Pan de Sal

Pandesal Recipe
Pandesal or Bread of Salt (which is also the title of a popular short story written by NVM Gonzales) is probably the most popular bread in the Philippines.
Pandesal is the favorite “agahan or almusal” (breakfast food) of most Filipinos.
Pandesal can eaten plain or with filling.
It is best to have it while freshly hot from the oven.
Common fillings or palaman for pandesal are: Cheese pimiento, a slice of cheese,guava jam, coconut jam, butter, and liver spread.
In the Philippines, most bake shops and bakeries sell Pandesal.
Sometimes, this is sold in rolling stores (usually a honking bicycle with a big box on the back).
When purchasing from a neighborhood bakery, be sure to be there before 8 in the morning because the supply runs out after that time.
Pandesal can also be eaten as it is.
I like having pandesal along with hot coffee.
I am one of those people who loves to dip it in hot black coffee.

Pandesal Recipe
2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups bread flour
½ cup white sugar
5 tbsp butter, melted
1 tsp baking powder
1¼ cup fresh milk, warm
1 pouch rapid rise yeast
1 tsp salt
1 cup bread crumbs
1 piece raw egg
1 tbsp cooking oil
Combine the yeast, sugar, and warm milk and stir until the yeast and sugar are fully dissolved
In the mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients starting with the flour then the sugar, salt, and baking powder .
Mix well by stirring
Add the egg, butter, cooking oil, and yeast-sugar-milk mixture in the mixing bowl with the dry ingredients then mix again until a dough is formed.
Use your clean hands to effectively mix the ingredients.
In a flat surface, knead the dough until the texture becomes fine.
For faster and easier kneading, you may use a Stand Mixer with dough hook.
Mold the dough until shape becomes round then put back in the mixing bowl.
Cover the mixing bowl with damp cloth and let the dough rise for at least 1 hour
Put the dough back to the flat surface and divide into 4 equal parts using a dough slicer
Roll each part until it forms a cylindrical shape
Slice the cylindrical dough diagonally (These slices will be the individual pieces of the pandesal)
Roll the sliced dough over the breadcrumbs and place in a baking tray with wax paper (makes sure to provide gaps between dough as this will rise later on)
Leave the sliced dough with breadcrumbs in the tray for another 10 to 15 minutes to rise
Pre-heat the oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes
Put the tray with dough in the oven and bake for 15 minutesPan De The Radical says 
Make Double – Freeze them or Bread Bin them or Leave them out for hungry mouths and watch them disappear
