These are mucenici ❤️, a brioche type of dessert, baked and enjoyed today, as today on 9 of March we celebrate the 40 Christian martyrs sentenced to death because of their religious beliefs.
These buns are shaped as number 8 because there were 8 days of torture for the Christisn martyrs. The number also signifies the universe, the rebirth and life.
There are two types of mucenici: moldovenești and muntenești (mine are mucenici molodovenești).
I love their simplicity and their lovely taste and flavor of honey and walnuts. 😋😋
Do you love mucenici? 🤗😍
