As the name already implies, Biscocho is obviously another one of those Spanish-influenced snacks that Filipinos have embraced and assimilated.

The word biskotso itself seems to be a Filipinized version of the Spanish “bizcocho” which literally means “biscuit.”

Biscocho Recipe has its counterparts in the Hispanic and Latin American countries, with varying similarities to our recipe.

Biscocho Filipino (Biskotso)

In the Philippines, Biscocho is typically associated in the Visayan province of Ilo-Ilo wherein the bread is baked to a toast then topped with butter or margarine, sugar, and garlic (which is optional).

However, because of the mobility of the Filipinos, this Biscocho recipe has been brought over to the country’s different regions.

Depending on who is preparing the biskotso or on convenience, the bread can be baked at home, be brought from the supermarket or one can always grab the leftover bread from yesterday’s merienda.

Biscocho Recipe Tip & Preparation

This Biscocho recipe is easy to prepare that there is barely any real cooking that will go on.

One will just have to spread the butter or margarine and sugar (you can adjust the amount of sugar depending on how sweet or unobtrusive you want the sugar to be) and toast it in a toaster.

If you do not have a toaster though, you can lightly spread a very thin layer of butter on a flat pan and toast the bread on top.

Biscocho recipe is sure to be a go-to recipe for your merienda or breakfast meals. As a breakfast fare, this can be eaten as another meal or as a standalone.

For merienda in both midday and mid-afternoon, this is always served as a standalone.

Best served with hot coffee or chocolate, this is sure to tickle one’s taste buds in the morning and refresh one’s stomach in your midday or mid-afternoon merienda.
