Piloncillo is made from unrefined cane juice that’s reduced by boiling then poured into cone-shaped molds to dry. The resulting brown sugar cone is richer in flavor and harder in texture than regular brown sugar. Piloncillo is a staple in the Mexican kitchen and is primarily used as a sweetener in flan, capirotada and other desserts. It adds caramel-rich flavor to traditional beverages like hot chocolate, ponche and atole. The cones are often melted into syrup for serving over buñuelos.
