filipino bread recipe

sugarNspice Dec 22, 2010 01:06 AM

Does anyone know the name or have a recipe for what I believe is a Filipino bread. It's a slightly sweet white bread with cream cheese filling. I remember when I was younger my parents would take us to a Filipino bakery for warm Pan de Sal and this bread.

    Here is a link to descriptions of various Filipino breads and pastries.

      Thank you for the link. Looks like it could be cheesemosa, ensaymada, or Spanish bread. Now, I'm having a hard time finding recipes...any suggestions?

        Sorry, I just found the bakery descriptions via Google. Other than that I'm not familiar with Filipino pastry or bread.

      What shape was the bread and did it come wrapped in anything? I immediately thought of ensaymada and mamon, but those are roll-shaped. If it was loaf-shaped, I don't think it is Filipino.

        hi, it could be possibly ensaymada with cheese in it.
