Ensaimada has always been a family favourite. My mum often orders this and we would eat the entire box in one day. Its a soft fluffy bread that often has butter, sugar and Edam cheese as a topping.
I'm not really a bread baking kinda girl. The thought of waiting and punching out dough scares me. On Saturday as I was getting ready to read through some emails my mum shouts out "Oi we are making it". So I said "what are we making what?" Then she said "Ensaimada hurry we are making it."
So I went to the kitchen and she had a recipe ready for us to get started. She chose a recipe on Burnt Lumpia. She must have spent some time on Google looking for a good recipe. I was so glad she chose one that came from a fellow food blogger's site.
Punching out the dough was fun. It's a great way to relieve stress. Just think of your worse enemy and punch away...
The Ensaimada was delicious. My mum and I looked at each other in shock as we bit into the hot bread. I will definately be making this again. It was also a great bonding experience for me and my mum. She only yelled at me once. ehehehe..
