How to make your own pandesal at home

Have you ever wanted to make your own pandesal at home, but didn't know where to start? Then this one is for you!

I love pandesal. It's one of my favorite breakfast items. In fact, this classic Filipino bread is a favorite in households all over the country. I've always thought of making some before since I can bake a little (thanks, Google), but I just didn't know how to start.

But, if you've been following me on social media. You've probably seen me post about finally making my own pandesal! I'm glad I learned about Joy Of Baking All-in-one Pandesal Mix. It takes the guesswork out of baking. 

It's already pre-measured, so no more measuring is needed. Plus, it comes with free yeast inside. All you need to prepare is bread crumbs, cooking oil, water or milk, plus the tools to be used, which you probably already have at home. And, the process is so simple. Just mix the dry ingredients, wet, proof the dough and bake!

I have already made pandesal two times with this all-in-one pandesal mix. The first one was a fail. I had Brianna assist me, after pouring the mix into the bowl, we added the yeast. I saw Brianna mixing it so I then proceeded in adding the wet ingredients. 

Instead of using water, we used milk.

But after kneading the dough and proofing it, it didn't seem to rise! Guess what, she didn't entirely combine the yeast and the mix. LOL! If you think we only failed at that, I failed to correctly portion the dough. I made each piece so thick and big and did not adjust the temperature and time of baking. So the pandesal rolls ended up a bit wet inside, still edible though. Lol! Well, mistakes are part of learning. Right? Haha!

So, I tried again and this time, it was a success! Yay! I made sure the pandesal mix and yeast were mixed evenly and portioned the dough into smaller pieces. Some were actually bigger but I made sure to adjust the temperature and the time when I baked them.

This was the pandesal the second time I baked. The bigger pieces were
a bit burnt but they all taste good!

With this All-in-one pandesal mix, you can make delicious, fluffy pandesal without any of the fuss! Even busy moms can do it. So, if you're used to buying pandesal from the store, it's time to start making your own at home. Plus, they'll taste so much better than the store-bought kind because you can customize them however you want. With just a few simple ingredients and a little bit of time, you can have fresh, warm pandesal whenever you want. Your family will be glad you did!

Joy of Baking also has other variants that we have yet to try. The All-in-One Bread Mix, All-in-One and 4-in-1 Chocolate Fudge Mix! They are available in Waltermart Supermarkets, Prince Supermarkets, NCCC Supermarkets, and selected groceries and convenience stores nationwide!

If you do get to try them, let me know how it turns out. Happy baking!
