This is a very easy recipe to follow. I learned how to make pan de sal at Sylvia Reynoso's baking school.
1 T. Instant Dry Yeast, 1 1/2 t. White sugar, 1 1/3 C. Water. Combine in a Kitchen Aid bowl and cover for 5 minutes. Then add 1/4 C. Brown sugar and 1 t. Salt.
Add 1/4 C. Cooking oil or shortening and 4 C. Bread flour ( I used all purpose flour). Using a dough hook attachment, knead for 5 minutes. Transfer into an oiled bowl. Turn the dough over a few times to ensure it is covered in oil. Cover with cling fling and let it rise for about 25 minutes.
Turn out the dough on a clean surface and roll like a baston.
1/2 C. Breadcrumbs
Sprinkle breadcrumbs over the baston and roll again in breadcrumbs.
Using a dough cutter, cut in to 2 inch pieces.
Put on a greased baking pan, cut side up.
Let it rise until double in bulk.
Bake in a 400F oven for 15 minutes.
