When I was in college, I used to have a cup of coffee and 5 pieces of pandesal as my breakfast. My friends often tease me that I am always on a diet or even scold me because that makes me thinner and even suspected that I am becoming so anorexic. But I always tell them that I’m not the only one who’s having that same set-up! Many Filipinos are fond of eating pandesal and accompanied by coffee! It is in fact one of the Filipino meal favourite not just here in my area but also all throughout the country.
Pandesal is basically another food influenced by the Spaniards. It is sometimes termed as pan de sal which is a Spanish name for pandesal. It is characterized by being a bread roll with cheese or even melted butter in it. Here is a recipe on how to make pandesal:
You will need:
× ¼ cup evaporated milk
× ½ cup sugar
× ½ cup water
× 4 cups flour
× 1 piece egg
× ¾ teaspoon salt
× 3 teaspoons yeast
× 1 tablespoon cooking oil
× 5 tablespoons butter (melted)
× bread crumbs
Here’s how to cook:
1. Except the bread crumps, mix all together all the ingredients, which will make the dough, and place into a bread machine.
2. Set the dough processing time and then push start button.
3. After that period of time, remove the dough and form balls according to your desired sizes.
4. Prepare the bread crumbs and distribute it into all sides of the plate.
5. Dip and roll the balls that you made into the bread crumbs.
6. Line up the balls into a parchment then let it expand or rise for about 30 minutes.
7. Place the parchment with the balls into an oven and bake for about 8 to 10 minutes.
8. After that, remove it from the oven and serve.
