Lengua is Spanish for  tongue and the name of this sweet bread that takes me back to my childhood.

The Lengua  is a baguette type dough with sugar on top. More crunch than dough since it is flat. It costs Q1.75 and cost Q0.15  when I used to run out to the bread delivery blue van which came every afternoon at 4:00pm to our block.

Muy sabroso! Extraño el pan de Guatemala. Con el ambre que tengo ahora, me comeria unas 12.
Buen provecho!
