Ube Macapuno Pandesal

Pandesal or Pan de sal (bread roll) is the most popular bread in the Philippines, and almost everyone grew up eating it. While good on its own, infusing it with other flavors just makes it even more amazing! This is my own iteration on the famous marriage between Ube (purple yam) and Macapuno (soft coconut meat). It’s so easy to make and when you bite into this fluffy bread, all the naturally sweet Macapuno oozes out.
