Pandesal – Filipino Bread

Pandesal - Filipino Bread

Pandesal is a very popular, classic Filipino yeast-raised bread in the Philippines. Pan de Sal means salt bread in Spanish but it is actually sweeter than its Spanish name.

The basic ingredients are eggs, flour, sugar and salt.

I read in a book that it is not Spanish in origin but Portuguese. It is traditionally served during breakfast which can be accompanied by almost everything like cheese, sardines, jams, spaghetti, fried noodles, and even ice cream and of course I love to dip my hot Pandesal into my coffee.

That’s the Filipino way of eating Pandesal.
