                                                                          ONE WEEK OLD PAN DE SAL

Learn how to make these breads using the Sponge and Dough method, get a copy of THE BAKING BREADS VIDEO if you want to learn this method. The secret is not really on the ingredients, but on the METHOD USED TO MAKE THE BREADS.

***UPDATE: 14 DAYS NOW, I MADE THIS BATCH JULY 25, if you followed me on my tweeter, you might have read my post regarding this. I baked the breads in time for my mother's trip to Canada July 27. 

ONE WEEK AND NOW TWO WEEKS, without preservatives just plain good old formula of Pan de Sal.  It was amazing to see how even the handling of the bread can contribute to your breads' shelf life, the formula for one should be balanced and i ate one of the three pieces left last night at 9 pm while watching the Olympics and it was still so soft. NO MOLDS (amag), not dry, not brittle and hard, still soft like you baked it on the same day itself.

Read more story on the Pan de Sal cut

Get the free formula of this Pan de Sal together with your two other recipes of Pan de Sal in the eBook upon purchase. Find out how this Pan de Sal lasted longer, it was a new formula i tried recently, a shift from the normal recipe i used to make.

Update: My nephew John and I made the same bread before i left for Manila last September 2014 and sent half to my aunt in Chicago. The Pandesal stayed fresh and without molds for three weeks and we used the same ingredients. It was not too cold since it was only September, still feeling summer but not too hot either. We used the sponge and dough method same brand of ingredients... Just amazing.

Common misconceptions on Bread making:

*doughs need not be proofed, they are baked right after shaping. If you do this, your breads will be as tough as a rock.

*you can mix the dough just by hand, in under 10 minutes. Hmmm, this is really what bugs me when i watch tv shows. Doughs are kneaded by hand, very very stiff, in under 10 minutes, placed in a bowl, proofed and then shaped. As simple as that. Does good tv time, but not quality bread that you can eat for days.

*why most breads in the Panaderias are drop dead hard once they cool, dry and too dense.

*do you know why using dough brakes and dough rollers reduce your profit to about 30%?

*you can proof anywhere, just place a towel, cloth or plastic on top of the dough. Not! The plastic, linen or towel will stick during proofing and will ruin your dough.

READ THIS LINK TO KNOW HOW TO GET STARTED IN BAKING BREADS, a great insight into what to do first when baking breads is still just an idea.

Ms. Shirley,

Thanks, sa ebook marami na akong natutunan at masasarap ang recipe ninyo.  Kaya lang may ilan pa akong mga tanong.

1. May kasama po bang video yong ebook?

2. May Kitchen Aid ako kaya lang ang 1 kilo ay nahihirapan siya.  Ang 8 kilo Heavy Duty Mixer ba ay ok na bilhin kung magpapa order lang naman ako sa mga kakilala at magpapatinda sa mga tindahan?  Bale sa bahay ko lang ito gagamitin wala akong puwesto.

3. Paano ba mag proofing ng 8 kilo batch na di sabay sabay.  ang capacity ng oven ko ay 80-90 pcs. lang.  Di ko pa ma imagine ang planning sa actual at lalo na ibat iba pang klase ng tinapay.  Kailangan ba ilagay ang iba sa refrigerator?


Ooops, you really have a problem there when it comes to proofing. Find out ano ang minimum load ng mixer mo. Yung 20 quarts ko, di nya kaya ang 600 grams, pero 700 grams okay so ito ang minimum load ko. This is what you work with, do not mix the whole 8 kilograms kasi di mo kakayanin ang make-up, ang proofing, ang baking ng sabay sabay. Tama ka, you need a retarder, parang chiller kung gusto mong sabay sabay but this will cost money.

I will send you a Siopao video for free but you need a gmail account or google+ to watch it, medyo mahaba kasi so youtube lang siya.
When you buy the ebook or attend my class, you can ask me any questions you like, you can get free consultation anytime throught texts or emails. Problem with your mixer, your oven, your proofing, etc., brand of flour, vanilla etc., simply email me and i will answer you anytime free of charge. You do not get that if you get a pirated copy. I am very keen on answering emails so keep them coming.

 If you happen to see anyone sharing my ebook elsewhere illegally, please let me know) Thank you. 


 Start with the favorite Pandesal, Spanish Bread, Dinner Rolls,Soft Buns etc., and then start creating variations such as the one below.

Visit my blog to see my 20-quart mixer


***Master the procedures from weighing, mixing, checking the gluten, etc...

Ebook recipes are standardized, no need to test and waste ingredients experimenting to perfect your Cinnamon Rolls, Pan de Sal, Hamburger and Hotdog Buns, Ensaimada  and many others. Just follow the recipes, read through the instructions, memorize the photos and what or how the dough looks like and you will be on your way to creating your very own specialty breads.

From Elaine Bellido, student March 2013 (sorry did not get your text)

Hi ms shirley. Texted you but i guess you left na at that time. Glad you made it back home safe inspite of all the hassles you went through. I'm just want to make kwento that i made siopao for my family since they haven't tasted it and was raving about it and alas they all love it. You see my brother sells siopao and siomai and gets it from david's teahouse.the funny thing is, my 11 year old niece ate 3 pcs that i made in 1 sitting and said that she doesn't like the siopao that my brother sells...hahaha. But i don't to push my kitchen aid..
All the praises are for you ms. Shirley. You are the one who  devoted your time with the recipes... We are merely followers and someday we hope we will make you proud. Take care and thank you.

P.s. Making the breads this week for i got na my digital scale. Not the one like u have(P3300 at sin kian) but at least it has grams.

Update: To Elaine, thank you for calling a day before you leave for Canada. Good luck and sana nga magkita tayo sa Canada even if you are so far away in Alberta.

You can create as many variations as you want once you learn the fundamentals of yeast dough baking. You can move the sugar, egg, fat (butter or margarine) up and down, omit the eggs, add whole wheat, substitute semolina or kamut flour etc., I am using brown sugar instead of refined white sugar for its flavor and color, you can use muscovado or raw sugar too if you like.

MALUNGGAY PANDESAL will be taught in class,. Most requested recipe to add in my hands on class. There is a Malunggay tree in front of the house and so there is no problem, we just pick the leaves, wash them and voila! Malunggay Pandesal. Some even crave for more Malunggay in the dough which is good because this veggie is packed with anti-oxidants and vitamins.

My version is according to my students mas masarap because it does not taste like damo or grassy. Find out how you make a beter version of the popular Malunggay Pandesal. It does not have to taste that bad.

 Timing is essential. Practice makes perfect. As tiny as i am, i can load this oven and make batch after batch as long as there is dough to bake.

I love this oven and frankly speaking, my students are impressed. For only 12 to 15 thousand, you can own one these days. I got mine for only P7 thousand way back 1998 and it still works. Bake 1 kg of Pandesal for only 15 minutes. I bake all sorts with it, cookies, chiffon cakes, cupcakes (48 pcs) in 25 minutes, pies etc., The only thing it is not good for is if you want to bake and sell Pizzas because you need a really hot oven for that. The walls of the oven warps when i crank the heat up to 500 F which is what i want for the pizza plus the baking stone. Not good. You need a really good pizza oven to make a really good pizza, not this one.
