Staple Filipino bread

Top Review by Chef Netteski

Now I can make my own pandesal and make it more healthier by not adding margarine or shortening on it since they contain an excessive amount of arteficial fat, which is the transfat or the synonymous word for it is hydrogenated fat. Better use the butter, at least it's natural and the lesser evil compared to transfat. :) Thanks for posting.
