Recipe Share: Cheesy Ensaymada

Before I start off with the recipe, I just want to share how totally lucky I am to have come across this recipe book. Yummy Bake Give, Sell! cook book is just a great addition to my collection and so far the kulitogs and I have tried about 4 recipes. Our fave is S'mores Cupcakes, so choco and moist.
The cookbook is available in bookstores and grocery stores.

For this post, I'm gonna share the cheesy ensaymada recipe. Warning: the recipe requires a lot of patience and muscle work from y'all. Mala panadero ang emote with all the pounding and kneading.

Here it is, enjoy baking!

Cheesy Ensaymada:
baking time: 30 minutes
prep time: 4 to 5 hours

3/4 cup water
1 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp salt
41/2 cups sifted all purpose flour
1/2 cup grated cheese
1 tbsp plus 1 tsp instant dry yeast
1 tbsp full cream milk powder
6 egg yolks
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup melted and cooled unsalted butter
1/2 cup softened butted

For the Topping:
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar
grated queso de bola (uhm, you can make this recipe after Christmas. Surely you have left over queso de bola by then or you can use boxed cheddar cheese instead)

1. combine water and honey
2. In a bowl, blend salt with flour and cheese. Add honey mixture, yeast. milk powder, egg yolks, sugar and melted butter. Mix at low speed for 5 minutes. Knead until smooth. - I've seen some bakers on TV who doesn't use mixers in baking, just manual mixing and it works as well with a little more patience.
3. Transfer dough to an oiled bowl, cover and let rise for 11/2 hours, or until dough has risen.



 4. Roll out each dough into rectangle and brush with softened butter. Roll on the long side into a cylinder then twirl into a coil. Tuck the end at the bottom and place on a greased baking tray or ensaymada molder.
5. Cover and let rise until double the size. - this part is fun to watch especially for first time bread bakers
6. Preheat oven to 350degreesF and bake the ensaymada for 15 to 20 minutes.
7. For the topping: beat the butter with sugar until fluffy. Spread on top of baked ensaymada and sprinkle with cheese.


This recipe makes about 17 yummy and fluffy ensaymada :)
