Ensaimada de Mallorca
Hand-kneaded , how's that for dedication lol
I've been itching to make some ensaimada , the Filipino version since forever .
As it is a bread , yes , with yeast , I just ignore it and made some easy to make recipe without yeast .
I need to practice making bread as there are loads of wonderful bread recipe out there .....
As everybody will agree , nothing beats homemade !
But instead of making the Filipino version initially , I stumbled upon this Spanish version .
It is more easy and straightforward and only use 2 eggs .
I was concerned at first when I read it at Deliciousdays' blog that her dough was sticky since I'm planning to make mine by hand .....
I made some variations in the filling and been planning to add cream cheese , grated cheese and sugar , peanut butter , apricot jam and strawberry preserves .
The first two , I've forgotten to take out from the fridge -___-''
The peanut butter works very well , though a tad dry , I love the jam and the preserves but the bottom becomes sticky as some of the filling leaked out .
With peanut butter filling
apricot jam filling
One with butter and sugar combo and top with grated cheese
Me ?! I love it plain or fancy ! But then I made it using elbow grease , right ?! lol
