No breakfast or snack time is complete without a serving of freshly baked pandesal. We can spread our favorite jam, sandwiched a fried hot-dog on it or simply enjoy it as it is dunk on a hot coffee or hot chocolate.. Truly a versatile bread!
Pandesal as the name implies means salted bread (pan de sal) a Mexican/ Spanish origin. Although the filipino bread rolls are more sweet than their Mexican counterparts. Baking bread is always great as nothing beats freshly baked bread in the house. But let me remind you, that baking is not an easy task. Anyway, the more you practice the better your pandesal gets: more fluffy and not dense at all. Well if all goes wrong, do not forget that we always have a nearby bakery to count on !! But it's so much fun to make them at home ...
