Senorita bread (Spanish bread) is a light, fluffy sweet bread hiding a butter and brown sugar filling, it’s simple, but it’s so delicious, and there’s nothing Spanish about this bread, it’s 100% Filipino.
In this blog post, I will give you all information you need to make Senorita Bread more perfectly. Enjoy!

First, what is senorita bread?

Senorita Bread is one of the most popular snacks in the Philippines. It has nothing to do with the Spanish bread of Spain country (Pan de Horno). It’s completely Filipino.

Why is it called Spanish bread?

He is called Spanish bread possibly because that they share a similar form (rolled), but the Filipino version of Spanish bread has a sweet buttery filling it in!

How to make Senorita Bread?

For getting Senorita Bread (Spanish bread) more perfectly, You should follow three steps.
Let’s start and enjoy it!

Senorita Bread Dough:

Senorita Bread Dough

In a large bowl, begin with four and a half cups of all-purpose flour.
1 and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
1/3 cup of sugar and two teaspoons instant yeast.
Give all dry ingredients a mix.
Next, pour 1 and 1/4 cup milk. You may need more or less depending on how wet your dough becomes.
So turn on the mixer and incorporate as much of the milk as you can into the dry ingredients.
Next, crack two eggs into the mixture. Surely you should be mixing all the wet ingredients together first, but being lazy in this recipe is not too harmful.

Mix that all up, and if you notice that your dough is still a bit dry, add a splash of milk. I guess you’ll prefer your dough to be more wet than dry so that the final Senorita Bread can be fluffier.
Finally, add 1/3 cup of melted butter.

Now make sure it’s not scorching hot or else it’ll kill the yeast. Now all you need to do is set your mixer to medium speed. And it takes approximately 10 minutes before the dough is ready.

You’ll know it’s done when the dose stretches out before it breaks.
When the dough is ready, cover it and let it rise until doubled in size, which may take about 1 hour or longer. Now while the dough is rising will form the senorita bread filling.

Ok, after finishing the dough, let’s make senorita bread filling!

In the medium bowl, we’re going to melt 1/3 cup of butter just melted enough to be mixed well with 2/3 cup of brown sugar.

Mix these two well until combined and then pour in 1/3 cup of warm milk.
Give everything a mix and then add 1/4 cup of flour, after mixing the powder in, add 1/2 cup of bread crumbs (Use any brand you want), once you got this all mixed, set it aside.

After we finished making the filling and dough, let’s prepare and cook our sweet, delicious bread.

Making Senorita bread:

If your senorita bread dough is ready and has doubled in volume, it’s ready to punch down.
So lightly flour your work surface and then tip out the dough. Continue to press out as much air as you can, then work your dough put it all together and make it look beautiful, and then we’re going to divide this dough as evenly as potential.

Roll it into a log into a ball whatever you need to do to get to about 20 pieces of dough all about roughly the same sizes, and it actually doesn’t have to be perfect, though.
Take pieces of dough and flatten them out into disks.

Grab the filling we made earlier and then used a spoon to spread out the filling onto the dough.
Make sure you leave some space at the ends so that you can securely pinch the ends of the dough.

Once you’ve completed rolling and pinching the disks, it’s time to roll it around on a plate with more breadcrumbs on it.
Cover the dough with bread crumbs on all sides and then place them on a baking sheet, now repeat this 19 more times (maybe you can ask someone to help you or end up contemplating why you decided to make this on your own).

It’s not too bad; actually, you get better with each roll.
Now once you’re done, cover the finished dough rolls with plastic wrap and allow it to puff up for about 30 to 40 minutes.
Now they’re ready to be baked.
Stick them in a preheated 350 degree Fahrenheit oven for 20 minutes or until the Senorita Bread has pretty browned.
And that’s it!
