Macapuno Ube Ensaymada

This is such a delicious bread. My husband and I love to eat them! He asked me to make them again and again. But I need to stop since these are pretty fattening. I can only eat this once a Thanks to Manang for sharing this recipe. I only make half the recipe each time since it usually takes us 3 days to finish them. I usually wrap each bread in a sandwich bag and eat them each day.:)

Here is the link to the recipe: Supersoft Ensaymada
I used macapuno and ube paste as fillings for these bread. After the bread is cooled I used whipped butter and sprinkle with sugar.

Please follow the instruction and not be like me.....:)
I realized that I didn't follow I forgot to divide the flour into 3. I poured all the liquid into the flour and started mixing it with my chopsticks, then I realized why the dough is so Then I went back and read the Oops. So I went and melt the butter and add in the egg and 2 egg yolks. Then mix everything together and leave it to let it rise for 2 hours. Then I beat it down and let it refrigerate for just another hour...hehehe

nicely done! that's funny that you only allow yourself to eat it once a month. now when you say once a month.. do you mean just ONE roll, or the entire batch? hehe.

Hi! i was wondering where you got the macapuno and ube paste. I really wanted to try this recipe but i just don't know where to get these ingredients.

You can get the macapuno at the Asian supermarket. They are in a glass jar next to the canned fruits or canned desserts. I think they have yam paste too. I made mine from scratch and didn't really measure the ingredients when I made it.
