When I was in the Philippines, I did not really know how to make Bischocho. Why would I bother making one when this is everywhere in the Philippines. Here in the US, however, is a different story. In order to eat and enjoy Biscocho, you have to order it online or in my case, I have to drive 8 hours to Chicago to find a Filipino store who carry it (that if there is any). Or order it online.And believe it or not, our Asian store do not carry it either so I made it on my own… not that I have the innate knowledge of making it, but it was by accident.


It all started when Costco opened its doors here in Wichita and they have a slice bread sale in which you get 2 loaves of slice bread for $3.00. Being a sale freak that I am , I bought more than the family can eat so I am left with almost stale slice bread. By heaven’s intervention, I decided to melt a butter and brush it on the bread, sprinkle it with sugar. I then baked it and surprisingly, it tasted like the Biscocho I always had in PI. Boy, was I so pleased with myself and it has become a snack staple in the house. I even bought a new large container for it.
