WHAT YOU NEED AND WHAT YOU CAN USE INSTEAD

  • All-Purpose Flour: I used all-purpose flour to make these ube cheese pandesal rolls. If you want a gluten-free ube cheese pandesal you can easily substitute the flour with a gluten-free flour blend or even almond flour, but keep in mind the texture and rise of the bread will be different.
  • Sugar: This recipe is made with granulated sugar, You can replace the sugar with any granulated sweetener of your choice as a straight replacement. Honey or maple syrup also make great substitutes for these rolls, plus they taste great.
  • Yeast: You can use fresh yeast or instant yeast instead of active dry yeast, they all serve the same purpose.
  • Milk: You can use any type of milk, like almond or oat milk, but it’s important to note that different types of milk may affect the taste and texture of these rolls.
  • Ube: If you don’t have access to fresh ube you can use sweet potato or yam, they will not have the same color but they will have a similar taste. You can also use dry ube, you can substitute the mashed ube with 1/4 cup of the ube powder mixed with 3/4 cup of hot water to reconstitute it.
  • Cheese: You can use any type of cheese you like, but it’s important to note that different types of cheese will affect the flavor and texture of the bread.

Good To Know

Use the right type of flour: Using all-purpose flour is recommended for this recipe, as it gives the bread the right texture and rise. However, you can use other types of flour, such as bread flour or whole wheat flour, but it’s important to note that this may affect the final texture and rise of the bread.

Keep the dough warm: Yeast needs warmth to activate, so make sure the dough is kept in a warm place while it rises. You can place the dough in a warm oven or near a heat source to ensure it rises properly.

Knead the dough well: Kneading the dough is important for developing the gluten, which gives the bread its structure. Knead the dough for at least 10 minutes to ensure it is smooth and elastic before rising.

Let the dough rise twice: After shaping the dough into rolls, let them rise for a second time before baking. This will give the rolls a nice and fluffy texture.

Egg wash: brushing the rolls with beaten egg before baking will give them a nice golden color and a glossy finish.

Adjust baking time: The baking time may vary depending on your oven, so it’s important to keep an eye on the rolls as they bake. They should be golden brown when they are done.

Experiment with different cheeses: This recipe calls for cheddar or mozzarella, but you can use any cheese you like. Experiment with different types of cheese to find your perfect combination of flavors.

Let it cool down: Remove the pandesal from the oven and let them cool down on a wire rack before serving. This will allow the bread to finish cooking and the crust will be nice and crisp.
