Filipino Spanish Bread is a soft, sweet, buttery bread, I enjoy eating. It is sometimes eaten for breakfast or anytime of the day.
The bread dough is similar to Pandesal, a popular and the most common breakfast bread eaten in the Philippines. It consist of flour, eggs, yeast, sugar, salt, water, milk, and butter. Pandesal is similar to a dinner roll.
The Spanish bread filling is a mixture of butter, brown sugar, and bread crumbs.
After dough ingredients is mixed together, allow dough to rise for an hour and 30 min. Cut dough and roll into balls, flatten each ball lengthwise with a rolling pin, smear in filling, roll like a cigar, then roll in bread crumbs before baking.
Before baking cover uncooked fillied Spanish bread for another 30 minutes before baking. After the long wait, what comes out of the oven is a soft, sweet, fluffy, bread filled with deliciousness.
