What Is a Good Pandesal Recipe From Panlasang Pinoy?

To make Panlasang Pinoy's recipe for pandesal, make a bread dough with yeast, sugar, milk, flour and baking powder. Include egg, butter and oil, and season the dough with sugar. Form the dough into buns, and roll them over breadcrumbs. Allow them to rise, and bake them.

Mix together 1 pouch of rapid-rise yeast with 1 tablespoon of sugar and 1 1/4 cups of warm milk until the sugar dissolves. In a separate bowl, mix 2 cups of bread flour with 1/2 cup of white sugar less 1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon each of salt and baking powder. Add 1 raw egg, 5 tablespoons of melted better, 1 tablespoon of cooking oil and the yeast mixture to the dry ingredients, and mix well until a dough forms. Knead the dough on a flat surface until the texture becomes fine. Form the dough into a round shape, set it back in the mixing bowl, cover it with a damp towel, and allow it to rise for one hour.

Set the dough back onto the flat surface, and divide it into four equal parts. Roll the dough pieces into cylinders, and slice each diagonally. Roll the slices in 1 cup of breadcrumbs, and set them on a baking tray lined with wax paper. Allow them to rise for another 15 minutes, and bake them for 15 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
