Hi Kawaling Pinoy readers! Sanna here and I am back with another special recipe fo you!
When Lalaine told me she’s planning a pandesal series and needs my help, I readily jumped to the challenge! Pandesal is the quintessential Filipino bread and I’m excited to showcase it in many unique varieties.
This series has been a total fun project and so far, we have ube pandesal, red velvet, and pandan up on the blog with more coming soon! If you have a specific flavor in mind, let us know in the comments below.

They’re a decadent treat everyone would love for breakfast, dessert, or anytime snack.
Step by step instructions
Step 1: Make The Dough
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine yeast, warm water, and 1 tablespoon of the sugar. Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes or until foamy. Make sure the temperature of the water for proving the yeast is between 105 to 115 F. Extremely hot water can kill the yeast that leavens the dough.
- Add the milk, butter, eggs, the remaining sugar, salt, and cocoa powder. Stir everything to combine.
- Attach the dough hook to the mixer and add 2 and 1/4 cups of flour. Starting on low speed, mix the ingredients until the dry ingredients are moistened.
- Increase the speed and continue to mix until the ingredients are fully incorporated.
