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
- Baking tray
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
