Pandesal Recipe

Ingredients:
4 cups of top flour
1/2 cup of granulated sugar
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of bread crumbs
5 tablespoons of melted butter
1 tablespoon of cooking oil
1 fresh egg
1 1/2 cup of fresh milk
1 sachet(11grams) of active dry yeast

Directions:
1.  Dissolve 1 sachet of active dry yeast in warm fresh milk. Wait for 10-15 minutes until the yeast sets in.
2. Combine all dry ingredients - flour, sugar, salt - and mix well.
3. Once yeast, milk mixture is ready, combine all remaining ingredients - melted butter, cooking oil, egg, yeast mixture - to the flour mixture.
4. Knead the dough until consistency is fine. You may use electric mixer with dough hook for faster kneading.
5. Apply oil in your hand, mold the dough to a rounded shape and place in a mixing bowl. Cover with damp cloth or plastic wrap and allow dough to rise for at least 45 minutes to 1 hour.
6. On a floured flat surface, take the dough(which by now doubled or tripled its size) portion it into four and roll each part to a cylindrical shape. Slice the dough diagonally to smaller pieces according to your preferred pandesal size.
7. Mold each piece to a rounded shape. You can also place your favourite filling like cheese,  chocolate, corned beef etc but plain pandesal is also a show stealer. Roll each piece in bread crumbs.
8. Prepare the baking tray with parchment paper and arranged the sliced dough in the tray, once all the sliced dough are placed on the tray, sprinkle more bread crumbs on each dough.
9. Cover the baking tray with plastic wrap and allow the dough to rise for another 10-15 minutes.

These babies are ready to pop in the oven.
10. At this point you can pre-heat the oven at 375 f / 190 c for 10 minutes.
11. Place the baking tray with dough pieces in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
12. Finally serve and enjoy the freshly baked pandesal with or without coffee!

Bon appetit!
Pandesal party!
