Ebook Discount

I am relenting once again to numerous requests from Kababayans in far flung Cavite, Batangas, laguna etc., I know you guys want to learn how to at least make a pandesal and sell them, so here it is, i am offering a discount to the Ebook, you can now purchase the formula tested recipes for only $30.00, not $55 or $45 but just $30.00. You will need at least 2 weeks to browse over the recipes, this guy from Bulacan who is Italian managed to bake his own Pandesal and now selling breads out of the Ebook alone. Go to my website and start learning how to make Pandesal, Ensaimada, Monay, Soft buns etc,. I guarantee you that you will be able to sell your breads before Christmas.

Speaking of Christmas, this will probably my first Christmas where i will not be able to sell my gift boxes. Bawal dito sa New York mag tinda ng baked goods at home. You cannot bake at home and sell them. Only 11 states allow that. I think they should slacken their rules so they can help those who are out of work to get something small started at home, don't you think? Unlike in our country, we can sell anything we want from our kitchen. Bawal dito. You will be penalized, in fact, i read somewhere that the authorities hunt down these home-based business. tsk tsk tsk. There are so many Americans out there who want to bake at home and sell them on a regular basis since the cost of renting and capitalization is enormous. Mailing the goodies is easy, ang ganda ng mail system here, excellent i would say.


My orders would come the exact date the supplier promises. No delays, sometimes before noon the package arrives on your doorstep. In my case, my post office is just 4 blocks away!!! Sayang di ba? I could bake specialty items such as my cinnamon rolls, ensaimadas, spanish breads, and my cookies pero hindi pwede. Pati ang may ari ng house where you live, will be penalized. Oh my!


So you guys in the Philippines are lucky, most of the students who attended my classes do not even get a permit but are selling for years, except the ones in Marikina and Makati. I also had one student from Batangas who was visited by a Sanitation Inspection when his competitor reported him to the City Hall. Apparently, he was outselling him after our session, putting up fresher versions of the pan de coco and spanish breads, his improved Pandesal caught his neighbor's eye and he got busted. Ala eh!


I am still in contact with some of my students dating back 2003 to the very last ones i had before i left the country. I must say that beyond what i earned out of teaching the hands on class is the joy of friendship i got out of this passion from bread making. I do not advertise my facebook, but somehow they find me!!! Thank you guys!!!

3rd Class Flour, What's It All About

For starters i cannot make this Hard Monay if i did not bring any 3rd class flour or soft weak flour to New York. Once i ran out of 3rd class and tried Cake Flour, it turned bad, do not even think of using All Purpose, it will be soft but not chewy as this one made with yes, 3rd class indeed. So third class is hard to find here in the US if you will use that term. You have to say or look for soft wheat flour, that's it, not hard wheat flour, not cake or All purpose but something in between these two. It is easy to find in the Phil., just ask your local bakery suppliers and they know it is Tercera. Tercera is not for bread, bakers use it basically for cookies, cakes and other pastries, but we bakers know how to create bread recipes using part of this flour with the bread flour or hard wheat flour. It makes a softer version of any of your fave breads, with a cheaper price tag. Plus if i own a bakery, i get to use the third class for my cakes and cookies, lowering my food cost i…

HOW TO MAKE A PUDDING, PINOY STYLE

ANY LEFTOVER BREADS, DRIED BREADS AS LONG AS THEY HAVE NO MOLDS IN THEM, YOU CAN USE THESE TO MAKE YOUR HOMESTYLE PUDDING.


MOIST BUT NOT DENSE, I MAKE THIS FOR MY MOTHER SINCE SHE LIKES SOFT FOODS AND SHE CANNOT CHEW ON THE CRUSTY BREADS AND COOKIES I REGULARLY BAKE. GOOD THING WE HAVE LEFTOVERS!!!! NO NUTS PLEASE!!!!

A GOOD PUDDING IS MADE USING A BAIN MARIE, PLACE THE PUDDING PAN ON A LARGER BAKING PAN WITH WATER AT THE BOTTOM. STEAM BAKE FOR 40 MINUTES OR UNTIL GOLDEN BROWN.

DO NOT FORGET TO GREASE THE BAKING DISH OR THE PUDDING WILL STICK A LITTLE, YOU WANT NICE CLEAN CUTS...


THE PUDDING PLACED ON A SQUARE DISH, PAT SOME BUTTER OR MARGARINE ON TOP IF YOU LIKE. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO STEAM BAKE RIGHT AWAY, YOU CAN ALLOW THE RAISINS TO SOAK FOR AN HOUR TO SOFTEN THEM.

ADDING RAISINS TO THE PUDDING GIVES IT A TWIST... YOU MAY ADD SOME DRIED CRANBERRIES ALSO.

ADD SUGAR TO THE MIXTURE OF BREAD, MILK AND EGGS. ADJUST THE SWEETNESS.


SHRED LEFTOVER BREADS AND SOAK WITH MILK AND BEATEN EGGS.

instant yeasts and active dry yeast in bread making

My first experience with yeast baking did not go well at first despite the many baking books i have in my collection( which were all wiped out by the typhoon Ondoy, sept 26, 2009). The most ridiculous thing is that in your attempt to proof the yeast, you actually just snuff the life out of it by using water that is too hot for the yeast to handle. So you throw it out and then try again. Later on, many years after, i found out from my teacher in class that i did not even have to do this, simply use tap water, add a teaspoon of sugar, then the yeast, stir and voila!!! Wait for the dough to bloom or froth and your done. This is if you are using active dry yeast. Instant means you simply dump it in the flour mix, no blooming necessary.

Shown here in these images, two types of yeasts, the active dry has to be bloomed first before using, then when the yeast froths, you can dump it into the mixing bowl.

The instant yeast on the other hand, is more convenient to use, i weigh it with the rest of…
