I miss Pandesal

I just miss the pandesal I used to buy on our local bakery store in my country Philippines. It is usually eaten with coffee in the morning.It is also the most popular bread among Filipinos.  So I then search for a good recipe , but of course there are loads of it so it’s up to you which one you will choose. I then manage to pick one whom I think might meet my expectations. I wanted my  pandesal to be soft, crusty and of course tasty and  this recipe didn’t fail me 🙂 from Panlasang Pinoy.

Ingredients

Note: I did not use bread flour as I can’t find one  instead I use  four cups of all purpose flour, still  it turned out right.

Cooking Procedure

  1. Combine the yeast, sugar, and warm milk and stir until the yeast and sugar are fully disolved
  2. In the mixing bowl, combine the dry ingrdients starting with the flour then the sugar, salt, and baking powder . Mix well by stirring
  3. Add the egg, butter, cooking oil, and yeast-sugar-milk mixture in the mixing bowl with the dry ingredients then mix again until a dough is formed. Use your clean hands to effectively mix the ingredients.
  4. In a flat surface, knead the dough until the texture becomes fine.
  5. Mold the dough until shape becomes round then put back in the mixing bowl. Cover the mixing bowl with damp cloth and let the dough rise for at least 1 hour
  6. Put the dough back to the flat surface and divide into 4 equal parts using a dough slicer
  7. Roll each part until it forms a cylindrical shape
  8. Slice the cylindrical dough diagonally (These slices will be the individual pieces of the pandesal)
  9. Roll the sliced dough over the breadcrumbs and place in a baking tray with wax paper (makes sure to provide gaps between doughs as this will rise later on)
  10. Leave the sliced dough with breadcrumbs in the tray for another 10 to 15 minutes to rise
  11. Pre heat the oven at 375 degrees fahrenheit for 10 minutes
  12. Put the tray with dough in the oven and bake for 15 minutes
  13. Turn off the oven and remove the freshly baked pandesal.
  14. Serve hot. Share and enjoy!
