How to Bake Pandesals


Pandesal is the name of a popular Filipino bread. The name comes from Pan de Sal, the Spanish phrase meaning salt bread. The name is misleading because pandesal is actually a sweet bread. The bread has a coating of breadcrumbs and Filipinos consume Pandesal as a healthy snack with coffee.

Things You'll Need

  • Mixing bowl
  • Air tight container
  • 4-1/2 cups whole meal flour
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1 tsp. yeast dissolved in warm water
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • Knife
  • Breadcrumbs
  • Baking tray
  • Oven
  • Mix all the ingredients except the breadcrumbs in a bowl to make a soft dough.

  • Put the dough in an air tight container and leave until the dough becomes double in size.

  • Roll the dough in the shape of a thick rope.

  • Cut the rope into equal pieces. You should get about 20 equal bun sized pieces.

  • Put breadcrumbs in the mixing bowl. Roll each piece of dough in breadcrumbs and place on a greased baking tray or baking tray lined with parchment paper.

  • Heat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Put the baking tray in the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. The top of the pandesal rolls should appear golden brown.

  • Take the rolls out of the oven when the tops are golden brown and cool the rolls before eating
