Before I continue, let me give you some Ensaymada 101. Made with flour, eggs, sugar and butter, ensaymada apparently originated in Spain and has became a breakfast/merienda staple in the Philippines. I grew up having all sorts of ensaymadas from the ones with quezo de bola to the savory kind with ham and cheese. While I'm not a big fan of bread or buttery pastries, ensaymada remains to be one of my favorite afternoon choice most especially when paired with a steaming mug of hot chocolate. Ohh...the thought of it is making my mouth water.
Finally, it was time to dig in. I just have to say... these are the fluffiest, yummiest ensaymadas that I've ever had! I love the Household Favorite as it was just so melt-in-your-mouth cheesy good! The Creamy Floss was also perfect and I will surely be ordering a box of this when I go home in a few months. As for the Purple Yam, Paul had this piece all to himself and said that it was very good!
Now, these babies make great Christmas gifts, don't you think? Beat the holiday rush and place your orders now!
