I'm sharing my version of the hot ube pandesal we ate for breakfast as kids and even for merienda (snack time), with hot chocolate or warm milk. I love food with ube flavor, so I incorporated it into my favorite breakfast bread. I know there are many pandesal recipes online, but I hope you try this and let me know what you think. Thank you! Serve hot with or without the spread of your choice. Warm leftovers in a toaster oven before serving for better taste.
