. 
  9. Roll the remaining dough into 32 little logs and 16 tiny balls.   
  10. Beat remaining egg and 1 Tbsp of water to make an egg wash.  
  11. Brush the egg wash on each disc and place two logs on top in an X and the tiny ball in the center of the X. Set egg wash aside.  
  12. Cover baking sheets with plastic wrap and allow to sit in an off oven or proving drawer for about 2 hours, or until the buns have doubled in size. 
  13. Preheat oven to 350°F. 
  14. Add a pinch of salt to egg wash and brush the full surface of each bun. Place in oven and bake until golden brown (about 15 minutes). Transfer to a cooling rack and let sit until room temperature.  
  15. Melt remaining butter and brush onto cooled buns. Then sprinkle with a little white sugar and serve.
