Monay is one of the fresh bake that I make on my bakeshop. One of the favorite Filipino bread merienda.
It’s milky and best serve when hot with coffee too and also milk or hot choco.
The bread is best with any stuffing such as eden cheese or any brand, cheese whiz, different variety of lady’s choice, margarine and can add sugar, and anything you can spread in your typical bread.
Monay is commonly found in most small bakeries in the Philippines which you can see it everywhere.
Here is the easy recipe you can get at you can bake it at home.
- all-purpose flour
- teaspoon salt
- powdered milk
- active dry yeast
- warm water
And here is the directions in making our monay
In a bowl, mix the flour, salt, and powdered milk together. Set aside.
Meanwhile, in another bowl mix the yeast with 1 ½ cups of the warm water. Make sure that the yeast is active, meaning bubbles should be visible. Add the sugar and give it a stir. In a small bowl, mix the melted butter with 2 egg yolks. Now, mix both the yeast mixture and the butter mixture together.
Slowly mix the wet and dry ingredients together until it becomes a dough. Knead the dough and form a ball. Put the dough in a bowl and cover it with a kitchen cloth. Leave it for 2 hours until the dough doubles its size. (An alternative is put the dough in a 180-degree oven for 30-40 minutes.)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Knead the dough again for about 5 minutes. Form a log and slice it into the desired size.
Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray or vegetable oil and arrange the rolls on the pan.
Bake until golden brown.
