Food for thought: Ube Pandesal

Ube Pandesal is one of the famous Filipino Breads and mostly eaten for breakfast or merienda. Pandesal can be plain or flavored like ube/taro or matcha or pandan flavor. You can also find Pandesal with fillings like Ube Cheese Pandesal. It is very soft and tasty with just a pat of butter and I recommend to eat it warm and fresh from oven. Otherwise a day old or more is still great, simply warm it in the microwave for about 10 to 12 seconds. Just like any other bread, it can be stored in a freezer for a month or two.

Recipe: 12 pieces


  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp ube/yam flavoring
  • 3 1/2 tsps instant yeast
  • 1 1/2 cup warm milk
  • 1/2 butter melted
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs


  • Combine well flour, yeast and salt in a big bowl or mixer,
  • Add milk and butter to above mixture and mix well.
  • Add eggs and continue to mix.
  • Knead for about 5 minutes
  • Let the dough rise until double.
  • Knead for another 5 minutes.
  • Cut into 12 portions and form into round or oblong.
  • Roll onto the breadcrumbs.
  • Let it set for 10 minutes.
  • Bake at 375F for 15 minutes.
  • Serve warm with butter.

Voila! Enjoy…

I love the nature especially the oceans and the smell of the rainforest. I travel a lot with my daughter and would like to share the places that we’ve been. I do cook and bake not as a professional one but just as a simple mom and I would like to share them with you all.
