Palms Country Club's Famous Ensaymada

Two weekends ago, Paul and I spent the night in Alabang. As soon as it has been finalized that we will be heading to the South, I sent fellow blogger Jane a message asking her for recommendations on where to eat. Jane, as we all know already, is one of the sweetest person in the planet. She replied with a good long list and in addition to that, she asked me if she can send me a box of yummy ensaymada from Palms Country Club. This is an exclusive country club located in Alabang and they're known for their buttery, to-die-for ensaymada. Of course, I said YES! Thank you Jane!

We agreed to meet up after my cooking class at Global Academy and despite being soooo busy preparing for her lovely daughter's debut party, Jane still made it a point to get us that box of ensaymada.

Paul and I brought the ensaymada with us all the way to the South and back home. As soon as we reached the house the following day, Paul and I opened the box and shared a giant piece. We purposedly kept it out in room temperature and ate it without heating it in the oven. Look at how it's generously topped with cheese and butter. Creamy goodness indeed!

I've tried a number of ensaymadas out there and only a few has really made it to my list. Now I know why Jane loves this ensaymada. Who wouldn't? The bread is fluffy and soft and I really enjoyed biting into the tiny yet generous amount of sweet ham. It wasn't too sweet and the butter cream was just right not making it too rich and overly calorific. 

It's sad though that this ensaymada is not widely available for the public. The only way to have this is to either be a member of the Palms Country Club or to have a friend who's one. Nonetheless, should you happen to find yourself in the South and you got access to this members-only club then don't forget to bring home a box or two (or maybe a dozen) of their delicious ensaymada.

Palms Country Club is located at 1410 Laguna Heights Drive, Filinvest City, Alabang, Muntinlupa.
