In Mallorca, All Saints' Day is celebrated in a special way with the tradition of "Panellets" or "Panellets de Sant Honorat." These are small typical pastries that are consumed during this festivity. Here are some examples of typical sweets for All Saints' Day in Mallorca:
Panellets are small sweet dough balls, often made with ground almonds and sugar, and covered with pine nuts. They are sometimes flavored with lemon or vanilla.
Although this tradition is more commonly associated with All Saints' Day in other regions of Spain, variations of 'Huesos de Santo' can also be found in Mallorca. These are sweets filled with marzipan or cream.
Buñuelos are fried dough balls that can be filled with cream, chocolate, or 'cabello de ángel,' a sweet paste made from pumpkin.
This is a variation of 'coca,' a traditional Spanish pastry. 'Coca de Sant Honorat' usually includes pine nuts and candied fruits.
In addition to specific sweets, it is common to consume candied fruits like pumpkin, sweet potato, or citron during this celebration.
Similar to the previously mentioned 'Huesos de Santo,' these sweets may contain a mixture of marzipan and fruits.
These sweets are particularly popular in Mallorca during All Saints' Day, and many local bakeries prepare them by hand.
