Am running this week’s blogging marathon with Pick an Asian countries, obviously i opted for Philipines which is a SouthEastern Asian Country. After Srilanka, am taking you all to Philipines and this country’s cuisine is quite unknown for me. Actually i want to explore this cuisine after trying this Pandesal. Though many of their ingredients arent that much easy to get if you are living far away from this Country still am planning to try some of their dishes with available ingredients. Most of their dishes are loaded with meats,seafoods, however some delightful dishes like Pandesal do exists in this cuisine. This bread is quite easy one to bake and definitely an incredible bread to enjoy at anytime of the day. We loved this bread very much as they are extremely soft and delicious.

1+1/2cups All purpose flour
1cup Bread flour
1tsp Instant yeast
50grams Butter (melted)
1/2tsp Baking powder
1/2cup Bread crumbs
Take the all purpose flour, bread flour, sugar, salt, yeast, baking powder in a bowl.
Meanwhile luke warm the milk, whisk the egg to the milk.
Now add the milk,melted butter to the flour mixture and knead everything as a smooth dough.
Grease a bowl with oil and drop the kneaded dough, wrap it and leave it in aside until they double their volume.
Once the dough gets doubled, punch it and drop them to a kitchen top.
Knead again for a while and divide the dough into 3-4 balls. Roll each balls as a cylindrical shape.
Slice the dough diagonally to make some balls,. Roll the sliced dough over the bread crumbs.
Place them on a baking tray lined with baking sheet. Let the dough aside for half an hour until they rise.
Preheat the oven to 350F, arrange the tray in middle rack of the oven and bake for 20-25inutes until the crust turns golden in colour.
Remove the tray and let the pandesal gets cool a bit.
Serve hot with butter or else with any other spreads.
