Filipino Spanish Bread Rolls; Bread Baking Babes

Filipino Spanish Bread Rolls.

It almost sounds is if these delicious treats have an identity crisis,

The Philippines used to be a Spanish colony so it’s only natural that most of their cuisine, including bread, has a Spanish influence.

Aparna, of My Diverse Kitchen, and our host kitchen for the month says she has no idea why this particular bread, of all Spanish-influenced breads, is called ‘Spanish Bread’.

Sometimes we have to stop asking why and just accept.

(That happens a lot in my French class….Why is a table feminine and a bra masculine?)

I digress….

And all of the Babes have accepted that there are delicious…..

Whether they are neat rolls or crooked rolls or crescent rolls; flavored with cinnamon or cardamom or cumin (don’t ask) or just sugar it appears they are a hit.

For breakfast, dinner, coffee; fresh from the oven or from the freezer via the microwave.

  1. As always, it’s wonderful to see all the BBBabes’ breads together on one page.

    As for the question about why “bra” is masculine, that seems obvious to me. It is undoubtedly men who designed the uncomfortable things (and who so often seem intent on undoing them), so it’s fitting (no pun intended) that the name should be masculine. But I can think of no good reason for why “table” is feminine.

    • It really drives my crazy. When one is talking one can just kind of mumble the le / la and people hear what they expect to hear. Doesn’t work when one is writing – like in class lol

  2. ROFL, yes, I like not having masculine and feminine forms in English, though it would make learning other languages easier if we did I suppose! And yes Elizabeth, I imagine the over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder was definitely originally designed by a man. But any gender should love all our breads! Thanks for rounding them all together Katie.
