This Healthy Pandesal Should Be On Your Breakfast Table
Sourdough pandesal is a healthier take on a breakfast classic.
Sourdough bread has been gaining popularity in Metro Manila even before everyone at home made bread during the quarantine. Smaller panaderyas, home bakers, and restaurants have been churning out this artisanal bread with a slight tangy flavor for the past few years.
The taste (its slight sourness is a welcome change from the usual Pinoy sweet bread) and the patience and care into making this dense and hefty bread isn't its only appeal: it's also a healthier take on bread. Sourdough is actually made with natural ingredients and the fermentation process makes the bread easier to digest, it has high fiber content, and has a ton of nutrients.
If you're looking into trying sourdough bread, B55 Microbakery's versions are a great way to try it because of the affordable price points.
B55 Microbakery offers sourdough pandesal (P110 per dozen; cheese version, P195 per dozen), which are more dense than your usual breakfast bread. It also has mild flavors which is great for people who are more used to sweet pandesal.
The sourdough milk buns are a must-buy (P205 per dozen): they are soft, milky, and buttery buns. It's good on its own but also great with a smear of butter, jam, or your favorite palaman! The bakery also churns out sourdough batard (P150 per loaf), which is slightly tangy and has a moist crumb; you can pair this bread with saucy dishes, chili con carne, and your favorite pasta dish.
