Whether it’s pandesal for coffee, chocolate cake for dessert, or a meaty empanada for brunch, you’ll never ever go wrong with pastries. I mean, Filipinos are in love with it, that’s why in every city or every barangay, there will always be local bakeries and also commercial bakeshops within.
And if we’re talking about pastries, Filipinos absolutely can’t get enough of one type of bread because of its delicious taste and flavor. Can you guess what it is? Ha, I’m sure that a lot of things came to your mind but I’m talking about the one and only, Ensaymadas. These yummy, fluffy, and cheesy pastries are no doubt fan favorites. And if you ask anyone out there what their favorite Filipino pastry is, I’m sure that the majority will answer “Ensaymadas”. And I’m also 100% positive that this may also be your favorite Filipino pastry!
Well, if that’s the case then I guess this is your lucky day. Because today, Panlasang Pinoy Recipes will teach us how to make our own version of their Ensaymada Recipe at home! So, are you ready? Let’s make some pastry you’ll never forget!
Let’s do it! It’s finally time to unleash the awesome baker in you. This is the perfect chance for you to master your baking skills as well because all of the cooking procedures are very easy to follow! Moreover, the ingredients can also be easily bought from local markers and nearby grocery stores so I’m sure that you won’t have any problem with it.
Alright! Before we start, here are all of the ingredients that we need. Of course, all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt, egg yolks, egg white, evaporated milk, and butter. And for the toppings, we’ll be needing white sugar, grated cheese, and more butter as well. See? I’m sure most of these ingredients are readily available in your pantry and refrigerators! Now that we’ve already got everything that we need, it’s time to bake some delicious ensaymada!
The first thing that we need to do is combine all of the dry ingredients in one clean mixing bowl. Make sure to strain the ingredients well to thoroughly refine and filter everything up. Keep on shifting the ingredients until you’re done then simply set the dry mixture aside. Next, it’s time to add the egg yolks, evaporated milk, and butter to the mixture. Mix everything thoroughly until all the ingredients are well-incorporated with each other and then set it aside. Then, it’s time to mix the egg whites! I recommend that you use a mixer to do this so it’ll be much easier. Keep on adding the egg whites until the mixture becomes fluffy. Then, gradually add the sugar until both of the ingredients are well combined. Now that the fluffy mixture and bread mixture is ready, it’s finally time to combine them! Just make sure to mix them slowly until they’re well combined, okay?
We’re almost done! Simply prepare the molders by brushing them with melted butter so that the mixture won’t stick. Then, pour the mixture into each of the molders and bake for at least 15 to 20 minutes. And finally, to make our ensaymadas even more delicious, add the toppings of butter, white sugar, and melted cheese. Of course, the cheesier, the better! So grate as much cheese as you want!
Voila! And just like that, you’ve already baked your own version of Ensaymada at home. I’m sure that all your loved ones, especially your kids, would love your newfound snack recipe. This one’s perfect for a quick bite at any time of the day. Oh, and if you make an extra effort, this is also a wonderful idea to start a small business!
