One of my resolutions this year is to learn how to cook.
Today I decided to do a simple Filipino breakfast treat–the Flying Saucer.
I like adding Star Margarine sweet blended mixture to the already buttery and sugary ensaymada. You can also use Star Margarine original then add sugar. Butter or other Margarine brands can substitute for Star Margarine, but those choices will not have the traditional Filipino taste.
Wait until the sugar is cooked into a glaze.
Fry them a little longer, so they’ll have a burnt sugary glaze. Now you have your yummy Flying saucers!
That’s what I learned from my lola.
How about you, what do you love eating for breakfast?

 I do not know why they are called Flying saucers. If you know why, leave a comment below.
