So a question was posed on The Bakery Spot, and I was excited to try and find an answer. Here is what the message said:
"Whilst traveling through Chicago I purchased a pastry from a Mexican street vendor that was absolutely delicious and quite filling. He said it was called a Bull's Eye or Eye of Bull but it was very different from the pastries I've seen online by that name. His pastry was about 6-7" in diameter and about 2" thick and very dense. The main portion seemed like a dense yellow or pound cake and it was encircled by a ring or flaky pastry. Do you know what this is and can you provide the recipe? Thank you kindly. Cheers!"
So after a bit of research, and with help from the hubby, we found the answer. And now I want to eat one!
Here is the answer:
"Ojo De Buey: round shaped pastry with thin flakey pastry dough surrounding a soft yellow cake in the middle."
And here is what it looks like (bottom row, second from left):
So excited to find the answer!
