Pan de Sal Without Bread Machine
Pandesal is a Filipino favorite. These soft bread rolls can be eaten at any time of the day!
active dry yeast
unsalted butter at room temperature
all purpose flour or more as necessary
Dissolve the yeast in ¼ cup warm water in a big bowl. Let stand for 10 minutes, and then stir well.
In a bowl, combine milk, butter, eggs, sugar and salt.
Add milk mixture and 2 cups flour into the yeast mixture. Beat with a wooden spoon or electric mixer until smooth. Gradually stir in remaining flour, adding more if necessary.
Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface. Knead dough, adding flour as necessary, until dough is smooth, elastic and no longer sticky (around 10 minutes).
Place dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let rise for 1 hour or until double in size.
Transfer dough to a lightly floured board. Divide dough into 24 pieces. Shape each piece into a ball, roll in breadcrumbs and place in a baking pan lined with parchment paper.
Cover with a cloth and let rise for at least one hour or until almost double in size.
Bake in 225 F oven for 20 minutes and then increase the oven temperature to 325 F while keeping the bread in the oven. Bake for another 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve and enjoy!
