So i get extra inquiries lately relating to my palms on courses and sure, there’s nonetheless a pandemic and extra optimistic circumstances have been reported currently so of us, as a lot as i actually wish to educate you, it’s not taking place anytime quickly.

It’s so unhappy. I miss speaking to individuals who had been mirror pictures of the NEWBIE baker me, approach again oh pricey, it’s embarrassing to say, mga 30 some years in the past. My deal with on baking was examined on actually fireplace and range! I bear in mind my Aunt’s oven and turbo broiler as she bakes one thing that appears like a cake however does not style like one. Hahaha.

So sure, she has an oven however they by no means used it for anything aside from hen. Nothing else. I used to be an adolescent minding my very own enterprise however had some free time and saved up cash to purchase components so i purchased a Betty Crocker cake combine. It stated within the package deal that i could make cupcakes out of it, and since i do not see any cake pans however muffin tins solely (my aunt used it for Puto), i baked my very first cupcakes!!!

Yehey, it was profitable. I imply, first time ever to make use of an oven and it was completely yummy! I did not know my brother gave some to her girlfriend. The next day, he gave me the identical cake combine and components and requested me to bake some extra.


I wish to skip this a part of my youth. It was traumatizing sufficient that i believe i prevented wanting on the oven for the remainder of my school years…significantly, i hated each little bit of what appears like a muffin pan. I for the lifetime of me can’t bear in mind what went improper. For years i might ask myself every so often, what precisely i did that made the cupcakes changed into 5 day previous biscuits. Rock onerous inedible. 

The entire batch went to waste, i suppose what made it extra disturbing was i wished to impress my brother’s girlfriend and it did not work out. Hiyang hiya ako sa kuya ko, generally nagtatago ako para hindi ko siya makita. Nakakaiyak talaga.

I believe the subsequent time i baked once more was a few years later, graduate na ako ng school or possibly graduating. This identical brother introduced me a mini oven from Oman the place he was working and that i began making Cream Puffs, Brownies, Cookies. It was small however greater than our common toaster oven. Subsequent and this i bear in mind, i used to be already working in OB Montessori at the moment when i attempted my hand on baking breads…

Okay, this half alone deserves an entire quantity as a result of so far as i can bear in mind, i used up a couple of sack of flour which i relish to at the present time, as a result of a sack in these days value solely P400.00 😊😊😊. I can write each bread i baked if i’ve to however nah, what’s vital is what i realized and the way i used that data. 

I suppose that is the explanation why my e-book has been an inspiration to many budding bakers on the market, i actually admire your suggestions.

Again to the Pandemic baking, my sister requested me what a Common Dough is. I stated, i do not name it Common however Fundamental dough. To name it Common means, ALL KINDS OF BREADS CAN BE MADE OUT OF THIS DOUGH, which is unimaginable.

For instance, a Pandesal dough which i educate could be known as ONE BASIC DOUGH, which you should utilize to make not less than 12 to fifteen totally different sorts of breads, it is determined by what you as a bakery supervisor can provide you with.

You should use this primary dough to make; Malunggay Pandesal, Kamote Pandesal, Tuna Pandesal,Corned Beef pandesal, Dinner Rolls, Loaf Bread, Hamburger Buns, Hotdog Buns, Spanish Bread, Pan De Ciosa, Pan De Limon, Mongo Bread, Cinnamon Rolls (cheaper model), Ensaimada (with margarine and sugar model), Pan De Coco and an entire lot extra. 


The formulation for a particular ensaimada with numerous egg yolks and butter is totally different. The formulation for a baguette or French Bread, in addition to for Focaccias and Pizza Crusts can be totally different so i don’t use the time period Common dough. I desire utilizing the phrase Fundamental, one dough many variations (please see archive). That is what most bakeries do, combine an entire 25 kg sack of flour and create as many variations as attainable.

Under are just some examples, though i restrict myself to 4 variations since i do not need a helper lately. Additionally since i ship about 70% of my breads to my sister, my batch is often 1.5 kg so generally i could make as much as 5 variations kung sinisipag ako..hahaha.

Right here you’ll be able to see i made Pandesal within the pan, Loaf bread, Cinnamon Rolls and Dinner Rolls with cheese inside and a candy buttery topping. 4 variations, totally different make-up as we name it, however simply ONE DOUGH.

My favourite, sayang isa lang ginawa ko. I chopped up some recent Rosemary leaves, scattered it within the dough with some Rum soaked raisins and it was so good!!! The sweetness of the plump raisins mixed with the herb is nice as a stand alone slice for snacks or you’ll be able to toast them with a pat of butter.


This is one other one, ( you simply have to discover ways to make 1 dough guys, and you may make all these yourselves) of my favourite and my niece’s too. Combine sugar and butter collectively and place it on a piping bag. If you wish to add vanilla, that is advantageous too.

Spherical some dough, 25 to 30 grams every and flatten. Place cubes of cheese inside. If you would like it buttery, use frozen cubes of butter and work quick.

Pipe the sugar and butter combination on high earlier than baking and there it’s…. for many who don’t like their bread candy, depart this half out…

If there’s a variation that’s all the time PRESENT each time i bake, it’s this one. Winner on a regular basis, kahit each week mo na ginagawa, they may nonetheless textual content or ship you a message saying they liked the cinnamon rolls. I’ve diminished the quantity of sugar and syrup on this one since i do not wish to be part of their Metformin popping dilemma so simply sufficient sweetness to make it via the day… 

Be inventive, use totally different pans however ensure that the pan isn’t too giant or too small or it will not look fairly like this. 

If you wish to be taught even 1 primary dough, get a duplicate of my e-book for now…

To those that dream of baking their very own bread sometime, you are able to do it. So long as you may have the time and endurance, with the assistance of my e-book, i assure that you’ll not undergo what i went via 😂
