Notes

Please watch the video for instructions: Pandesal Ube Recipe
WHAT YEAST TO USE IN THIS PANDESAL RECIPE? Use active dry yeast. Don't use instant yeast
ADDITIONAL TIP: Preheat oven int its lowest setting, for my oven it is 125 F for 2 minutes then turn it off . I use this as the warm place where I can keep rise my dough for two hours. I call it “kinda hot” place for my dough to rise.
For the cheese, I stacked four cheese singles and divide it to 8
