Roscon de Reyes is a Spanish Three Kings cake made at Ephiphany (5th January). I have several different recipes so decided to post them all and let you choose which one suits you best. This recipe is posted per a request by a member and I will make it as soon as I can. If you make it before I do then I would appreciate your feedback. Cooking time includes rising time. Thanks!"Roscon de Reyes" is a traditional dessert, served the night before or morning of “Reyes” or Epiphany, January 6th. "Dia de Reyes" or simply "Reyes" is the day when children in Spain receive gifts from the "Reyes Magos"–Wise Men or Magi. The 3 kings who brought baby Jesus gifts. Instead of gifts from Santa Claus, they receive them from the "Reyes Magos." It is traditional to put several surprises inside the "roscon." A porcelain figure of a baby wrapped in foil and a dry bean are hidden in the dough. Whoever finds the baby will have good luck and be the king of the party, but if you find the bean - pay for the cake!
