What I’m sharing here is my version of the hot pandesal we ate for breakfast as kids and even for merienda (snack time), with hot chocolate or warm milk. I love food with ube flavor thus incorporating it with my favorite breakfast bread. I know there are many pan de sal recipes online but hope you give this a try and let me know what you think. Thank you! Serve hot with or without spread/butter of your choice. For leftovers, warm in a toaster oven before serving for better taste.
Pour milk into a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in the microwave until warm, about 1 minute.
Place butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in the microwave until melted, about 30 seconds.
Place eggs in a bowl; cover with warm water for 1 minute. Drain and crack into the bowl; beat lightly with a fork.
Place warm milk, melted butter, eggs, salt, bread flour, purple yam powder, and bread machine yeast into a bread machine in the order listed. Run “Dough” cycle.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Transfer dough to a greased bowl. Deflate dough with your fist. Cut into 24 oval pieces. Roll each piece into a ball.
Pour bread crumbs into a shallow plate; roll balls of dough in bread crumbs until coated. Arrange close together, slightly touching, in an ungreased baking pan.
Bake in the preheated oven until tops are golden brown, about 15 minutes.

The quality of the flour could make a real deal to your bread. Different makers do vary. Extra-strong or Canadian flours, which are naturally higher in gluten, may give you a better rise than standard dough flours – especially if you’re making wholemeal bread , which doesn’t always rise as well as clear bread.
To make this in a breadmaker , add all the menus to your breadmaker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
A bread first rising can be done in the fridge overnight . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great timesaver , as you can start it yesterday , then clear it off the next day.
