How to Reheat Pandesal in the Oven
Indulging in a warm, freshly baked pandesal is undoubtedly one of life’s simple pleasures. However, there may be times when you have some leftover pandesal that has gone cold and stale. No need to worry! In this guide, we will show you how to reheat your beloved pandesal using an oven so that it tastes just as delicious as when it first came out of the bakery.
Gather Your Supplies
Preheat Your Oven
Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). Allow it to reach this temperature before moving on to the next step for optimal results.
Prepare Your Pandesal
Take your stale or cold pandesal and place them on a clean baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Make sure they are evenly spaced apart for even heating.
If desired, lightly moisten each piece of pandesal with water using a spray bottle or by sprinkling water over them before placing them in the oven. This will help prevent excess drying during reheating.
For added flavor and freshness, you can also brush melted butter over each piece of pandesal before reheating!
Cover with Aluminum Foil
Loosely cover the baking sheet containing your pandesals with another sheet of aluminum foil. This will help retain moisture during reheating while preventing excessive browning on top.
If you prefer slightly crispy tops but still want to retain the softness inside, leave a small opening on one side of the foil cover. This will allow some steam to escape and result in a delightful balance of textures.
Reheat Your Pandesal
Once your oven has reached 350°F (175°C) and your pandesals are prepared and covered with foil, place them in the middle rack of your preheated oven. Allow them to reheat for approximately 8-10 minutes.
Check for Warmth
After the initial reheating time is up, remove the aluminum foil cover from the baking sheet. Gently touch one or two pandesals to check if they are warm throughout.
If you find that your pandesal is still not warm enough, continue reheating for an additional 2-3 minutes until they reach your desired warmth level.
Serve and Enjoy!
Once warmed to perfection, take out your deliciously reheated pandesal from the oven. Serve immediately while still warm alongside butter, jam, or any other spread you prefer. Enjoy this nostalgic Filipino bread as if it were freshly baked!
