“This dish was served by my mother every Christmas. It was a big hit! This bead pudding is lovely with the texture of walnuts and the taste of cinnamon. This may be served warm or cold.”

What i would change about this recipe, because its the original way to do it, is use piloncillo, instead of the sugar. you can find piloncillo in the grocery store.. And if you like, add some chopped coconut on top of it. With the piloncillo , the flavor changes for better...

This recipe is different from the traditional way I've always made capirotada. But since it was so much faster to prepare I wanted to try it. I can't say I loved it. My kids wouldn't touch it and I think my husband only ate it because he felt bad for me. I would recommend more traditional capirotada recipes from other sites.

This was a great recipe. I used a "fruit Medley" mix(instead of all raisins), which is a combination of chopped dried fruits such as apricots, apples, pears, sultanas and some raisins etc.,between the layers. Everyone loved it at the dinner party. Served with a dollop of cream. You could also substitute chopped Pecan nuts instead of the Walnuts, if you felt they had too stronger flavour.(Lyn Smith)
