Unlike my mother who always buy extras, the selfish part of me only buy one – especially something that is new. One early morning, I bought the usual pan de sal for me and John for the weekend and this ginormous ensaymada.
I have had many different ensaymada from my parents’ discoveries, relatives from different provinces and even in posh bakeshops. I have had ensaymada with cheddar, salted egg, a dollop of whipped butter (this was yummy), quezo de bola, macapuno, ube halaya, soft like buttah, eggy like brioche and cake-y.
Pan de Manila’s Ensaymada Espesyal was doughy laden with butter. There’s a slight resistance when I bite into it with hints of margarine, a little sugar and the Quezo de Bola. A nice afternoon snack. If only I had some old fashion hot chocolate to go with it.
Have you tried Pan de Manila’s Ensaymada Espesyal?
Any suggestions where to buy good ensaymada?
