American Bakery
...they have the best Spanish Gold bread!


December 2013

American Bakery is known for their Spanish Gold bread -- soft, sweet, golden-colored, rolled, and perfect with a cup of hot, strong coffee.

I have fond recollections of the sugar-butter-covered bread pictured above -- I believe they are called ensaymada. A package seemed to always be at somebody's house. It's amazing how the butter stays on them in Guam's weather....or maybe it's butter-flavored Crisco? Either way, it's good if you like the creaminess on top of your bread.

I've had this thing with hopia, especially the ones made with mung bean. There used to be a little bakery stand at Town House -- is it still called Town House -- near the inside entrance to Payless. Oh man, they made the best mung bean hopia.

The red bean paste hopia wasn't bad, but it still came in second to the mung bean flavor.
