Learn how to make this panaderia staple at home

pandesal 2


Makes 2-3 dozens

2 tsps Yeast

1 1/2 cups Warm water

2 Tbsps Sugar

1 tsp Salt

2 Tbsps Shortening

4 1/2 – 5 cups Sifted MAYA All-Purpose Flour

Breadcrumbs, as needed

  1. Dissolve yeast in ¼ cup of water.
  2. In a bowl, combine the remaining water, sugar, salt and shortening. Add 4 cups of the flour and the yeast mixture. Mix well then transfer to a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic. Use the remaining flour for dusting the table and your hands if the dough gets sticky. Place dough on a greased bowl, cover and let it rise until double in bulk.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°F/177°C. Place risen dough on a floured surface. Flatten with your hands to form a rectangle about 16 x 3 inches. Starting at one end, roll up the dough with the right hand while sealing with the left hand to form a cylindrical strip of dough. Roll in breadcrumbs. Let it rest for 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. Cut dough into pieces about 1 ½-inch thick. Place in baking sheet cut side up. Let the dough pieces rise until light, for approximately 1 hour. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
