Pandesal is a popular bread in Phillipines. The unique identity is the bread crumbs on top. When you make them you can cut them and put them directly on to the tray than spending time on rolling them. They are really soft , fluffy and sweet in taste.
Sometimes I spend my time buying different types of breads form different bakeries and try making them at home by myself. This has become one of my hobbies already.
Sometimes the first attempt fails. I never discourage myself. Try again and again. I never upload or write a wrong recipe in my channel or in blogs. So you can trust my recipes.I have about 10 Phillipines friends. They all help me giving their ideas and cooking styles when we all get together.
