Pandesal my way enough for 2
I love Pandesal, so here's my version for a pan of 8
1/2 cup warm water 110 degrees
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon yeast

3 heaping teaspoons of C and H Stevia light sugar
1/4 teaspoon hawaiian salt or fluer de sel
1 tablespoon lilikoi juice
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup wheat flour
1/2 cup bread flour
1/4 cup extra flour (in case you need it)
1 Tablesoon dry milk powder
1 heaping Tablespoon of instant mashed potatoes (dry) I use Idahoan
1/4-1/2 cup honey panko bread crumbs

2 Tablespoon melted butter at room temp
1 egg room temp

Melt butter and let cool
Bloom yeast in warm water at 110 degrees (I put the dry milk powder here)
Put the 1 teaspoon of honey and let the yeast foam for 5-10 minutes

Mix the flours but keep the 1/4 cup on side, salt, sugar and instant mashed potatoes and place in stand up mixer.Add the yeast, lilikoi or guava juice, butter and egg and mix on low then turn to medium with dough hook and let it go for 7 minutes. I you want to knead by hand you can but the dough will be real sticky so I let the machine do it. In the first 2 minutes keep and eye on the dough and add remaining 1/4 cup as needed. You may need more or less just depends. If you want more lilikoi /guava you can add more but you'll need more flour. After the 7 minutes turn dough out onto floured board should feel silky pillow put dough into a ball place in a greased bowl and put a little olive oil on top cover and let rise for 1 hour.

Should have doubled, punch down dough turn out onto floured board don't overwork the dough and roll into an even log and cut into either 8 equal large or 12 small medium.
Put some panko on the bottom of baking pan (use parchment or silpat) lay each pandesal cut side down don't put too close together but use your judgement, sprinkle some on top, let rise for 45-1hour until about doubled in size cover with cellophane and kitchen towels.

Preheat oven for the last 10 minutes 350 degrees. , remove cellophane sprinkle a little more panko and bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
