Yes folks, I make my own pandesal!

A little intro:

Pandesal (Spanish: pan de sal, literally "salt bread") is a rounded bread usually eaten by Filipinos.[1] It is a bread made of flour, eggs, lard, yeast, sugar, and salt.

It's definitely not good for the waistlines but you can also make it using wheat flour to make it healthier. I would like to share you the recipe that my friend gave me. It's definitely a keeper...

1 cube butter (equivalent to 1/2 cup of butter)

2 eggs

2 packages of yeast

1 tsp salt

3/4 cup sugar

1 Tbsp oil

1 cup milk

3/4 cup lukewarm water for yeast

6 cups flour

Mix flour, sugar and salt. Melt yeast in 3/4 cup lukewarm water and add 1/2 tsp sugar. Beat eggs and pour over flour mixture and mix well. Then pour yeast over flour mixture and mix thoroughly. Then pour the melted butter with milk over flour mixture. Mix thoroughly and add oil. Knead well. Let it rise for 2 hours then punch once. Knead a little bit and let it rise again for 1 hour. Punch it again, cut into sizes and let it rise again to double the size in room temperature. Then bake it at 325 C/ or 350 C.

You're very welcome sis, make sure that you use the real butter. Some people use margarine to make it more on the healthier side but for me there's a big difference on the taste.
