HOT PANDESAL (FILIPINO BUNS)

Place in breadmaker the following ingredients:

1 cup water

1/2 cup oil

2 eggs

1 tsp. salt

1/2 cup sugar

4 1/4 cups bread machine flour

1 tbsp. breadmaker yeast (put this last)

BREADMAKER PROCEDURE:

Set breadmaker cycle to Knead, & First Rise. Take dough out when cycle is over. Cut the dough in half. Cut each half into 3 lenghtwise & cut each row to approximately 2 inch. Roll each piece in fine breadcrumbs. Turn the side of cut piece arond so the sides will be on the top. Place on Cookie sheet baking tray. Makes about 30-36 rolls depending on your cutting size preference too. Place cookie sheet in room temperature oven to rise overnight or until it almost doubles in size.

Bake in the morning or after more than 2 1/2 hours at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 8-12 minutes.

MANUAL METHOD:

WITHOUT the bread machine IS the original recipe...

If you have no bread maker here is what you do first: you have to melt the yeast first in warm water separately (maybe half cup of the total 1 cup water needed) so you mix all the rest of the ingredient together, lastly the yeast water & knead by hand for 20 mins! then place dough in an oiled plastic bag then tie it to seal the air in-the dough will grow inside ur dark oven- twice as big.. you punch the dough to release the air when you see it rise twice its original size and now u divide into 4 parts... roll to become long doughs & while rolling in bread crumbs you cut them into pandesal size!.. arrange in tray.. let it rise again inside the oven until it doubles then bake after!! 375F for 11 mins!
if you want sweeter buns u maximize sugar to 1 cup (thats how we like it!)

Also u can use wheat flour.

QUICK METHOD:

While cutting & rolling buns in bread crumbs, heat the oven at 200F degrees for about 8 minutes & turn oven off . Place cooke sheet in warmed oven for approximate 1- 1/2 hours or untill rolls have doubled in size.

Bake at 375 F degrees for 8-12 minutes.

I ALWAYS PUT IT ON THE TOP RACK.

Enjoy! Yum! Yum!
