Filipino Spanish Bread is a popular ‘merienda’ or afternoon snack in the Philippines. It has nothing to do with the Spanish bread of Spain(Pan de Horno) except maybe that they share the same form (rolled) but the Filipino version of Spanish bread has a sweet buttery filling in it.

Filipino Spanish Bread Recipe


  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour 
  • 1/2 cup sugar 
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 pouch rapid rise yeast 
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 3/4 cups evaporated milk or fresh milk 
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup water
  • extra flour for kneading


  • 1/3 cup softened butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla


  1. In a bowl, mix and combine all filling. Set Aside.
  2. Stir and dissolve yeast in warm water (110-115 degrees F). Let it sit for five to ten minutes. Set aside for awhile.
  3. In a another bowl, mix milk, sugar, butter, egg yolks and salt. Combine it well and add the yeast water. Gradually add flour and mix well to make a stiff dough. Dough should be slightly stiff and elastic. Add the remaining flour in portion and check the consistency first before adding all the remaining.
  4. On a flat working table, dust it with flour and knead the dough for about 10 minutes or until dough is smooth & elastic.
  5. Transfer the dough to a greased bowl, cover with a damp cloth and let it rise in a warm place for at least an hour. (Away from air or keep it inside a turned off oven or a cabinet)
  6. After an hour and dough has risen, place the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Use a dough slicer to divide the dough into 4 equal parts. Roll each part until it forms into a log. Cut each log into equal pieces.
  7. Using a rolling pin, flatten each dough until it stretches into an elongated triangular shape. Spread your filling then roll up.
  8. Cover the dough with bread crumbs and place on lightly greased baking tray. Let it stand again, cover the tray with a damp cloth and let it rise for an additional 20-30 minutes.
  9. Prepare your oven and preheat to 325 degrees F. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
  10. Serve hot. Enjoy!
